The Beautifully Minimalist Tattoos of Axel Ejsmont

Following the rule of “Less is More,” Axel Ejsmont tattoos wildlife designs that are stripped down to the essential forms through lines and dots. Her work is soothingly simple to the eye but well-thought-out in terms of shapes and composition—some of it influenced from Persian rugs and Indian tribal patterns. Using a limited color palette for tattoos, she goes a bit further in coloring her personal drawings and editorial illustrations for German print publications.
