Abstract Tattoos That Meander the Body by Chisato Chavo

Chisato Chavo creates abstract drawings on skin. The Japanese tattooer sketches minimalist scenes that meander across the body, with tiny characters and geometric shapes forming incomplete yet intriguing composition. Chavo is inspired by a myriad of artistic movements—Cubism and Dadaism make an appearance—as well as cartoons and comics.

The subtle details are what makes Chavo’s tattoos special. A light touch allows her to conceal small lines and dots, so that they’re only visible upon a careful second glance.
