For over 30 years, French artist Vincent Jeannerot has been capturing the splendid diversity of plants with his botanical watercolors. Now, in collaboration with Tattly, Jeannerot has creatively turned a selection of his charming paintings of herbs into fresh and fragrant body art.
The dainty and delicate collection of herb-scented temporary tattoos features sprigs of flavorful plants like parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Namely rendered in shades of green with pops of pale purples and light blues, the botanical illustrations showcase the often overlooked appeal of herbs. Small and soft, the herb-scented temporary tattoos are a perfect way for both nature lovers and culinary enthusiasts to adorn their skin—without the commitment and with an appealing aroma!
Fortunately, the stunning series of temporary tattoos retains the impressive attention to detail and exquisite aesthetic of Jeannerot’s original drawings. Though the artist also dabbles in depictions of more traditionally beautiful flora, his portrayals of herbs are just as aesthetically alluring. Whether a conventionally-attractive blooming rose or a more subtle sage stem, his illustrations showcase the “sensibility and emotion he feels when he paints the tiny details or a delicate shadow.”
Fittingly, Tattly’s herb tattoos are printed with vegetable-based ink. Each non-toxic tattoo last about 2-3 days, and is guaranteed to be “pleasing to the eyes and nose!”
