Earlier this year, Daniel Meyer moved his business from Germany to join Los Angeles’ thriving tattoo scene, and unsurprising to many, he’s killing it. Within days of setting up an independent shop, he found himself booked three months out, 7 days a week. In Germany, he was sought out by clients all over the world, most of which traveled across the globe to his sleepy little town of Kassel.

‘It’s his incredible balance of the natural and geometric that seems to freeze people in awe. Images of moths, skulls, and celestial bodies are paired with geometric shapes, each existing independently of the other while providing the perfect counterbalance and compliment.’ LA Times.¬†“Since my earliest drawings, I’ve always been attached to natural objects and textures,” he claims. But it wasn’t until college when he took a class on technical drawing that his now signature style came about. “It all came together, the high contrast between natural structures and the static appearance of geometric figures.”

For us, the magic is in his flawless technique and embodiment of “dark naturalism”, balancing boldly on the precipice of¬†tasteful Darwinian-esque natural oddity and the ancient occult without dipping into the cheap grotesque. If you have the luck to secure a spot with Daniel, consider us jealous – he truly is a master.
