With Zihee Tattoo‘s dainty ink creations, you can adorn your skin with elegant illustrations featuring pretty pops of color. Based in Korea, the artist’s imaginative and delicate tattoos simultaneously convey her spectacular skill, simple style, and love of the natural world.
Zihee’s enchanting pieces range in subject matter, although floral motifs appear to be her most popular and revisited muse. She also dabbles in animal illustrations, as well as stylized hearts, reimagined anatomical drawings, surreal portraits, and not-so-spooky spiders. In addition to this eclectic collection of iconography, her inked drawings also vary in size and even style.
While many of her wondrous works—including wrist, forearm, and even ear ornamentation—are remarkably tiny, others—like her back pieces—are impressively large. Similarly, some closely resemble simple line drawings, while others incorporate blocks of color and meticulous shading. Whether big, small, simple, or detailed, each design by Zihee Tattoos showcases the artist’s superb taste and expert approach to the body art form.
Unsurprisingly, each inventive idea begins as a painted sketch, which Zihee then meticulously reproduces on her client’s skin. Almost as if by magic, she is able to retain the painterly sensibility, perfectly mixed pigments, and exquisite lines of each preliminary plan. Thus, ensuring each and every piece is its own one-of-a-kind work of art.
