The Art of Paper Tattoo

Danish artist Jacob Dahlstrup has created a series of works based off a tattoo machine which incorporates pen on heavy water color paper. The overall affect is something truly extraordinary.

What's the secret to his work? 

Dahlstrup quotes:

"Key to my practice is a process of calculated spontaneity and pre-planned coincidence through which I work primarily with a combination of drawing and installation. through merging of material and context I explore the visual language of nautical folklore, which tells the story of faith, hope, love, and the struggle to get to the non-existing point in the horizon."
