They are one of the most elegant accessory of the world and they are as exquisite in ink: fan tattoos. Sophisticated and amazing tattoos!

For centuries, fan were used by women and men to refresh themselves and add a refined touch to their attire. In Asia, paper fans were decorated with gorgeous pieces of art, and used either as a fashion accessory or as a martial art weapon. Spanish fans are made of fabric, with many fancy details such as lace, feathers and embroidery. Women used them for dancing and to hide and reveal their beautiful faces to their potential lovers. Object of seduction, it is associated with sensuality and mystery. Fan tattoos have kept this goal and luxury of details. They often feature an elegant hand, sometimes tattooed, and the fan itself can be replaced by a landscape, a portrait or another intricate design. They are all very sophisticated and amazing, so if you have a weakness for fancy things, you will adore these refreshing fan tattoos...
