    Why would anyone want this shit? Because she’s attractive? I’d rather let my toddler scrawl on me.

    trash artist, trash click bait,

  3. Teezaweezl March 27, 2019

    I seriously don’t think that I could love them more, haha.

    some of them actually really work. I actually have a friend who let his toddler tattoo him. The art is similar.

    She could make a fortune with temporary tats.

    She does have a very unique style…I found a couple of these quite charming.

    The sad world is spot on.

    some of these are…ok. the vegan one at the end and the jaguar in on the shoulder…they are…ok.

    I’d not pay regular tattoo money for them…if i’d pay at all.

  11. Denise March 27, 2019

    I love these, unique and one of a kind, what more could you ask for?

  12. Robyn March 27, 2019

    Some of these are good, but not good enough to be on skin permanently. Someone mentioned temporary tattoos. That would be a good idea 😊

    This is awesome! Loving it.

    She is doing this on purpose as a form of simplistic art. A person who knew nothing about art, design and form would be all over the place with their drawings, however while hew tattoos seem remedial and simplistic, the art and lineage itself follows simplistic rules of art drawing and form of the most basic…. she knows what she is doing and is marketing herself off of something more in-depth then she lets on. Points to her for creativity!

    I think she can actually draw very well. She knows what she’s doing.

  16. Anonymous March 27, 2019

    I don’t doubt that tattoo enthusiasts travel long distances to get one of her tattoos.

    If you want me to take a dump in a box and write guarantee on it I will.I have spare time.

  18. Joyce March 27, 2019

  19. Pony March 27, 2019

    Expressive. Evocative. Fantasic!

  20. Anonymous March 27, 2019

    Some of those look like they are getting infected!

  21. Inkmeplease March 27, 2019

    Love it! Totally tickled by all the hate too. It amazes me how upset people get by the choices of others. I say keep on challenging the aesthetics…keep on triggering people :D

  22. Anonymous March 28, 2019

    I thought I’d hate them but I like them. Especially the dogs😂

  23. SU March 28, 2019

    ❤️Like taht.

  24. Huh? March 28, 2019

    Inkmeplease: what hate? Some people just don’t like them. Where’s the hate? Chill, use proper words.

    That virus tat is just GOLD!! :)

    If you check out her instagram you see that she does have some design skill. these drawing are a stylistic choice. i don´t like them, but to each their own, i suppose.

  27. michael dent March 28, 2019

    probably everyone who says they like these have NO tattoos

  28. M March 28, 2019

    You have no respect for the art. Plain and simple. If you intentionally screw up somebody’s skin for the sole purpose of setting a trend or some aesthetic bullshit, well think twice.

    Good drawings make good tattoos. Period. If you can’t draw, don’t tattoo.

    Screw that “to each is own” shit. ❤️

  29. Hornblat March 28, 2019

    Not bad in any sense of ” Art ” , At least none of them are Trump Bashing …( ducks )
