Berlin based American tattooer Brian Kelly specialises in what he describes as the New Traditional Style, which is a re-imagined version of traditional tattoo designs, sometimes referred to as “old school” tattoos.
His tattoos follow the basic principles of what will make a good readable tattoo that will last a lifetime. He is not offended, however, if you call his designs Neo Traditional or even New School.
When not tattooing, Brian Kelly is usually painting tattoo flash. He takes pride in creating as much flash as he can, with only a brush for his fine line work and soft spit-shaded gradients.
He has lived in Berlin for the last decade, but is always looking for home.
