For this series of contemporary wallpapers, FEATHR.com worked with legendary tattoo artist Liam Sparkes. Famed for his Brutal tattoos, the artist runs the famous Old Habits Tattoo Studio in East London. For Sparkes originality is what tattooing is about. He has tattooed a variety of celebrity portraits including Kurt Cobain.
Our Creative Director, Oliver Green, on why we love this design: "Being tattooed myself and knowing the legend of Liam Sparkes it was an honour to work with the man. His style is trademark and known in the skin art circles. We worked to keep his brutal simplicity and bring it the wall - only adding some depth with background colour."
Liam Sparkes was raised on tales of conflict and destruction from grandparents during the war, fuelling his appetite for tattoos, a “destruction and an ornamentation of the body”. Sparkes runs Old Habits Tattoo Studio in East London. He has tattooed a variety of celebrity portraits including Kurt Cobain.
