Hanaro Shinko, German based tattoo artist.
His work sits under the underserving description of, blackwork tattoo design, however this would only give you a rudimentary understanding of the master, Han. A lot of the imagery he uses, has a birth in traditional style and will often give the nod to tribalism tattoo style, with his touch of solid blacks and simplistic lines.
Our collaboration with Han Shinko, was a 12 piece collection in 2017/18. Selling one design a month, for that month only.
His artwork made for some amazing signet designs, in which we made his bold details really pronounced through deep engraving and blackened areas. The engraving process and the mirror finish of sterling silver can often mean the design will struggle to translate well if the artwork is highly detailed with shading and colouring. However with Hanaro, the simple, bold lines provided the ideal base for signet designs.
