12 dreamy watercolor tattoos that seriously don’t even look like real tattoos

If you’ve always wanted a beautiful floral tattoo or watercolor piece but don’t like how intense (though beautiful!) they sometimes look, we have the *perfect* tattoo artist for you. Beyond delicate and hardly visible, the tattoos by Seoul-born artist Hongdam are incredibly light and stunning. We love the way that these tattoos seem to fade right into the skin while adding a gorgeous touch of color.

Here are a few of our favorite watercolor tattoos by Hongdam.
