Combining vibrant bursts of color with energetic lines, tattoo artist Felipe Rodrigues captures the carefree fluidity of a pen-and-ink sketch. The Brazil-based creative is inspired by quotes and music, often pairing the two on his popular Instagram. As a result, his subjects and themes are diverse, from animals and nature to religion and death. No matter if they’re joyous or macabre, Rodrigues’ technique grabs your attention with just a few masterful strokes.
