The Minimalist Tattoos Of Lee Stewart Look Like Paint Brush Strokes
Simple straight lines, geometric shapes and a few nature-inspired designs are like a breath of fresh air in the typically bold world of tattoos. One of the artists who chose a minimalist approach on tattoos, reinforcing the statement that less is more is Lee Stewart.
Lee Stewart is a Berlin-based tattoo artist who scores big on the originality chapter. She specializes in beautiful brushstroke style tattoos characterized in both light and heavy strokes.
Inspired by the Rorschach inkblot test and Japanese sumi-ink paintings, she conveys elegant, sweeping marks in seemingly one motion. This original style requires highly developed technical skills so that tattoos look genuinely painted with a brush rather than a buzzing machine.
Lee’s creative approach on body art has many interesting prospects: no need to necessarily stick to reality, she can play with her imagination and make absolutely everything in terms of representation (no or few shapes). Some of her brushstroke tattoo designs are completely abstract while others join to form graceful birds, cats, and flowers. No matter the design, the tattoos have a bold presence without feeling overworked or overly complicated.
Lee Stewart’s minimalist tattoos with brush stroke effects masterfully mimic the graceful flow of ink and the result is spectacular: true works of art on skin, as you can see in the image gallery below.
