One of history's most renowned Art Nouveau painters Gustav Klimt is known for his decorative style paintings filled with erotic scenes. And considering all the subtle details in the paintings, these must've been quite a challenge to put on canvas. But now imagine painting those on the skin... Or even better, take a look at tattoo artists who already did that.
"The Kiss" by Gustave Klimt (1907) is his most famous work. He used oil paints and gold leaf as his medium. His inspiration came from the Byzantine mosaics he saw during a trip to Italy a few years before the conception of this work.
