Tomas Tomas is a blackwork,  neo tribal, dotwork, and geometric tattoo artist, tattooing out of the shop, Into You, which is in London England.

Great optical illusion.

Tomas Tomas tattoos large, sometimes spiritual pieces, which often also act as optical illusions. He focuses on the spiritual aspect as well as ornamental with regards to tattooing. His pieces can take a long time to complete, sometimes even adding up to full bodysuits.

Full bodysuit, the dedication of both artist, and client is astounding. 

When asked by the website, needlesandsins, Tomas Tomas had this to say about tribal tattoos.”Further exploration of this practice revealed that, often, tattoos in tribal societies were poetic visual representations of the environments and cultures in which people lived at the time. It was also a celebration of the mysteries of life. I then realized, rather unconsciously, these same desires and values still fuel many to get tattooed today worldwide.” As we can see, he is passionate about this style, and his dedication comes through in the beautifully delicate, and intricate art.

Bold neckpiece.
Another body piece, this one using more or less the same style and designs.
Spiral, detailed piece. Neat to see the connection between back and sleeve.
Delicate lower stomach piece.
Huge detailed skull and intricate geometric sleeves.
Note the matching elbow and neck.
This piece looks almost like armour, and is very pleasing to the eye, especially from a bit of a distance.
Tomas Tomas also works well with other people’s work. It’s not intrusive and pairs well with other styles.
Two full leg sleeves are a rare sight, and these are amazing.
Chest, stomach, and two half sleeves.
Huge bold lines on the neck make it really stand out. The chest and stomach features an extremely interesting optical illusion.

Whatever the design, Tomas Tomas has a great eye for tattooing. He is a must visit artist in London, and anyone for a passion for tribal should put him on their list of artists to be tattooed by.
