Thomas Hooper: A Healed Back Piece

It’s only natural to question how a healed tattoo will manifest and what those beautiful, crisp lines and deft areas of shading will look like once the body has healed itself following the trauma of a tattoo’s completion. To that end, here’s a wonderful example of one of Thomas Hooper‘s most ambitious projects of corporeal adornment in all of its finalised glory.

We followed the developments of this piece back in October (here) and it’s a joy to see it in full bloom, as though we’ve reached the end of this particular journey between tattoo artist and collector. You can see more images here but for now, please enjoy a couple of macro shots that document the fine detail of Thomas’ renderings.
