Spring is already knocking on all the doors, although not very willingly, and summer is just around the corner. So, there comes a wonderful time of flowers and bright colors. And those who do not want to wait for spring, we offer to keep their favorite flowers forever – in the form of a tattoo.
Floral designs may be a perpetually popular request in tattoo studios across the globe, but that doesn’t mean that all botanical body art is alike. As evident in this illustrated list of some of the best floral tattoo artists, flower-y depictions come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and styles.
We present to you the works of tattoo artists with an excellent design and technique of execution.
Selection of work by some of the best floral tattoo artists below:
Though she dabbles in all sorts of subject matter, Seoul-based artist Zihee Tattoo specializes in flower-inspired ink. Characterized by bright blocks of color, a stylized aesthetic, and a lack of black lines, Zihee’s pieces are both elegant and eye-catching.
Evocative of the fanciful fluidity of watercolor paintings, Crimean artist Pis Saro designs and creates delicate flower tattoos. Each of her whimsical works of art features softly blended colors inspired by real-life nature. “The mood of my art changes with the seasons,” Saro told Illusion Magazine. ”I grow flowers and watch them attentively, looking at each fractal detail in petals and leaves. They’re not as simple as they seem!”
Like many tattooists, Kiev-based Vlada Shevchenko has a penchant for flowers. Unlike most floral tattoo artists, however, Shevchenko works exclusively in black ink. The stark outlines and bold shading evident in each piece are offset by intricate details that add a delicate touch to the otherwise strong designs.
