As I’ve been studying tattoo styles in preparation for starting my training in the art of tattooing, I’m definitely drawn to how well art nouveau lends itself to tattoos. It’s very stylized, elegant, feminine, has defined outlines, and I love a lot of the more popular color schemes. And I love the ornate decorative elements. I had one blank wall in my tattoo room, and I wanted to create something new for it, so I decided to create an art nouveau painting of an artist. Voila!
