Outstanding Tattoos by Chaim Machlev.
This Israeli born artist Chaim Machlev has been living in Berlin for many years and feels like he is part of this city. He is sought-after for his developed style of fluid line art and intricate geometric patterns that are partially inked with a stippling technique.
Among other things, Chaim Machlev is a master of dot and line. While his stippled tattoos align more towards sacred and symmetrical geometries, his line work is ironically organic and flowing, as if reacting to lines and curves in the body. The tattoo pictured here straddles both extremes, marrying a phenomenal line quality with a meticulously balanced composition.
