Art that adorns the flesh…

Meet Bruce Kaplan!

October 4th, 2010 by


That is exactly the first thing that entered my mind when I first saw Bruce Kaplan’s work.  Sure, he also does black and grey work and sure, lots of tattooists use colour, but Kaplan’s use of colour provides such an impact that his work instantly strikes you.  It’s not as if Kaplan simply relies on reeling people in with a vibrant use of colour and not much else.  Oh no, my friends, Bruce has got it all goin’ on.  His art is tight – there’s no sloppy lines or sub-par renderings here.  Not even close.  Bruce Kaplan gets your attention and keeps it because his work is a treat to look at.  I can only imagine being lucky enough to actually wear it.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of information about Bruce to pass on to you.  He’s the owner of Lark Tattoo in Albany, New York and that’s really all that I can tell you.  His bio is coming soon to his website and until then, I guess you’ll just have to wait to find out more about the mysterious Mr. Kaplan.  Really though, there are enough first rate photos of Bruce’s work at his website to keep anyone busy.  And if for some reason that isn’t enough for you, why not make an appointment to get tattooed by him?  That way you’ll get a sweet tattoo and plenty of time to ask the guy whatever you want.

As far as I’m concerned, Bruce Kaplan is one of the best tattooists that I’ve stumbled upon in a long time.  So Bruce, if you’re out there and happen to be reading this, don’t be shy!  Do whatever you can to get your work out there to the public because you deserve the recognition.  Then again, judging by the way that you tattoo, it won’t be long before you’re getting more attention than you can handle (if you aren’t already – which something tells me you probably are).
