The geometric god, best known as Nissaco, is a tattoo artist from Osaka whose combination of heavy blackwork, intricate dot-work, geometric patterns and traditional Japanese iconography is simply breathtaking. “Much of my work is based on the Japanese style,” Nissaco says to Tattoo Life. “And although I don’t pay that much attention to my roots or to certain rules, I feel that certain ideas which come to me spontaneously are nonetheless influenced by my culture. In any case, what matters most to me is to be free and to always do interesting pieces.”
