Tattoos are so much more than marks of rebellion these days. Tattoo artists are getting better every day and living up to their "artist" title. There are some men and women out there who are tattooing works of art of on people's bodies, and the latest tattoo artist to make a hit online with tattoo lovers is Chen Jie. This talented artist is doing something no tattoo artist has done up to now. It's like Jie is painting watercolor art on people's bodies, rather than tattooing them.
Just look at one example of this guy's work. Look at the detail of the fish. Their tails look like they have been painted with a delicate brush and not with a needle. Jie's works aren't ordinary tattoos. These are watercolor tattoos that help make the pieces look like actual pieces of art.
Here's another ostensibly simple tattoo. The way the black was colored in is incredible. It's so easy to believe that this is the work of watercolor paint. Moreover, that cat looks like it could easily be featured in a painting somewhere. Sure, cat tattoos have been done before. This is nothing new but the way it has been tattooed is certainly different and more beautiful.
Here's another pretty tattoo for you. Just look at these leaves painted on this woman's back. This watercolor tattoo looks so delicate and feminine. That black color though...it gives it just the right amount of edge.
