This Swedish Tattoo Artist’s Impressive Tattoos Are Next Level
Back in the day, you’d either have to be an important member of society (like a chief or warrior) to have tattoos. But things have changed drastically over time. Nowadays, anyone can get inked. And every artist has their own signature style. Some create dainty minimalist ink, others prefer covering large areas and others love covering their client’s skin with vibrant flowers. And one young tattoo artist has stolen the online spotlight yet again with his impressive tattoos. So if you’re a fan of incredibly detailed, black and gray inkwork, this Stockholm, Sweden-based tattoo artist’s work is for you.
Back when the internet first discovered him, the tattoo artist was using the pseudonym Mr. T at Stucklife. Stucklife Barbershop in Stockholm offers more than just stylish haircuts. It also serves as a tattoo parlour and a place where you could get grillz. However, it appears that Mr. T (who now goes as @atypical.thomas on Instagram) has moved to a different tattoo studio, Kontrast Ink Gallery. Nevertheless, his tattoos remain epic in every proportion!
This tattoo artist from Stockholm, Sweden creates the most impressive tattoos
Mr. T’s portfolio consists largely of full-back tattoos and equally amazing ink on other parts of his client’s body. His work features incredibly hyper-realistic portraits, Greek and Roman statues, flowers and even religious imagery. Everything is done exclusively in grayscale. His masterful shading technique allows him to achieve a three-dimensional effect. In fact, the tattoos look as though he had used a charcoal pencil and transferred the finished drawing onto his client’s skin!

Part of the challenge of being a tattoo artist is being well-versed in various art styles. This is to enable them to deliver the vision that their client has in mind for their permanent body art. And we can definitely say that Mr. T is a master of creating impressive tattoos that feature a myriad of characters and elements!
He has created full back designs starring incredibly executed statues, a ship slicing through stormy waters and even a scene featuring a bull and a matador! Needless to say, Mr. T’s mind-blowingly realistic inkwork is a work of art.
Mr. T also does smaller yet still impressive tattoos
Another important quality that a tattoo artist must have is their ability to create any tattoo in any size. That’s why Mr. T doesn’t just work on full-back designs. His portfolio shows off a large number of amazing tattoos on his client’s limbs. These smaller tattoos are definitely easier to accomplish than the larger ones. How about you, reader? Do you have a tattoo, or are you planning on getting your first piece of ink this year? Well, if you happen to be in Stockholm, why not try to book a session with Mr. T?
