Australia is the birthplace of many great tattooists, some of whom have become amazing successor of classical fine art, some of them are the founders of their own styles, experimenters of techniques, but all of them have taken their places at the forefront of modern tattooing. Today we want to tell you about - Chris "Showstoppr" Mata'afa - is a prominent representative of the modern tattoo realism.

His works, both in black and white and in color tattoo realism, is striking in its detail, contrast and brilliance of colors. Chris is a true virtuoso of this direction of art, forcing his works to literally come to life on skin of his clients. Ripples on the water, playing of light and deep, dynamic shadows - all of these details gives an exceptional charm to his every work.
