Colorful Tattoos Use Vibrant Pops of Color to Merge the Excitement of Nature and Art

A post shared by Zihee_tattoo (@zihee_tattoo) on

Seoul-based artist Zihee Tattoo adorns the skin with colorful illustrations that pay homage to nature and fine art. From pretty florals to classic paintings, each color tattoo resembles soft botanical illustrations and delicate watercolor paintings on skin. Although Zihee’s range of subject matter may be traditional, she still manages to achieve her distinct contemporary style by merging her painterly depictions with graphic shapes and a vibrant color palette.

Zihee’s eclectic portfolio features miniature interpretations of famous paintings such as Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss and Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, delicately inked with incredible detail and framed within minimalist, geometric forms. Other pieces include colorful flower tattoos and vibrant creatures that pop from the wearer’s skin. One revisited motif is a multicolored snake that curls around the ankles, wrists, and shoulders of the wearers. However, rather than feature lifelike scales, the mythical creature is often adorned with floral patterns.

You can see more colorful designs and book a session with Zihee on Instagram.
