After spending over 15 years as a tattoo artist, Jon Mesa knows which tattoos are going to last and which ones are going to end up looking like an infected birthmark after a couple of years. Micro color realism is the latest trend in tattooing. Artists are still trying to pack in tons of detail despite using only a tiny section of their client’s body and it drives Mesa insane. We sat down with the veteran tattooer to discuss not only the micro tattoos that drive him nuts but also the science behind why he’s convinced they will age poorly.
