35 Alphonse Mucha Inspired Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Czech artist Alphons Maria Mucha (also Alphonse Mucha) has created one of the most important art movement of the early 20th century.

Inspiring painting, design and also architecture called the Art Nouveau (from French language 'new art'). His distinctive style, originally used for magazines and advertising illustrations, is also a popular reference for tattoo designs because of both its simplicity and ornamental details. The central element of each design is a beautiful young woman, with extraordinary hair, romantic dress and of course, a huge amount of flowers and natural elements. The colors, warm and elegant, are often very vivid and reminding of luxury and luminous stained glasses, associated with the old Paris and its elegant cabaret ladies. Very feminine of course, but also coveted by men, they are making intricate and colorful tattoos, very pleasing for the eyes. Copying art is never a bad idea for some successful ink, but of course, find a tattooist who is also an artist herself or himself!
Mucha's art has been copied many times and influenced many artists and art lovers, and many of them have got tattoos inspired by his masterpieces. If you like this artist or if his style appeals to you, go check his work for inspiration or take a look to what those 35 art connoisseurs have chosen for their Alphonse Mucha inspired tattoos.
