Tattoo artist Pietro Sedda is based in Milan and has his own shop called The Saint Mariner. His Instagram feed shows off an impressive portfolio of completed inks that are artistic, surreal, and hard to look away from. Many designs feature portraits but instead of faces, the heads are covered in mazes or abstract designs or maybe animals. They’re the kind of works I’d expect to see hanging on the walls of a museum.

Kaity O’Shea of Killer Tentacle Octopus and artist Camilla d’Errico have a new Kickstarter project to develop and create a wearable version of the tentacle crown from d’Errico’s painting ‘Dream Melt’.
However, the tentacular goodness doesn’t stop there. If you don’t want the crown itself, the project has all sorts of other items at different reward levels that will likely catch your eye. Earrings, art, accessories, make up bags, and even stickers are available at different reward levels along with a DIY version of the crown and even special colors.

If some of the Disney princesses joined the Suicide Girls, I have a feeling this art by Italian artist Emmanuel Viola would be a pretty good indication of the results.
A glam Cinderella, Aurora as a tattoo artist, and a pin up Snow White (that I’d love to see cosplayed), are just a few of the ladies in this series. Head after the break to see more.
These gorgeous steampunk versions of Disney characters come from the mind of DeviantArtist MecaniqueFairy who has taken everyone to a whole new world. Each character gets steampunk additions that perfectly fit, like goggles on Mickey’s top hat, Tinkerbell with mechanical wings, and Ariel with a breathing mask and finned boots.

This body paint is so good that it takes your brain a few seconds to grasp what it’s actually seeing. Believe it or not, this is a contortionist that’s bent over backward and painted to look like a tarantula. She also did a sea horse and giraffe design but the spider is by far the creepiest of the lot.

These fantastic shoes and helmets are the work of design firm Mathery Studio who created them for the National Gallery of Victoria. The idea was to encourage kids to be creative by letting them put on the helmets and shoes and create their own art on the floors, walls, and pretty much everywhere they could reach. Unfortunately, they’re not made in adult sizes and aren’t available for sale—but it’s a brilliant idea.
