Tattoos: The Upside Down Skull

Red eyed skull on belly. Tattoo by Josh Payne

Josh Payne combines two artistic styles to create his own visual personality. There are parts of images with a soft gradient fill kind of like classical art shading, and then there are geometric shapes that are contrastingly more modern with solid colors. It is challenging to understand the intent of the shapes, other than being placed for eye-candy.
