Line and Dot Work by Francesco Rossetti

Eye of Horus, blackwork tattoo on arm

Currently working at the London Classic Tattoo Parlour, Francesco Rossetti takes a linear approach to his tattoo designs. Comprising blackwork and systems of dot work and straight lines, he creates images that have depth and movement without gradient shading. By subtly adjusting the weight of his lines—and injecting his work with moments of mystery—recognizable images emerge like the eye of Horus, a skull, or a mountain reflection.
