These are some dark tattoos when it comes to both ink and imagery.
Daniel Pap tattoos bold traditional pieces out of Skintastic Tattoo in Coolangatta, Queensland, Australia.
Pap’s tattoos are a nice alternative to all the black and grey horror realism we often see. The artwork is bold, but with a subtle creepy vibe. Even something as simple as a traditional rose can look more ominous when tattooed with rich black ink.
When you want to steer clear of the usual traditional tattoos, go for something like a skull or vicious animals with sharp teeth or fangs, like bats, snakes and wolves. Add lots of black shading and you’re on your way to a badass dark traditional flash tattoo.
If this style is right up your alley, then you’ll love Daniel Pap’s tattoos!
