So I’ve already contacted the artist (Emils Salmins) who did this girl’s sleeves but they aren’t taking bookings for another year or 2:
Any recommendations for artists? It’s this sort of mix of mainly blackwork and traditional.
Most blackwork for me is either too focused on “shapes” or has too much realism and not dark enough black in it.
I love the style in this where it’s got tons of high contrast and a bit of a “traditional” vibe if you will and lots going on, and really dark blacks, but I can’t for the life of me find an artist to do something like this.
