Rage and Fury Tattoo Shirt by Filip Leu

Within tattoo’s most famous family, known as The Leu Family Iron in Switzerland, stands second-generation phenom Filip Leu. Known for his strength in freehand tattooing (instead of using stencils), and hand-ground mortar and pestle dyes, Filip Leu is probably sought after by more other tattooists than anyone else. Through his nomadic upbringing, he began tattooing under the instruction of his father, Felix, at the ripe age of 16. He later learned from tattooists in many countries, including India, Japan, Africa, and beyond. Though his father closely instructed him, Filip ventured onward to adopt his own distinctive style, which has earned him his celebrity status in the tattoo world.
