Yes, actual real nature. 

Tattoo artists have become increasingly inventive over the years, and with new technology allowing for better detail, better color payoff, and even temporary "permanent" tattoos, we only see more good things happening in the future.

Instagram user @rit.kit, a female tattoo artist and illustrator based in Kiev, Ukraine, adds to the list of impressive creativity with her one-of-a-kind (literally) tattoos inspired by nature. She uses actual plants to create tattoos for her clients.

To create the tattoo, she starts by selecting a leaf, flower, or similar, and then dips it into ink. Next, she carefully places the ink-soaked plant on top of the skin.

The ink is then used as a stencil for @rit.kit. She essentially traces the ink and colors it in with the tattoo gun so that it looks as similar to the real thing as possible.

The results are almost like an optical illusion when you hold the original, natural inspiration up to the tattoo. You have to look very closely to be able to determine which is the real thing, and which is the copycat.
