Artist Turns Quirky Line Drawings into Funny Tattoo Illustrations

Simple Tattoos Funny Tattoos Line Drawings Sean from Texas

Reminiscent of line drawings, the quirky creations of Sean Williams (better known as Sean from Texas) showcase the tattoo artist's distinctively simplistic approach to body art. Each inked illustration features comical and clever subject matter, conveying the unexpectedly unlimited possibilities of such simple tattoos.

In his work, Sean from Texas shows a tendency toward outlandish and eccentric characters. Silly cats and stylized dogs repeatedly appear in his designs, as well as outspoken animated aliens and even a seemingly lonely ghost. Often, he sets these peculiar figures in 2 settings—outer space and scenery that is characteristically Texan—adding to the zany quality of his funny tattoos. Some of his silliest designs include scenes depicting domestic pets floating through galaxies, an extraterrestrial reading to his houseplants, and a personified cactus riding a bicycle. Additionally, sometimes his pieces explore darker themes, proving his versatility as a tattooist.

In addition to his recognizable subject matter, the artist's work is also characterized by his use of thin, monochromatic outlines. While some of his portrayals feature heavily shaded black backgrounds, most of them are composed only of lines and bold yet delicately rendered details. With this line drawing-like approach, Sean from Texas shows that simple tattoos can be full of quirky and carefree character, too.

The simple tattoos by Sean from Texas present the artist's eccentric sense of humor and knack for line drawings.
