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 movementsâ€”Cubism and Dadaism make an appearanceâ€”as well as cartoons and comics.
The subtle details are what makes Chavoâ€™s tattoos special. A light touch allows her to conceal small lines and dots, so that theyâ€™re only visible upon a careful second glance.
