Isreali-born tattoo artist Guil Zekri has created his own style of tattooing by combining his art training in Paris with a love of surrealism and fantasy. While the effect of Zekri’s tattoos is realistic, the subject matter in his tattoos is out of this world. Bizarre creatures, humanoid figures and alienish biomechanical shapes combine to form fantastic surrealist scenes on skin.
One of the appealing aspects of Zekri’s style is that he often uses popular characters from films such as Alice in Wonderland, Frankenstein and Pirates of the Caribbean, portraying the familiar faces in his vivid, high contrast style. Another appeal about Zekri’s tattoo talents is that while many tattoo artists specialize in either black ink work or color work, Zekri is skilled in both areas. This means that his clients aren’t held back by this artist’s limitations and can choose to have their chosen design either in bold color or black and white.
