Ellemental Tattoos is the title of a Berlin-based tattoo artist who is making waves on social media with her stunning blackwork tattoos. Combining traditional Mehndi patterns with paisleys and contemporary mandalas, she transforms portions of the body into ornamental armor. Many of her pieces are large, spanning the entirety of her clients’ backs. She even turns tricky areas such as kneecaps into stunning patterns, using the anatomy of the joint to accentuate the three-dimensionality of the design. With her mastery of linework and her clear dedication to crafting unique patterns for each individual body, she is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
