Inspiring Tattoo Artists

Hi there! What they say is true: tattoos are addictive. I can spend hours on end on scrolling through inspiring Instagram-accounts, and 70% of my phone's memory is filled with images of perfect permanent prints. I have a few absolute favorites whose tattoos I almost all adore - here's my list.


This is a vague photo of the tattoo I have on my wrist! I currently have two tattoos and my third one's almost planned - I have an appointment with the tattoo artists who's going to create it very soon. Yay! :-)

I only just noticed that all the tattoo artists I've shared are female - funny! My favorite designs are by Susanne König - I love how cute her tattoos are. The Escher-tattoo by Caitlin Thomas is one I adore as well: I'm a great fan of Escher's drawings, seeing this one as a perfect tattoo is so cool.

Looking at collections of images like this one makes me even more exciting for my upcoming appointment on the 10th of December. I don't know what my tattoo is going to look like yet but I do know that it's going to be on my left lower arm, between my two existing tattoos. When that one's finished my arm's going to look a bit like a sleeve... ooh! I'll keep you updated and speak to you soon!

  8. I don't have any tattoos nor do I ever plan on getting them permanently, but I think they are beautiful! So my friend does henna on me often and it feels like a tattoo even though it lasts only a couple of days. Still, having something there that means something is incredible. Love this post! <3
