Turkish Artist is Creating Adorable Minimalist Tattoos

Ayhan Karadağ is a tattoo artist who creates adorable minimalist tattoos that almost look like illustrations from The Little Prince. He has been drawing since he was 11 years old and says there hasn’t been a moment in his life when he didn’t want to do it. “I gave up so much for it,” says the artist. “I believe that art is my fun, my culture, my lover, my ritual, my everything.”

Throughout his life, Ayhan experimented with many forms of art – he even created handmade ancient Greek musical instruments at one point! Eventually, he realized that the material he likes to work with the most is human skin. “While making art, I realized that a person’s body is the most valuable material and that I want to make people happy when they look at my work on their bodies…” explains the artist. “I don’t think there’s anything more gratifying than carrying the fairytale design that one imagines in his body all his life.”
