This Tattoo Spotlight features the gorgeous creations of Den Yakovlev. I had the pleasure of interviewing Den for an issue of Tattooist Art Magazine and was quickly captivated by his portfolio.

This Russian tattooist is steadfastly making a name for himself in the tattoo world. An artist for nearly a decade now, Yakovlev owns Negative Karma Tattoo Studio in Moscow, Russia and keeps extremely busy with an eager clientele.

His portraiture/realism skills are incredible; producing beauty in both the color and black & grey genres.
