Kute Kittens: These kittens look a little concerned about something, judging from the look on their faces. But these are no ordinary kittens, they are in the style of Louis Wain famous for his drawings of large eyed cats and kittens. Extremely successful with his art but towards the end of his life, Wain suffered from ...
Just discoved Portland, 2010 style: A cool tattoo based on the City of Portland seal. I love her red gloves and fish net stockings...and her blonde hair, oh my god I love this girl. Was she sailing on the boat like that? You have to love your city.

A fantasy piece featuring a lovely lady with an interesting hair style that seems to morph in segmented horns. Almost a little Princess Leia-ish (Star Wars) in style I thought. And below that is a skull with a rose from the eye socket just for good measure.

Yeah, you walk down a crowded street and you can see people proudly displaying tatts on their arms, legs and necks, but it's rare to see a facial tattoo. The jury ...
Whilst tattoos can be seriously large pieces, such as a large tattoo encompassing the entire back, on the chest, half sleeve style or even a full Japanese style body suit. But sometimes, less is more, as they say... take this small diamond tattoo on the finger. This could be the one and only tattoo on your body ...
At first glance this tattoo looked slightly Freemasonish, but on closer inspection I think it's more cartographic-ish. That's a map maker by the way.

Owls: Bird of the night, hunter, mysterious psychic energy, symbol of wisdom. Or just plain cute? Whatever reason, owl tattoos will never go out of style (unlike tribal tattoos), so they make a good choice :-)
