When artist Christopher Conn Askew was growing up, he never thought he was going to be an accomplished artist, and he never thought he was going to be an accomplished tattoo artist either.

Christopher Conn Askew began his illustration career when he was just a young lad. Back then, it was more of a hobby. Today, he has fully grown as a man and as an artist. Mastering his tattooing skills, Askew went on to dabble in the world of fine art bringing along his passion for the hallmarks of tattoo art. In his latest exhibit, Askew demonstrates his ability to draw unique images while maintaining the tactics used to tattoo human flesh. His illustrations are a perfect blend of tattoo and fine art, with exceptional attention detail and beautiful usage of colors.

Christopher Conn Askew is now showing his latest work at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles.
