Tattoos Inspired by Alphonse Mucha

Using classical art as inspiration for badass tattoos is an excellent way of blending old and new artistic styles. From van Gogh to Banksy, art enthusiasts worldwide are itching to get their favorite works of art eternalized on skin. Alphonse Mucha, known to the art world as simply Mucha, brought the art nouveau style to life. With linear composition, unabashed optical curves, and a tastefully muted color palette at his disposal, Mucha created art that perfectly incapsulated the fantasy of mythical young ingenues. Roughly a hundred years later, tattoo artists are bringing a 21st century perspective to Mucha's work. Here are a dozen Mucha inspired tattoos that are fit to be framed.
