Nudy Tattooer's Blackwork Crescent Moons and Sad Girls

South Korean tattooer Nudy beautifully illustrates crescent moons and sad girls in minimalist blackwork tattoos with bold outlines.

South Korea's Reindeer Ink houses some of the finest tattooers in Hongdae, Seoul. With names like fine line tattoo artists, Zihwa, Goyo, Zihae, and more, Reindeer Ink is one rising power house in the fast-growing tattoo scene of South Korea.

Here's one more tattoo artist to add to the list: Nudy. Originally based in Yangsan, Nudy moved to Seoul to pursue a career in tattooing and ended up at Reindeer Ink in Hongdae.

Nudy sets himself apart from the fine line blackwork the darlings of Reindeer Ink are known for with bolder lines and a more minimalist approach to designs. He makes use of negative space and neat linework to accentuate his muted yet soulful designs.

Most of Nudy's works are of melancholic women and crescent moons — both of which are the most prevalent elements in his tattoos. While crescent moons and sad girls stand well off on their own (and make such a good album title, by the way), a combination of both makes for such lovely and desolate tattoos.

Aside from crescent moons and sad girls (I realized this would make a good poem title, as well), Nudy also likes to play around with roses, cosmic elements, cacti, and a whole lot of portraits of even sadder girls.
