I found this super-up-close slow-motion video, embedded below, on Pete Chile -- aka Chilly Pete -- and thought I'd share his work as well. Pete, who is a resident artist at Daredevil Tattoo in NYC, works in a variety of tattoo styles, from ultra-bold traditional to Japanese to woodblock print inspired work. In fact, you'll see a lot of the latter on his Instagram, which I'm really digging.

The video of Pete tattooing, by Don Razniewski (who did Daredevil's tattoo history-laden museum fund video), is dramatic (maybe it's the moody music) and even hypnotic, just following the needles slowly puncture the skin, following the work from lining to completion. Definitely worth a look.
