Neoclassical Tattoo Flash

Stefano Boetti

Available May 2022


A new set of striking, elegant flash from Stizzo, owner of Best of Times Tattoo, who continues his dedication to the tradition and craft of tattooing. Highly detailed, thoughtfully colored and shaded, Stizzo’s flash is hand drawn and painted, finding its inspiration from past artists and Italy’s rich artistic history. The classic symbols of skulls, roses, snakes, daggers, ships, eagles, and more are reinterpreted through a modern master’s lens—while time and space morphs, these icons remain central to how we represent ourselves. Inspiration for artists as well as enthusiasts, this shows the possibility of respecting and maintaining tradition while growing and challenging yourself as an artist. Includes a section of black-and-white flash, showing how the traditional style can be carried out without color.

Born in Milan in the spring of 1978, Stizzo entered the world of tattoos at the end of the 1990s. After learning tattoo techniques and secrets from a master who specialized in tribal and Marquesian tattoos, Stizzo improved his skills, applying all that he learned to the traditional style. After working for many tattoo shops in Milan, Stizzo decided in 2009 to open his own shop, Best of Times Tattoo, known for classic, traditional tattoos.
