TATTOO ARTIST - PETE PAV
Pete has been a tattoo artist for over 10 years. His style is based around clean and simple traditional tattoos, as well as dot work and black work. His influences include the old tattooers from the 1920's through to the 1940's such as Percy Waters and Fred Marquand. Lately though, he's been heavily inspired by 70's tattoo flash from the likes of Picture Machine and JD Crowe.

This tattoo memorabilia is all on display at Man's Ruin Tattoo in St Kilda.
