Make Mine Korean Style

Mini Lau

Hong Kong tattoo artist Mini Lau creates soft, feminine-feeling tattoos that are so peace-filled and natural-looking, I almost think my mother would have approved. Almost.

Lau is part of the artist collective that makes up Hello Tattoo, one of the most popular ink shops in tattoo-crazy Hong Kong. The collective embraces a wide variety of tattoo genres, and Lau’s penchant for small images and watercolor-like shading falls under the Korean style.

Lau’s inspiration comes from nature and from classic fairy tales, all which are wildly popular among her loyal following. Unlike most of the bolder, more brightly-colored tattoos I have featured over the years, these are so soft and minimal, they might actually age pretty well.

You can follow the very talented Lau on her website and on Instagram and Facebook.

  2. They certainly look like watercolor paintings–they are very “lightweight”. I like them a lot–thanks for posting!

  3. The tat on the ear had to have hurt like crazy, but I could stand the pain for beauty such as this. Gorgeous, Donna.

  4. I’m sorry but I am in agreement with you mother. She is an artist but I just can’t get into this form of “body art” God’s Holy Word tells us not to.

  5. Once again you have found some beautiful tattoos. The only thing is that you are making harder for you to choose a tattoo when and if you finally get one. Spoiled for choice.

  6. They are very pretty. I don’t have any tattoos but the softness of these appeals to me – though I do wonder if they’d fade quicker than average. I love the dandelion and snowflake designs in particular.

  7. So pretty, delicate and lacy-looking! They almost make me want to go get something similar, and never mind the pain! (Operative word: almost! 😀 )

  8. I change my mind too often to think I could commit to a tattoo, but that ear art…….. Beautiful. (And, as was pointed out, probably more than a little painful)

  9. I LOVE these! I love the color, and how dainty they are. ❤
