Abe Lincoln

Higgs Mashup- Ron Henry Wells

RHWDHMUEverything about this tattoo kicks ass.
When I got tattooed a few weeks ago by David Bruehl, we were talking about Ron’s aesthetic and it’s influence (sometimes subtle, sometimes less so) on recent tattoo culture. His output could be described as ‘instantly recognizable’ if he didn’t constantly put out work that just goes it’s own direction and creates something wholly new. This piece, for example, is a mashup of two Daniel Higgs designs, filtered through Ron’s negative space style. It’s rare to see something ‘new’ come across my social network feed, but this one… all I can say is wow.

You can see more of Ron’s work (including some new Twin Peaks inspired tattoos.. means I need to update the Twin Peaks entry) at http://laughinghyena.wordpress.com.
