Brilliant Black and Grey Realism by Jonas Bødker


Originally from Denmark, Jonas Bødker is working his tattoo magic at Authentik in Sydney, Australia.

Jonas Bødker produces such smooth black and grey realism tattoos that they look more like photographs. Bødker’s work includes portraits, skulls, animals and still-life imagery.

The rich blacks he implements in his work are off-set by the various shades of grey and skin breaks. To use tiny needles to inject ink into a person’s skin and make it look this incredible is simply amazing.
