We never knew surrealism looked so good as tattoos!
Most tattoos have underlying messages that require the observer to ask the owner what they mean. But in this case, I don’t think the owners themselves even understand what their tattoo means! Milan-based tattoo artist Pietro Sedda uses surrealism to ink the flesh of his clients, painting faceless portraits that show what they feel rather than what they appear to be. The designs are a bit disturbing, because you know, faces with no faces, but they’re beautiful nonetheless. It’s tattoo designs like this that make tattooing high art.
I don’t think I can define it. Perhaps melancholc’, said Sedda when asked to describe his style in an interview with InkedMag. ‘I don’t really like definitions. I prefer to talk about talent and imagination. I consider the exchange between myself and the client a fundamental part of my creative process’. Would you get a surreal tattoo?
