What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Machine Dreams




Somewhere between scientific diagrams and heartbreaking charcoal sketches, these fascinating, abstract tattoos by artist Mowgli are instantly recognizable. They look to me like they could be the dreams of machines or secret diagrams by an alien society. I feel like their otherness is really going to haunt me (in a good way).

“Nothing should make sense. You should break the rules and break the norms and surpass expectation.”

Mowgli is currently working out of the Through My Third Eye studio in London, and you can follow him on his Instagram and Facebook.

  3. Beautiful work. London is very lucky to have him. I wonder if they are one of a kind or does he do the same on more people. Hal

  4. The artwork is amazing and would be impressive enough if done on paper. The fact the illustrations are so precise and detailed while being drawn on skin is even more impressive.

  5. I really like the one that has a big amount of red in it…It kind of reminds me of the comic art that Jim Steranko did a long time ago, with a more modern groove.

    You’ve shown us a lot of great tattoo art on these pages….and I know you were thinking of getting one. Is finding all these examples helping or making the choice harder?
