Carl Hallowell

I enjoy the purity, truth, and boldness of TRADITIONAL AMERICAN and TRADITIONAL JAPANESE TATTOOING. These types of tattooing employ almost mathematical laws ensuring that each tattoo is a success. To a TRADITIONAL TATTOO ARTIST, your tattoo is not an experiment to exercise the artist’s ego. It is a permanent emblem on your skin which should be TIMELESS, PERSONAL, and POWERFUL.
