German tattoo artist Jessica Kinzer creates unbelievably detailed mandala tattoos with fine lines and dots.

Many of her tattoos utilize the geometric, concentric floral designs of mandalas. Others are less abstract, like the face of a bear of a complicated scene involving a whale and a hot air balloon. But whether they're mandala tattoos or more bespoke creations, each one of the ink-on-skin illustrations is incredibly intricate and beautifully drawn in Kinzer's artistic, distinct style.

With the rise of social media and tattoo artists' ability to share their creations with the world, the class of master tattoo artists has grown and gained status. It's becoming more common for the receiver of a tattoo to give their inker artistic license, going in with a concept rather than a specific design or even giving the artist total tattoo freedom.
