Dan Hazelton Tattoos & Paintings
In continuing to highlighting tattoo art featured in my upcoming book, I figured I'll give ya some biomech goodness courtesy of Dan Hazelton.
I've been a fan of Dan's work for a while--not just his tattooing but also his airbrush art on everything from canvas to cars to guitars and indoor decor like his work for Ice Bar. Tattooing professionally since 1996, this Milwaukee native spent 9 years at Absolute Tattooing in Menomonee Falls working on finding his style and building clientele, and now can be found at his own private studio in West Allis, WI (by appointment only).
I asked Dan about the influences in his art, and here's what he said:
"My influences consist of the amazing Guy Aitchison, Robert Hernandez, Aaron Cain, and Paul Booth to name just a few--all of whom are greatly responsible for my style. I like to do a lot of biomech and sometimes throw in some expression-filled faces or skulls. Some eyes and mouths are always good too! That is my main focus lately. I do tend to dabble in other styles but it's getting rare.
Check out Dan's digital prints, like the one below, which he has for sale on his site.
