Today we want to introduce to you to the representative of the direction of Graphic tattoo - American tattoo artist Christopher Jade.

Christopher uses the plots of the dark Middle Ages in his works, performing them in the style that we freely call «engraving».

This style combines blackwork and whip shading techniques. It help the artist manages to transfer the spirit and severity of the Middle Ages in a format familiar to us from the time of school and the depiction of frescoes in the history book.

The high contrast inherent in these works, complex composition and deep detail are the hallmarks of Christopher Jade and have already earned him international recognition in the modern tattoo community.
