Creating beautifully intricate tattoo artwork, artist Ramon Maiden saturates his illustrations with detail and color to create an intense series of images that are visually enriching.

Layers upon layers of symbolic icons are compiled in every illustration, inviting viewers to take a closer look and delve into the meaning and ideology behind the graphics. Maiden is fond of combining religious imagery with his tattoo art, covering spiritual identities from different beliefs in body ink, staining their appearance. The tattoos are done in blue, harking back to the retro days of body art when every tattoo had a personal meaning to the wearer.

Ramon Maiden's use of religious iconography in his tattoo artwork is enticingly sacrilegious.
