  The Neverending Story was one of my favourite films as a kid. Today it remains pretty high up on the list. This tattoo of Falkor the Luckdragon and the Auryn talisman is – and this is a word I don’t think I’ve used in any of my posts before – enchanting. I think it’s […]

Source I tend to skip past Chinese dragon tattoos…partly because they’re generally a bit, well, samey. It’s not often that one makes me thinks ‘wow!’ This one, however, stopped me in my internet clicking tracks. The scales belonging to this fiery little beast are perfect. The positioning of the tattoo couldn’t be better. I never […]

Source I was a big, big BIG X-Men fan back in the day. Okay, so Wolverine wasn’t my favourite character (that role went to Storm) but he wasn’t far behind. The thing that struck me first of all about this cartoon themes piece was its vibrancy. It jumps out immediately. This piece is the epitome […]

Source I remember the first time I watched Silence of the Lambs. I was underage and recall thinking ‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about. This isn’t scary at all.’ My thoughts changed a number of years later. Anyway, this tattoo of one of horror’s best known character – Hannibal Lecter, the cannibalistic serial […]

Source Jelly fish make the most wonderful tattoos – fact. I couldn’t  write about this one fast enough. There’s a beautiful gentleness about it. I would go so far as to say that it’s serene. The nebula behind our slippery friend gives this piece it’s truly gorgeous individuality. Who would have thought to combine the […]

Source   I have a great fondness for mandala tattoos, and one of the reasons why you haven’t seen me posting many is because it’s so damn hard to choose only one to share. The one you see here however hit me hard, and made me momentarily breathless. The intricate detailing is utterly magnificent and […]

Source Autumn is one of my favourite times of year. Watching the leaves turn from green to deep oranges, reds and yellows is always a pleasure. I think that as we get more and more obsessed with our phone screens, we miss what’s happening all around us, as nature shifts from one season to the […]

Source This tattoo really should win some kind of prize for originality. I’ve seen thousands and thousands of tattoos made up of roses and skulls, and nowadays I generally skip past them because they tend to be quite mediocre. However, I’ve never actually seen a rose skull. What we have here is something utterly spectacular. […]

  Source I might not be a  massive Star Wars fan…okay, I’m not a Star Wars fan at all (don’t try and hunt me down and kill me, please!) but I know when to appreciate a damn excellent tattoo. This rather exquisite tattoo of Yoda – one of the most powerful Jedi masters in galactic […]

Source I bet this is one thing that you never expected to see me post! I know a few people with these hairless cats, and though they can be a little bit unsettling at first, when they’re in their little jumpers they’re extremely cute. This tattoo was one of those tattoos that claws you and […]
