Don’t be misled by his tough guy image and tattoo-covered body, Neil Mota’s real strength lies in his photos. Over the course of his young career, plenty of celebrities have already posed for him: Patti Smith, Amber Rose, Carine Roitfeld for Vogue, Michael Roberts for Vanity Fair, Philippe Starck and Georges St-Pierre.

The list of recognizable names goes on and on, just like the numerous awards he’s received for his incredible work. He regularly publishes fashion editorials in prestigious ELLE magazine, and he’s currently putting together a book that showcases inked people from all over the world.

No kidding, this man’s work will leave its mark on you.
