Ondrej Konupcik is a Czech artist that creates these breathtaking watercolor tattoo designs under the name ONDRASH. The illustrations boldly use ink and color to replicate the painting style directly onto the skin in a way that is so detailed and intricate. The end results are quite striking and showcase how tattooing is a very similar art form to painting.

Konupcik grounds his work in the story behind the tattoo given to him by his clients. The technique is similar to watercolor but works a bit differently with blending and ink on the skin. Rather than using black outlines for figures and shapes, Konupcik uses bold colors with a blended and diluted style that gives the pieces a subtle ombre effect. Konupcik's detailed style requires that only one client a day can be taken on since the pieces require so much detail and attention.
