These Rectangular Tattoos Are Like Little Snippets Of Beautiful Scenery From A Much Larger Picture
Is it just us or are tattoos really getting awesomely smaller? We’re sure that you’ve already caught on to the current dainty body art trend. It started with cleverly hidden minimalist tattoos between one’s fingers and even their ears. And now, tattoo artists have fully embraced the style. We at Awesome Inventions have featured several tattooists who specialize in small-scale inkworks without compromising their wow-factor, like Kozo who creates surreal pop culture mash-up tattoos. Every tattooist has a distinct style. And it appears that coming up with quirky rectangle tattoo designs is what makes South Korean tattoo artist ‘EQ’ tick.
EQ specializes in placing traditional and contemporary Asian-inspired inkwork in a narrow setting. The artist refers to their rectangle tattoo designs as ‘Frames’. Each ink job features vibrant and magnificently executed details. Traditional Asian tattoo designs are incorporated in many of EQ’s rectangle tattoo designs, most notably the Chinese and Korean styles. Roaring tigers and graceful cranes regularly star in this talented tattooist’s Frames that usually feature seascapes and landscapes depicted in traditional drawing styles as a background.

And sometimes, EQ gets a little playful by letting a tiger ‘sneak out’ of the frame. By letting some characters cross out of the frame, the tattooist creates a curious effect that makes it even more fun to look at!
