Artist Spotlight: Darcy Nutt, Chalice Tattoo
In Boise, Idaho, Darcy Nutt of Chalice Tattoo has a loyal clientele, who trust her for large scale work -- in almost all tattoo genres -- as well as for smaller personal tributes. But it's the process of composing the big work that's particularly interesting to watch, and thanks to Luke Holley, we can. Luke has been documenting each session of a large-scale backpiece Darcy is creating and sharing those videos on Vimeo.
Here's the first session below, where you can see Darcy work, from stencil to tattooing.
There are five videos so far following the progression of this work. The last one, which was posted two days ago, shows how just how beautiful the East Asian iconography is coming together on one very happy, and tough, client.
In addition to the videos, you can see more of Darcy's work on Facebook and on the Chalice Tattoo site.
