Beautiful Live Leaf Tattoos By Rit Kit
“I’m a nature lover, so most of my sketches are related to flora,” Ukrainian tattooer Rit Kit explains. “But the more I drew, the more I wanted something fresh and native, to feel the plants without any steps in between.”
Searching for a more organic design process, she started dipping live leaves in tattoo stencil ink, pressing them directly on her customers’ bodies.
“We don’t know the definitive look when we start, just the colors, the mood and basic shape. It’s my favorite way to make tattoos, and I think the most natural. They’re like botanical fingerprints on the bodies of other brave nature lovers.”
