This Tattoo Artist Incorporates Pixels into His Beautiful Designs

Tattoos. Tats. Ink. Whatever you want to call them, we love ’em in all forms. From minimalist to floral to galaxy-inspired, these masterpieces have us ready to book our next (or first!) appointment at the local parlor. That’s why we’re introducing this new series: #TattooerCrush Spotlight. To kick things off, we’re focusing on Moscow-based artist Lesha Lauz (AKA Alexey), who puts beauty in the imperfections with what he calls his “Pixel + Glitch” style. And while his tattoos might be a little “glitchy,” these pixelated works of art remind us of the time when non-HD, low-res Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong were all that. You can even check out how to create this style with his painting tutorial on COPIC.


1. Russian Dolls: Alexey has the Matreshka dolls down to a pretty + glitchy tee. We are loving the fade effect here.


2. Unicorn: We wouldn’t mind having this majestic pastel creature on our backs. It’ll surely to bring magic wherever it goes.


3. Fox: Alexey is also known to whip out a few watercolor masterpieces. This foxy sleeve is a real beaut.


4. Lion King: Simba in pixel form? This makes us want to hakuna matata all the way to our local parlor.


5. Hedgehog: This adorable little hedgehog is too cute for words, but not for pixels.


6. Cityscape: This Prague cityscape has us dreaming of wandering through cobblestone streets and getting lost in the “City of a Hundred Spires.”


7. Galactic Seahorse: Apparently galaxy seahorse tats are a thing, and we are NOT mad about it.


8. Plane: A pixelated plane tat like this would be perfect for the world traveler.


9. TARDIS: Any Dr. Who fans out there? You too can let the TARDIS disappear to another time right on your very own arm.


10. Heron: This mighty sea bird is definitely meant to be in pixel form.


11. Dragon: Drogo, is that you? We think Khaleesi would definitely approve of this tattoo.


12. Fish: We’re glitchin’ out over this gorgeous shoulder tat.


13. Jellyfish: Psychedelic jellyfish FTW. This is a collab with another super talented, Moscow-based artist, Anton YellowDog.


14. Poppy: Pretty. Pixelated. Poppies. Now go ahead and say that five times fast.


15. Dog: Puppy power! This sweet tat is a great way to show love for your furry BFF.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
