Here’s the simple and short story behind my tattoo.
Egon Schiele is the artist that shaped me in an artistic way. In high school I started studying art and at that age I was still searching for my own identity as an artist.
I would study Schiele’s way of drawing. His strong lines and the way he handles his pencil, it looks like he sometimes grips the pencil so tight, which cause the strong thick lines, and other times he just lets it float in his hand, which creates the more flowy and soft lines.
The piece that I chose for my tattoo has a bit of Gustav Klimt in it aswell (just look at the photos below for the comparison). Schiele was a companion of Klimt’s and I adore both of them. This piece in particular has so much expression in the woman’s hands. I just love his work and I wanted to admire it every single day.
Besides this little story I want to share my pinterest board full of tattoos that I love. The minimal and art history related tattoos always peak my interest.
