Beijing-based tattoo artist Franky Yang creates ethereal body art inspired by traditional Chinese paintings. Like windows into another world, she encases each of her exquisite illustrations inside long, thin rectangles, which span the arms, legs, and torsos of her clients. Within these geometric shapes are detailed visions of rocky mountain sides, lush forests and shimmering seascapes.
Yang uses the constraints of a rectangular panel to frame his works in an attractive manner. While the majority of landscapes are confined within these geometric shapes, the artist will sublimate the drawing by allowing a few elements to “free themselves” from the invisible contours. From soaring cranes to scarlet suns to blossoming tree branches, these subtle touches add a special energy to otherwise encapsulated pieces. Some of his more ambitious body art includes several environmental elements that shake up the frame of the tattoo, such as an orca leaping out of the ocean with rushing waves splashing out of bounds.
You can purchase temporary tattoos through Yang’s online store. Follow the artist on Instagram to be aware of his latest creations.
