You'll Love How This Tattoo Artist Blends Dark Art And Comic Books

Cutty Bage is a tattoo artist based in North Carolina with a taste for comic books and dark art. By combining the two, Bage creates her own style that could be described as goth comic book art.

Bage mostly designs portrait pieces. She prefers to come up with illustrations of people or animals. She feels they're the most intriguing subjects because "you always wonder what they’re thinking, where they’ve been."

Her most popular portraits include Wednesday Addams, Agent Cooper, and Edgar Allen Poe. And, of course, plenty of pet memorial pieces.

"I’m a huge comic art fan, I think I pretty much learned how to draw by studying Jack Kirby," she says of her inspiration. I also started out in art doing illustrations for t-shirts, so everything had to be screen-print ready, stark black line work with no real smooth shading."

But why the dark style?

"I love horror stories and mysteries," she says. "I guess, to me, there’s a lot more mystery in the dark than in the light, you feel things much more deeply when you don’t know what’s around the corner or what’s happening under the surface."
