Tattoos: Pumping Blood into Ribbon Heart

Ribbon Heart tattoo on chest by SV.A

Russian tattooist Andrey Svetov (known as SV.A) is consistent with his art style and black-ink-only technique. His work is heavily inspired by etchings from the Renaissance era, and also antique imagery found in manuals with studies of insects, plants, and more.
