Aureus Arts is a collective of master carvers who incorporate tattoo designs into incredible works of art made from 100% cruelty-free bone.

After Jonathan Simeonides traveled through Indonesia and witnessed the incredible skills of the Balinese Master Artisan Carvers and Artists he formed his own collective of artists to spread their vision. These Balinese artists have decades of experience in the practice and art of carving to create breathtaking unique pieces. The artists at Aureus Arts are doing the same: using 100% recycled organic bone. They can create beautiful ornate pieces from animal skulls that were found or donated cruelty-free after the natural death of the animal.

Many of their pieces incorporate elements of tattoo concepts using patterns like filigree that are often seen in black and grey tattoos, oriental design such as powerful dragons and also floral and mandala designs. They also make pieces in the human skull form but don't worry those ones aren't real! Those are made from recycled wood and polyester. Check out their website to see what awesome designs they can make it might inspire your next tattoo design if you'd like incorporate some ornate filigree into it. Or just decorate your home with some truly unique art pieces.
