This Korean Tattooist’s Delicate Tattoos Will Make You Want To Get Inked ASAP

His tattoos are too beautiful for this world.

In South Korea, tattoos are still considered taboo, but ink artists like Hongdam (IG: @hongdamstudio) are helping to change that. His beautiful, minimalistic tattoos aren’t usually what most people think of when they picture a traditional tattoo. Instead of bold, black outlines and solid colours, Hongdam uses pen-like strokes and watercolour techniques to turn his clients into living works of art. Here are just some of his many gorgeous designs.
