Intricate Black & White Snake Tattoos By Mirko Sata

Posted on Tattoo 110

Did you notice that snakes are one of the most dominant animals when it comes to symbolism in folklore? From religious motifs and drug store signs to awesome tattoos, to which Milan-based tattoo artist Mirko Sata adds his signature spin.

Intricate snake tattoos are Mirko’s speciality, and he’s at his best when he works only with black and white ink while creating these stylized serpentines. The palette made of two opposing colors makes the contrast even more eye-catching while also giving it a unique feel.
