Jiran crafts bold body art that blurs the line between the New School style and American Traditional. The designs feature thick black outlines and solid shades of color that look like they were applied with a set of markers. They’re minimalist yet charming; the Seoul-based artist makes all of her characters less menacing by adding a pair of cartoon eyes. Their vacant stares are powerful yet endearing, and so it comes as no surprise that many people choose Jiran to recreate their pet in tattoo form.
