Victor J Webster is one tattooist we absolutely admire. And it is not only because of his vibrant and serene style but because of his attitude to tattoo art.
Victor J Webster is an artist, who travels a lot. He is based out his studio in New Zealand – Two Hand Tattoo. For the past few years, he has been to numerous international tattoo shops, as a guest artist. Victor traveled to India, Britain, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Germany. Everywhere he goes, Victor gathers visual and emotional experience, which he incorporates in his tattoo designs.
This might be the reason why Victor’s tattoos are constantly changing. They are pure expressions of his visual preferences and emotional trips. Most of Victor’s recent works gain inspiration of Japanese culture and aesthetic. His tattoos are re-imagined through his personal view and artistic technique.
If you scroll back enough through his designs, you can see how his style is altering and growing with the pass of time. Geometry and tribal designs were the motivation for Victor Webster’s first works. Then he moved on towards flowers, animals and plants depictions. In his massive portfolio tattoos related to Ancient Greek and Roman culture appear from time to time. He also has an interest in linework and decorative patterns. He is including motives, gathering elements from different cultures.
Victor J Webster is a real fan of the black ink and precise tattooing. It’s hard to find an artist, who creates such straight lines as him. Although he is still true to black, in some of his recent works we see some color.
Victor’s passion to tattooing hides in his early years. Since he was a child, with a lot of influence by his artistic parent, Victor’s dream was to have a tattoo. At the age of 14, he was already sure tattooing was his path in life. Today Victor is productive, constantly developing as an artist. It is all thanks to his apprenticeship and the tremendous experience of the years of travel.
