Today we are bringing it back to our NYC stomping grounds with the talented Chuck Donoghue (AKA Chuck D). Chuck D splits his time between two world class shops, one being an obvious favorite of ours Kings Avenue in the Lower East Side, as well as the Brooklyn based Greenpoint Tattoo Co.
The crew at Greenpoint and their valiant leader John Reardon pride themselves on their original designs of classic style tattoos, a perfectly sensible home for Chuck D to showcase his east coast influenced traditional tattoos that emanate power through his dark heavy line strokes and solid color that are designed with brilliance and simplicity. Chuck’s tattoos have a mean and tough look to them, which I personally think gives real character to his work. I also love how his style comes through in his Japanese inspired pieces which is not just a replica of Japanese masters like Horiyoshi III or Filip Leu. This is some real tattooing at it’s finest!
