Trippy Linocut Tattoos by Dusty Past

Neon day and night linocut tattoo by Dusty Past

“I’m in love with linocut and wood engravings,” Eugene tells me. He tattoos as Dusty Past, a name inspired by the texture of 35mm photography. “I started carving linocuts three years ago to make t-shirts. I soon made a tattoo in the same style, and liked how it looked: still bold and simple, but not traditional.”

Eugene is always on the road, experimenting with different themes and color schemes. “I like to switch universes,” he says. “I’m always tripping the endless deserts of my imagination. That’s what I’m trying to say through my art. The universe is not just a place for aliens flying UFOs. There are a lot of dreamy places in the cosmos, waiting for some lost stranger to come.”
