They Look Like Crests, But They’re Tattoos: 15 Of This Artist’s Most Iconic Works.

Do you know the crests used on clothing and accessories a few years ago? We are sure many will say yes. These objects, which today are considered vintage, were a real must-have among young people to embellish jeans, coats, backpacks, and the like. Symbols, characters, letters, or logos of music groups: proudly displaying a crest means expressing your tastes and preferences clearly and visibly.

And there are people who, after so much time, still get carried away by the charm of these elements, deciding to “update” them and turn them into something new, unique, and original. Did you ever think that a crest could become… a tattoo? This is indeed what the eclectic artist that we are going to present to you does: he designs tattoos that look like crests in all respects. Ready to discover fifteen of his most striking works?
