As the art of tattooing has become more widespread, techniques have become more sophisticated, allowing artists to develop new skills and push the boundaries of what ink is expected to look like. Now body art is seemingly limitless – it can be anything from gorgeously vibrant, painterly to intricate or photorealistic. There is a new generation of tattoo artists who create state-of-the-art designs for every new client with as much freedom as a painter. It’s time to shine the light on Zlata Kolomoyskaya, also known as Goldy Z, one of the top ink masters tattooing today.

Turning away from bold outlines and heavy saturated colors, Zlata Kolomoyskaya, better known online as @goldy_z, proves that ink does not need to be polychromatic to be eye-catching.

Her photo-realistic designs have extraordinary amounts of detail to the point that they appear to be printed on the skin. Subtle yet impressive, Zlata’s black & grey tattoos range from pop culture personalities to natural landscapes, with flashes of brilliance in her use of lines.
