Traditional Blackwork Tattoos by Bugsy

 

When it’s in black, it makes an impact!

Bugsy is another blackwork artist at Third Eye Tattoo in Melbourne, Australia. What separates him from the other artists at his shop is that his pieces are predominantly traditional.

Some are like old-school flash designs, and others are more modern but with all the traditional tattoo elements. No matter if the piece requires quite a lot of shading or combines just of bold linework- when it’s in black, it definitely makes an impact. For bold blackwork tattoos that will hold for years to come, Bugsy is the man to get tattooed by.
