With the Chelsea Flower Show underway, we are surrounded by stunning floral arrangements. Such events are a hive of inspiration for creative people, such as tattoo artists for example, who are inspired to make permanent works of art for themselves and others. So I thought it would be fun to take a look at some beautiful floral tattoos and the artists that create them.
More formally known as Rita Zolotukhina, Rit is a Ukrainian artist whose unique style of tattooing is catching the eyes of many. Rita uses real leaves and flowers to transfer the stencil ink. This includes more detail and realism than any hand drawn stencil could, making Rita’s work truly one of a kind.
Silo is a Korean artist who has become very popular within the last year. Using no black outlines or ink, the designs look as though they have been painted right onto the body. They create soft and elegant looking pieces that anyone would admire.
A native to Crimea, Pis Saro has really made an impact in the tattoo world. With a style very similar to that of a watercolour painting, it is truly beautiful. Any nature lover will find these fascinating.
Toronto-based artist Lindsay has only been tattooing for a short while, but is already producing some really compelling work. Usually only using line work, her designs look like minimalist pencil sketches. Delicate yet striking.
Mini Lau is an artist from Hong Kong with a distinct style. Using mainly pastel colours, she creates small subtle designs. Using light colours and single outlines is a trend that is becoming more and more popular.
All of the above artists show outstanding skill and creativity. Transferring something naturally beautiful and delicate onto the skin is a real challenge. But these outstanding tattoos speak for themselves and are a real credit to the tattoo world.
