Enchanting and Whimsical Animals That'll Make You Wish You Lived in Whatever Forest They Came From

Remember when you were a kid, and all you ever wanted to do was pour over the pages of classic children’s books like The Velveteen Rabbit, Where The Wild Things Are, and Winnie The Pooh? Remember how all you ever wished for was for those characters to magically come alive, and jump out of the book, or maybe you could somehow live in the book with them so that the story never had to end? Ah, nostalgia.

If tattoo artist Lily Anchor were to ever illustrate a children’s book, we would want to live in it. Creating adorable depictions of flora and fauna, Anchor’s work is both simple and the absolute cutest thing we’ve ever seen. Using elements of pointillism, line work, and a distinctly illustrative trait that allows them a childlike sense of wonder and innocence, her tattoos are both beautiful and nostalgic. Creating bats, bunnies, hedgehogs, and field mice, her animals are true characters, all delicate, enchanting, and a tad bit whimsical.
