Gary Burns is a tattoo artist from Brighton. His glorious artwork consists of a mixture of tribal, symmetrical, Victorian, Buddist and Japanese designs. His handpoked tattoo designs are quirky and fun. Burns uses etching techniques within his more illustrative pieces. He is also involved with Japanese paper cutting. I adore his smooth, winding shapes shown in the slides which are graphic yet feminine. There is something so sleek and simple about bold outlined tattoo’s that lure me in, I feel like coloured, textured tattoos are such a bold statement. In that, I think Burns’ beautiful outlines speak louder than colour. I would love to be tattoo’d by him one day!
