A Short Story ft… Leon

I recently shot a short film about tattoo artist (and colleague) Leon who specializes in Maori and Polynesian (tribal) tattoos and one of few people I know who can actually freehand a whole sleeve without an example drawn out in front of him.

It truly is amazing to watch the puzzle unfold since Maori can be a complex maze of lines and is something that has such a rich background of symbolism, making it an art form that you can not just go out and draw slash tattoo on someone just for the fun of it.

If you want a Maori tattoo and something that stands out than I definitely recommend to pay Leon a visit and discuss your next piece of art.

Leon works at Needle Art Tattoo shop in Breda, The Netherlands.
