This rib work.
If I took my shirt off to a design of this caliber at the end of every day, I’d thank my lucky stars. Staring at all of these amazing designs all day can make one take things for granted. But when it comes to the real world, designs like the one above are rarely ever seen.
As the competition heats up, the urge to be more innovative pushes many artists to new creative heights that benefit all of us in the long run. Now I’m not saying that an artist as creative and as celebrated as Eva Krbdk needs to do anything different than she’s already doing, all I’m saying is that competition is a good thing.
This floral back shoulder design.
When I first saw this design, I thought to myself “that’s an interesting location.” In fact, this design location is quickly becoming one of my favorites, which I hope will also inspire many of you along your own quests to get that perfect tattoo in that perfect location.
This cherry blossom.
Pink cherry blossoms look amazing when in full bloom. But what many people don’t know is that they also look equally amazing once they’ve fallen to the ground. A sea of pink, covering the ground and anything that happens to be under their canopy is a beautiful sight.
Let love rule.
Let it, just let it. That is, unless he’s bad for you and your friends and family aren’t feeling him then you’re going to need to pass. But on a more serious note, if you don’t have any lettering tattoos, you should get one ASAP.
This is a great way to remember your cat without going all super realistic that, let’s face it, probably isn’t an option depending on where you live. Minimalistic tattoo designs are just as impactful as their more complex counterparts. They also tend to age better.
This floral bouquet.
Inner bicep tattoos have long been associated with people who want a tattoo but don’t always want a tattoo. Of course this isn’t always the case but it does have a little truth to it. The inside of the bicep is a highly concealable location which also happens to offer a relatively large canvas to work with. And this floral bouquet suits this location perfectly.
This cool ankle tat.
Symmetrical tattoo designs always rub me the right way. Whether they’re simple or super complex, the visual pleasure that symmetry evokes is something that should always be considered when determining what type of tattoo you will get.
This little elephant.
If there’s anything cuter than a baby elephant sitting on a swing, please let me know. Because as of today, I’ve yet to lay eyes upon anything more adorable. Photorealism is Zlata’s thing. And no one does it better.
This stunning thigh piece.
When it comes to pure talent and raw skill, it could be argued that Polish tattoo artist Pawel Indulski is the best in the world. I do this whole tattoo thing for a living, and when people ask me who I think the best artist in the world is, I usually say Pawel. He’s just that good.
