The Englishman Josh Peacock came into tattooing in 2010, after the career as illustrator and graffiti artist.

These areas of activity had a greater impact on his tattoo work, bringing a high contrast of images, bold color solutions and comic plots.

One of the latest Josh's experiments is the cartoon toothy creatures, made in canons of the New school tattoo and flavored with a dose of surrealism.

Their bodies live in the plane of simple geometric patterns and colors, while their mouths are wide open, exposing rather realistic human teeth, with their lacks and individual characteristics without any embellishment.

“We all crave a Hollywood smile but we risk becoming homogenized and sacrificing a small facet of our personality,” he said in one interview. “If my tattoos make my clients smile to themselves once a day, then I am a happy man.”
