Surface design: Japanese tattoos

I love the decoupage and Victorian style patterns which are trending in 2016, especially those coming out of Liberty London. Typically these surface designs use found illustrations, or are styled like 19th century prints. I wanted to put a different slant on this trend and stick to vectors. I was inspired by Japanese tattoos (with their saturated colours) and by the work of more traditional Japanese painters like Kawahara Keiga.
