More and more I'm seeing tattoo interpretations of woodcuts, etchings and engravings -- and I'm loving them.  They are highly graphic tattoos that will stand the test of time, and they have a truly old school power to them with a modern styling.

One artist who specializes in this style is Kim Papanatos Rense of Papanatos Tattoos in The Hague, the Netherlands. I recently found Kim through Some Quality Meat, a fun tattoo portal with tattoo videos, images, and news items.

They also are producing a video series called "The Craftsman," which highlights "talented and upcoming tattoo artists from around the globe."  Their first video features Kim. It's embedded below. Check it.
