In putting together my tattoo book on blackwork, I've not only been privy to new, stunning work from the world's top tattooists, but also top photography of the art. Today I want to share with you a new photography find:

The tattoo portraits of Lee Corkett, WeatherVane Images, Conejo Valley, CA.

Lee is a freelance photographer and designer who is working with Zulu Tattoo in LA to capture his body of work on beautifully decorated bodies, like this piece on Nikki Haydock.

For a close-up of the tattoo, check out our Flickr page.

What I particularly like about Lee's work is the ease and movement of those bodies; you especially see it in fabulous dance galleries, with some adorned in tattoos and henna art as well.

Catch more of Lee and Zulu's work in my upcoming book.

Beautiful work (both the tattoos and the photography!)



I especially like the flick of Zulu.



I'm getting a peacock tribute very soon! I had one as a pet when I was a kid.



Stunning photography.

It consistently amazes me how good photographers can bring such dimension and life to mundane objects. I wish my eyes worked like theirs.
