The True Beauty Of Flowers: The Tattoos Of Pete Zebley

Pete Zebley's tattoo style conveys the sheer beauty of one of the most common tattoo symbols... the flower.

We see flower tattoos created in many different ways. Watercolour, neo-traditional, abstract... the sky's the limit, and often tattoo artists are as inventive and original as possible.

Pete Zebley's tattoos, however, stay true to the form, colour and structure of flowers. His photo-realistic style allows his flower tattoos to perfectly capture the unmitigated natural beauty of flowers. 

This tattoo art communicates the flower as a short-lived allurement that is both simple and pure. Soft shading, pastel colours, and the illusion of depth and movement all make these flower tattoos... well, just perfect.

Based in Philadelphia, Pete's books are currently closed but you can follow him on Instagram.
