Shawn Barber knows a thing or three about what goes into a tattoo from concept to creation and the artist is an integral part of it. Rather than paint through skin, Barber paints Tattoo Portraits with oil on canvas and focuses on the things behind the scenes. It’s not all just about hot tatted-up chicks looking pretty it’s about the people and objects that made tattooing what it is today. Shawn Barber, really captures the sort of empowerment tattoos give the people who get them. For more information or to get in touch with the artist, we invite you to follow the link bellow.
