Hamburg-based tattoo artist Susanne König illustrates surreal fairy story scenes and quirky characters utilizing a stunning mixture of blackwork and dot-work. Similar to drawings from children’s storybooks, each piece is equally loved as it’s humorous. Her illustrative sense depicts personified animals, collage-like hybrid creatures, and magical landscapes.
König‘s intricate approach requires a gentle hand and the utmost endurance to build up each piece, dot-by-dot. The monochrome palette makes them the right model for hardcore minimalists with a gentle side.
When you’re not quite prepared for vibrating needles, König additionally sells her illustrations as prints through her website.
