Matt Jordan is an amazing realistic tattoo artist from New Zealand.
Even though New Zealand is a huge country, Matt Jordan is the first real talented Tattoo artist that I’v discovered from there. Although, that could just be the result of me not looking close enough at New Zealand.
Matt Jordan is working from Blue Lotus Tattoo studio in the north shore of Auckland New Zealand. He has been tattooing for the past 6 years in Christchurch at InkGrave Tattoo and Vision Tattoo Nelson. Matt’s main focus is portrait, realistic and realism tattooing…and what superb realistic art he can produce!!
Just look at these two master pieces. The first one, the rose is incredible in so many ways. First of all, the feeling of 3d depth is stunning. Secondly, the level of realism in the rose petals and the dew drops is about as good as it gets!
The second one, the portrait, is more of an artistic piece, and the way he captured the balance of vivid red lips in contrast of the soft milky white skin shading, is so amazing! Pretty much everyone is doing water and few drops in their tattoo design nowadays, but most of then makes the water drops that look like small glass pearls, hovering slightly above the skin or the designed motif. So look closely folks, this is gooood stuff!!
I’m really glad that Matt Jordan has Joined Tattoo Art Project, and I’m certain that he’ll produce bad ass tattoos frequently. Of course Tattoo Art Project will publish Matt’s work as often as possible!!
Very welcome Matt, keep up the realism!
