If you want to get a tattoo that’s really unique, here’s some tips. Try to avoid stars, or cheesy quotes, or your soon-to-be-ex’s face. Or you can get a tattoo from Kenji Alucky from Hokkaido, Japan.

He employs an art technique called stippling, the creation of a pattern by using various shades of small dots. His works are also inspired by geometric shapes of all shapes and sizes. As a result, the tattoo is not only a piece of art, but a product of careful planning and painstaking dedication to the craft.
