Anyone who's observed alt-R&B singer/songwriter Bazzi's arms will know he's got a series of incredibly intricate black-and-grey ink. They're artful, detailed and even creep out onto his left hand in a beautiful cross symbol made up of words.
In this episode of Skin Deep, Cool Accidents' new video series about tattoos, Bazzi explains the meaning behind the three Arabic phrases on his arm, the dove, the words on his left hand and his ornate Vitruvian Man tattoo, famously sketched by Leonardo Da Vinci centuries ago.
"For me, I need to be very clear-headed to get [a tattoo]. I got all of these done within a year, I was very definitive in what I wanted," he tells us.
We've also called on Aussie up-and-comers JXN and Jack Gray, as well as 88rising member AUGUST 08 for other episodes of Skin Deep - make sure you check them all out on Cool Accidents' YouTube!
