I had meant to post about Mark Cross sometime last week, but shit has been pretty turbulent for me these last two weeks, to say the least, which is why there’s been some radio silence. Anway, onto tattoos. For those of you unfamiliar with Mark Cross, he currently tattoos out of Greenpoint Tattoo Co. in Brooklyn, NY. Greenpoint Tattoo Co. is home to several other really awesome tattooers, including Hillary Fisher-White and Chuck Donoghue, so they’re a shop to definitely keep an eye on.
Mark does some really awesome tattoos. His tattoos remind me of that style of traditional tattooing that you see from the dudes at Smith St.-really thick bold outlines, lots of quality shading, and some nice color saturation. Personally, I think Mark does some of the coolest eagles and wolf heads around, and he also coined that sweet ass cat take on the bent-back-bitch skull design, which is seriously awesome. Take a look at some of his work:
Check out Mark’s shop, blog, and follow him on Instagram @mark__cross. You can also check out Greenpoint’s website and follow them on tumblr. Again, Mark is definitely a tattooer to keep an eye out for. NYC is a mecca for tattooing, and Mark Cross is amongst some of the best in the city doing traditional tattooers. Thanks for reading.
