This week we're looking at the amazing geometric tattoos done by our pro-team member, the incredibly talented Paul Davies, better known on his Instagram page as @paulokink.
Paul started off by studying Fine Art at University, but his love for tattoos took over, with Paul falling into the art of tattooing in 2009. He began doing hand poked tattoos in a variety of styles, then later moved on to geometric work, focusing on geometric designs, merging them with other styles he'd enjoyed in his earlier career. Paul decided he wanted to settle down in a lovely and relaxed corner of the UK, and around 5 years ago he moved to the beautiful village of Kingsbridge, Devon, where he worked alongisde the talented Dris Donnelly. In November 2017, Paul took over the studio and changed the name to Ragnarok because of his love of Norse mythology.
Over the years, Paul refined his technique working with only black ink and a limited needle selection. A fan of blackwork, Paul's work is always dark, precise, and intricate. Paul was diagnosed with Autism a few years ago which he sees as much more of a help rather than a hindrance in tattooing, as it aids in his concentration, allowing him to have a deep focus for long periods of time, also possibly explaining his love of patterns and structure.
Paul is a very talented artist, and we're really grateful to have him on the Magnum Tattoo Supplies sponsored artist team. Check out his amazing work right here..
A stunning geometric piece featuring a Pyramid and an Illuminati symbol. The extent of the geometric patters in this is incredible.
A gorgeous war tribute piece featuring a wolf, some poppies, and a negative space soldier. We really love the way this tattoo has been done.
Absolutely stunning. An elephant featuring a particularly elaborate and intricate geometric pattern.
Patterns upon patterns,with a gorgeous mandala incorporated into it.
A beautiful tiger piece that consists of all manner of geometry.
We can't get enough of this super-elaborate piece. The staircases in this piece are reminiscent of an M C Escher painting. Incredible.
Paul's eye for detail really is something else, and we're in awe of the elaborate patterns and shapes that he incorporates into his work. We hope you've enjoyed admiring Paul's work just as much as we have! Make sure you give him a follow on Instagram to see even more of his beautiful tattoos, and keep up to date with any tattoo conventions he may be planning in the future months.
