Colorful Flower Tattoos That Look Like Watercolor Paintings

Published 8 years ago

Prepare your eyes for the extraordinary tattoo artist from South Korea – Silo. You’ll be hard-pressed to find resemblances to the classic black ink tattoos as he uses soft colors to turn his tattoos into watercolor paintings.

Every design is unique as they are inspired by the stories of his clients:

There are lots of stories around these tattoos. People tell me what and why they want and I turn their stories into designs. I put my heart even into the smallest tattoos,” Silo said to Bored Panda.

Can’t get enough of watercolor tattoos? You’re in luck! Check out this Czech artist who does only one tattoo a day.
