    Frankly, they look like my kid drew them… and I would more than likely get them. Why? Because everyone needs a little whimsey in their life.

    As a fellow tattoo artist these are actually pretty funny, not my style but also they aren’t poorly done either. I’ve had some people actually bring me similar pictures of stuff they want (most of the time drawn by their kids, themselves, or someone whose passed away but occasionally something random they’ve pulled from Pinterest and I’ve actually had paying customers come in wanting stick people tattoos and such. I don’t usually put images like this in my portfolio and I always ALWAYS do them by stencil so I can take a pic of the finished tattoo side by side with the stencil to show that It actually came out as planned. Parents getting something their child has drawn is also very popular nowadays, you should never judge a person by their tattoo. And if your curious you can always ask a person if there is a story behind it, most often I get some funny story’s behind bad tattoos.

    “Ugh this isnt art take her tattoo gun away ughh”

    You get that people come to her SPECIFICALLY to have tattoos like these done. She is famous for having this style, and people really love it- enough to pay good amounts of money. Shes not scamming anyone. Nobody goes to her for a realistic tattoo only to be conned and left wacky little doodles.

    One of these days, you’re all gonna have to accept that some things have value to others even if you personally don’t like them
