So I'm looking for tattoo designs for next year when I get my tattoo. My mom and I are planning on each getting a small tattoo on her 50th birthday. I want a small one right behind my ear and as of right now I am thinking about a small design in the art nouveau style. My problem now is that art nouveau is so detailed that Im trying to find something that would work. Luckily I'm not in any rush to get it. Last night I came across this tattoo. Its a full back tattoo in the style of Alphonse Mucha.
Even though I'm not looking for anything near this big I think it is pretty incredible. Mucha was a Czech art nouveau painter and illustrator and is one of my favorite artists. I love the swirls and the patterns characteristic of art nouveau. Some of Mucha's work:
