Minimalist Tattoos by Lee Stewart Mimic the Graceful Flow of Ink

Tattoo by Lee Stewart

Lee Stewart mimics the graceful, flowing lines of a brushstroke in her minimalist body art. Riding a fine line between tattoos and Japanese sumi-ink paintings, she conveys elegant, sweeping marks in seemingly one motion. At times, this abstract imagery celebrates a love of painting, while in other instances, the powerful strokes define animals, birds, and flowers. No matter the design, the tattoos have a bold presence without feeling overworked or overly complicated.
