Aro Tattoo in Korea is the home of an incredible artist named Silo. She is well known because she inks very unique tattoos that resemble watercolor paintings. Typically, tattoo artists use a lot of heavy black lines to clearly define their shapes, but Silo has a different technique and style that allows her work to flow together and blend with her client’s skin.
Silo’s work is inspired by nature and animals. These flowers look like they’re straight out of a fairytale book.
Instead of giving her tattoos a clear and definite end, Silo lets the ink fade away.
When she does use lines, they’re purposeful, like this upside down triangle. It feels as though the flower is bursting out of the triangle’s harsh lines and angles.
If you want something a little more subtle, Silo can ink the smallest, most detailed lavender you’ve ever seen.
This tiny flower might not be the most noticeable tattoo, but the beauty of nature will always be with you wherever you go.
She’s also great with animals. Here, she added a snowflake pattern to two whales that gives them an extra wow factor.
Want a portrait of your favorite furry friend? Silo’s got you covered. If this one looks darker than the other work you’ve seen, that’s because it was used to cover up a different tattoo. We may never know what regretful ink is hidden under that cat…
There might be five times the cats in this tattoo, but thankfully it doesn’t cost five times as much.
This client’s nail polish perfectly matches her tattoo.
Both men and women love Silo’s work. This couple got matching tattoos, one in color and the other in black.
Silo’s tattoos are bursting with life. We’ve never seen anything quite like them before, and we hope to see more of them around in the future. Head on over to her Instagram for more examples of these lovely tattoos.
