INKSTAGRAM #2: Where in Malaysia to Get Humorous Stick-and-Poke, Dot Work, and Watercolour Pieces

Here’s what we like about the artists featured in this week’s Inkstagram compilation; they have a knack for creating humorous pieces in a visually-pleasing manner as seen with Arth Akal’s ‘Wanita Gila’ and ‘Bite Me’ pieces and Kevin Elijah Tan’s ‘Get Fucked’ stick-and-poke tattoo. Aside from that, we like how they give simple pieces an extra element or two to give them character (as seen on Benji Tong’s skull tattoos and Hishiko’s portrait of a young girl), plus, they’re good with dot-work and watercolour technique. Check out their work below:
