Pokeeeeeeeoh and the fascinating art of hand poke
Swedish-born tattoo artist Pokeeeeeeeoh creates simple but fantastic tattoos using the old hand poke technique. Discover his works here!
Looking at the very straight lines and the perfect details you would never believe that Pokeeeeeeeoh tattoos are made entirely by hand, without using any kind of machine. The Swedish tattoo artist is a representative of that group of tattoo artists dedicated to the ancient technique of hand poke.
Tattoos are made by pricking the skin with a needle dipped in ink. The shadows, the thickness of the lines and the heaviness of the ink are given by the size of the needle used and by the pressure of the artist, therefore by his ability.
It is a fascinating art, like his works that portray simple and linear subjects, sometimes with a veil of humor, but never excessive. They are impeccable poems made of ink, indelible over time because such a beautiful work should never be erased.
