Many people experience a close connection with animals, pets or not; this is probably why most people prefer animals as their choice for body art. Tattoo artists and painters are tasked with creating figurative representations of the intimate relationship we have with the creatures.
With humans, as canvases, artists are spoilt for choice with all the types of animals one can choose to draw on their bodies. However, organic animal forms seem to effortlessly match the contours of our bodies. Through their mastery of our body anatomy and their skillfulness, elegant contours of the models in these photos can become the nose of a tiger or even the smooth flank of a tropical fish.
