    people calling these shitty and saying she is “a disgrace for the real tattoo artists” and “intentionally screw(ing) up somebody’s skin for the sole purpose of setting a trend” is honestly bs. art is art. period. just because you dont like like it doesn’t make her any more or less talented. and clearly people are liking the tattoos or they wouldn’t have gotten them. i personally love some of these and would get them myself. calm down, people.

    Some of these are brilliant! Her art may not be to everyone’s tastes, especially in such a permanent form, but to each their own. There are a few of these I’d consider having.

    I am a tattoo artist, have been one for 25 years. I have seen a huge paradigm shift in this direction. It’s called free market. I personally am not a fan of this but it’s dictated by the supply and demand market forces. If that’s what people want then so be it.

    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.
