Some of you might have seen the collaboration work “The Tattooed Poster” of Mathias Nösel, Steffen Baumgartl, Alexander Nagel, Levent Aydin for Munich based The Chaos Crew tattoo studio. We got a chance to speak with illustrator Levent Aydin whose artworks and sketches were among all other tattooed on a real skin poster.

DC: What is the idea behind The Tattooed Poster and how you get involved?

Levent: The Idea was to assemble important events of 2011 into one oversize tattoo to show the skills of the bavarian tattoo artists of Chaos Crew Studio.
The special was that the project was tattooed on real calfskin to achieve the highest grade of realism and authenticity.
Mathias Nösel, the Junior Art Director of Serviceplan saw some of my works on behance and asked me to illustrate for their new project.

DC: What was the biggest challenge in your part of work?
Levent: I think my biggest challenge in my part of work was to illustrate the motives that I had to do in a way that everybody can recognize it in just a few seconds.
Therefore I chose typical attributes of the particular motives like peter falk as columbo with his typical musing pose.

DC: How long did it take you and the whole team to complete it?
Levent: The whole project began in december and ended in may. I had about 8 days to illustrate all the motives that I had to do. I enjoyed to work for such an outstanding project and I am looking forward to hopefully start the next one soon.
