Ivana Belakova Amanda Wachob and Ondrash are 3 or the most inspiring tattoo artists creating water-colour inspired tattoos. Vibrant color, brush strokes, ink drips and dynamic art feed into each of the designs creating body art, not just a tattoo. Watercolor painting, or aquarelle, is a method of painting where the pigment is suspended in water an applied to the canvas. This results in a distinct look to the finished canvas. A tattoo artist taking on the challenge of recreating the fluidity of a water-colour should be familiar to the techniques unique to the art form such as salt texturing, back runs and diffusions.
