You'll never have to worry about getting a cliché tattoo if you visit Naomi Chi.
The Vancouver-based tattoo artist creates unique designs that beautifully resemble pencil drawings. Her "sketch tattoos" show rough lines and shapes artists use to help compose their work, but would likely be removed in the final product. They really look straight out of a sketch book.
Chi says she's inspired by animation, and tries to capture movement in her tattoo designs.
"I also strive to implicate a kind of immediacy in my tattoos, so there's a lot of improvisation. It keeps the process fresh and fun for me," Chi told Brown Paper Bag, a blog about illustration. "I'm glad my clients like it too, of course! As for subject matter, that's usually provided by my client. I am often given room to apply my own kind of twist to the concept as well."
