Modern Tattoos Designed from Peculiar Japanese Woodblock Prints


A tattoo artist named Maxime Gautron, who is from Toulouse, designs special cartoon-style tattoos based on old Japanese woodblock prints. However, he designs them with a more modern approach. These tattoos that he inks are a mixture of the historical essence of the Japanese woodblock prints and the latest tattoo trends that are out there. They are similar to the traditional “pictures of the floating world” Japanese woodblocks, which is translated to “Ukiyo-e” in Japan. These designs have varying colors that are vibrant and rich and are composed in conventional ways while still symbolizing Japanese topics.

Maxime uses this art form to draw inspiration for many of his other tattoos. He even integrates pop culture references into these Japanese-style tattoos such as The Simpsons, UFOs, and dinosaurs. He is basically reimagining these tattoos and breathing new life into them for the modern age. His works look so much like real Japanese art that they have gained popularity on the internet. Some of his designs include a snake made out of donuts and a huge field filled with dinosaurs. These are truly one of a kind tattoos that you won’t find anywhere else.
