Tattoo artist Xoil combines graphic elements, photographs and sketches to create artistic abstract tattoos. Xoil’s tattoo designs are based on the client’s ideas and preferred placement, but the final art work is left up to the artist. Xoil’s tattoos appear to be the body art version of mixed media fine art. Each tattoo is a collage of shapes, ideas and symbols that are not just interesting to look at; the symbols used within the tattoo design gives it a deeper meaning. Birds, flowers, photographs and geometric patterns all compete for attention in Xoil’s bold tattoo designs, along with animals, skeletons, mandalas and paisley patterns.
