Schwarzer Peter; Powerful Neo-trad Blackwork Straight Out of Berlin!
Schwarzer Peter is currently working out of Smile and Cry Tattoo, in Berlin Germany. Peter wanted to tattoo from a very young age.
Ever since he was looking at tattoo magazines with his brother, at the mere age of 13, he has wanted to do something with tattoos.
Luckily for us here at MediaZink as well as the fortunate people he has tattooed, in his 11 year long career. Peter became a tattoo artist and quite the talented one at that. His line work is some of the most solid we have seen in some time and he cares about every spot he creates, whether it is in dotwork, mandalas or neotraditional. The last of those 3 styles, is perhaps the most impressive of Peters, as he makes something which isn’t common, work very well, blackwork neotraditional, but don’t worry, he does do colorful neotradional tattoos as well.

Final Comments and Gallery:
Schwarzer peter, a no nonsense tattoo artist that knows what he wants and works towards it. He simply loves what he is doing and wants to keep getting better at it, improving his skills and creating more and more powerful and beautiful designs. He is however not without ambition, he does want to open his own shop. But as long as he can keep tattooing, creating powerful strong tattoo designs, this tattoo artist seems to be happy and satisfied. As satisfied as a tattoo artist can be, who always wants to improve and get better.
But anyone who likes the allure of black work, perhaps who would love some neotrad stuff, should not miss out on this talented tattoo artist.
