Super Timor is one of these artists, who’ll tell you your idea is bad and your design sucks. He prefers to ink people, who have a clear idea of what they want and that want to have something unique. If you go to his shop and ask for a rose tattoo, you’ll leave disappointed. He feels comfortable drawing strongly graphic designs, and it’s quite visible in his work.
Super Timor believes the color in colorful tattoos puts a barrier in front of him. He is positive that colors are stopping him from creating sharp, contrast and eye-catching designs.
