French tattoo artist Dodie combines symbolic animal totems, lace patterns and even paisley designs with flowers, skulls, feathers and other organic elements to create artistic, meaningful tattoos. Dodie’s designs are very popular with women as they are feminine without being flimsy. Each of Dodie’s designs contains strong shapes, bold outlines and a careful attention to both detail and silhouette. All of this makes for attractive tattoos that are easy to understand from a distance but reveal a wealth of intricate detail when viewed up close.
Dodie combines realism with abstract designs and patterns to create body art that appears to have been made from mixed media. Combining art styles within one piece can often add to the meaning and spiritual nature of a piece. There is a spiritual element in many of Dodie’s tattoos which is introduced into the tattoo through mandala designs, folk art and cultural icons.
