dreamer tattoo by ben volt

Having been an apprentice of Roxx from 2Spirit Tattoo, Ben Volt is a great addition to this San Francisco studio that focuses on black and dot work. Volt is inspired by typography, stencil and optical art—and his style can be defined by its symmetry, clean lines and simplicity.
