First off, this is one hell of a combo. Isn’t that Dragon Draper necklace awesome? You can get them in several different colors from Art by Aelia.

Second, that Choco/Mog tattoo! It’s a fantastic addition to the body art on our friend EmmaLee (aka Feyith) who also sent us pics of her amazing Firefly tattoo earlier this year.

German artist Peter Aurisch creates tattoos that are influenced by the works of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Picasso. Rather than inking from a sketch, Aurisch draws freehand using the stories of his customers as inspiration.

His use of bold lines, geometric figures and (at times) vibrant colors result in some stunning and unique tattoos. Check out more of his work after the break.

Artist Sanne Vaghi says she’s been fascinated by transience in nature for a long time, but her medium of choice is very permanent. She also says that lines play a big role in her tattoo work because they can emphasize the shape of the body. As you’ll see, these lines seem to flow like veins.

Jareth The Sloth King [Tattoos]


Apparently, Redditor SecondSuitor is into three things: ’80s movies, sloths and tattoos. Naturally, he decided to combine his passions.

Eddie Stacey of Ink & Dagger Tattoo masterfully added the seventh and final sloth to his sleeve in the form of Jareth from Labyrinth.

The sloth sleeve is also home to Sloth McClane from Die Hard, Ray Sloth from Ghostbusters, The Slothinator, Slothy Krueger, Beetlesloth, and of course “Sloth” from Goonies.

Everything about these tattoos are perfect. Check them all out after the break.

Of course Belle would be reading a book while getting some new ink.

Artist Joel Santana gives a few Disney Princesses a pin-up girl makeover complete with sweet tattoos. Belle, Ariel, and Snow White star as badass broads in his vintage style artwork called ‘Inked Princess Series’ and they are absolutely gorgeous.

Pay close attention to the girls’ very symbolic ink. More images after the break.
