Forest-Inspired Tattoos and Drawings by Katarzyna Krutak

Katarzyna Krutak is an illustrator and tattoo artist who says she’s “inspired by the smell of the forest.” Her images are a smattering of approaches, with one figure containing repeat patterns, energetic scribbles, and intricate dotwork. The flattened aesthetic has a folk art look and feel, as if these figures were plucked from a storybook. And indeed, some of her pieces are inspired directly from tales like “Little Red Riding Hood.”

Although Krutak’s portfolio is half drawing and half body art, she maintains a station at Voice of Ink in Wroclaw, Poland.
