Derek Noble is an American tattoo artist and painter currently working at Dark Age Tattoo in Seattle, WA. Derek has been tattooing for over 10 years now and he has developed a very unique style. Derek Noble's style is not quite traditional even if colours reminds us of Japanese traditional works. It's darker and creepier and it often features zombified geishas, wolves, skulls and darker colours. It's similar to traditional Japanese artwork also for the backgrounds he uses in his works. The foundation is traditional, but Derek's style develops from there and becomes something entirely different.
You can find Derek on his portfolio website.
