Extreme tattoos and body modification are edgy and unique ways of expressing one’s individuality. And that’s why tattoo fans trade paper and canvas for skin. Because many see permanent inking as an identity. And designs often range from small images to intricate sleeves. But British tattoo artist Eli Ink has taken all that to the extreme. Because he’s got a truly unique and brand of tattoo art. Eli Ink is deep into his ongoing quest to cover his entire body with black ink. And it’s clear the 24-year-old artist isn’t ashamed of his arresting image. Because why should he be? It rules.
Meet Eli Ink
Eli Ink is a 27-year-old tattoo artist from Brighton, England. According to Ink, his extreme body modifications are merely an extension of his deep-rooted appreciation for art. “I’ve always been blown away by art itself,” he said. “Picasso is a huge childhood inspiration to me, especially abstract art, but I do like all forms of art. Body art was just the next local step for me growing up.”
