Surrealism in Snuffy’s tattoos

Surrealism is based on the idea of a higher degree of reality connected to certain forms of association so far neglected, on the omnipotence of dreams, on the disinterested play of thought“, it’s written in the Encyclopedia Filosofica and it seems that the art of Snuffy, a New York tattoo artist, who in his tattoos is as if he were able to represent a person’s subconscious, also seems to be based on this theory.

Snuffy plays with body parts, mass culture and technological devices, highlighting their macabre and dark sides. This thematic choice fits perfectly with the stylistic choice to use only black, but with a trait that seems nuanced and is lost in the grain of the skin.
