Sea creature print patterns

Helmut Lang's SS13 collection features the collaborative work of Michael and Nicole Colovos from the label, their designer Pascale Gueracague and tattoo artist Thomas Hooper. As you may be able to tell, Thomas takes a lot of his inspiration from the German biologist Ernst Haeckel and his illustrations of animals an sea creatures.

Thomas Hooper is originally from Hastings and now has a tattoo studio in Brooklyn NY. There is a great interview on site where he talks about growing up in the UK, his inspirations and tattooing as an artform.
