We noticed Chris for his Neo Traditional style that includes images of animals, faces and skulls, decorated with ornaments that play with snakes, horns, plumages or flowers.
Chris Arroyo lives in Mexico City and works at Nueva Sangre Tattoo. His subjects show a three-dimensionality given by the use of strong and defined shades and outlines, such strength and power that make his tattoos similar to sculptures carved on the skin.
Faces of tigers, portraits of dogs, faces of wolves, crows, as well as owls and birds, fill his imagination as a tattoo artist. Chris loves to frame the main subjects of his work, so that under a tiger’s face split in half the face of a woman emerges, in the mouth of a panther the eyes of a skull light up, or under helmets decorated with snakes a marble face takes shape, with a fixed gaze, eyes that show the emptiness of their soul.
His works bring to mind epic battles and clashes between divine heroes, metamorphoses and shields, they are timeless beauties, enriched by so much solidity of calibrated colors and linked to the Neo Traditional trend. On his Instagram, together with tattoos, Chris publishes his works on paper and sketches of future tattoos, backpiece and body suit studies, and large drawings, sources of inspiration for those looking for a new Neo Traditional tattoo.
