Alucky produces incredibly intricate ink patterns

Designers are known for showcasing their creative passions with inspiring tattoo art designs (opens in new tab). And whatever tattoo style you personally prefer, there's no denying that Japanese tattoo designs (opens in new tab) are some of the most intricate and impressive around.

Proving our point is Japanese tattoo artist Kenji Alucky (opens in new tab), who specialises in the stippling method. This is where the tattoo design is made by inscribing countless tiny black dots onto the skin to produce something truly remarkable.

Combining an array of influences, his work is spectacularly intricate - producing awe-inspiring patterns and imagery. Want an Alucky special on your skin? He'll be based at the New York Adorned tattoo studio (opens in new tab) in New York City until 20 November 2013.
