Crimean artist Pis Saro takes inspiration from her travels and innate fascination with nature to create her soft and dreamlike tattoo designs. “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! I like to study plants, animals and birds of different countries, too, always searching for new ideas.” This year alone, the traveling tattooist has visited Turkey, Lebanon, Germany, Holland, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland—always opting for natural reserves over cluttered cities. “In nature,” says Saro, “everything is perfect.”
Saro's sense of curiosity and wonder allows her to create nature-inspired tattoos, for both men and women. The tattooist uses her Instagram and Facebook accounts to share images of clients modeling their new body art—including an effervescent seahorse caught mid-swim on the thigh, technicolor tulips snaking up the spine, and pastel petals blooming on the tender skin of the wrist. Each design is an interplay between the elements of the environment and the geometric creativity of Saro's imagination. The result is a new kind of nature—one that can only be captured on human skin.
