Art Nouveau (where I'm aiming my tattoo work)

Alphonse Mucha is my favorite artist and biggest inspiration. I want to push my tattoo work in this direction, and this board is here to help explain it. Bold lines, flat colors, elegance, sassy curves, decorative curves, decorative framework, earthy colors. I wrote something for most of these, explaining what parts I love. Hopefully its a direction you want too.

Mucha pen and ink. This shape and coloring and framework would work well on an arm or leg, maybe even on the ribs.

Mucha, sketch, I love the flow and I love the background flow. The bold lines, the colors. Lets do a tattoo like this!

I did not do this tattoo. Its a decent example of Mucha's style zoomed in and simplified. I kind of wish it had thicker lines. It has great flow though, I like the placement.

I did not do this tattoo. This is a Mucha piece, adapted for a tattoo. Beautiful, but it is more detailed than I want to aim for.

I did not do this tattoo, but its a good fit and the size I would do a mucha piece. I'll gladly tattoo something similar for you.

I did not do this tattoo. This one got a little more realistic, but definitely has enough art nouveau styling to make it a fun piece
