Art Historical Tattoos

I love tattoos. Or rather, I love well executed tattoos that are meaningful in some way. Recently I have noticed a beautiful trend in tattooing; I have seen a lot of tattoos inspired by famous works of art! From Hokusai prints to van Gogh paintings, they span all art historical periods and styles. I wanted to share just a few that I have found here:

Leonardo da Vinci’s Lady of the Disheveled Hair Tattoo (Source: http://fyeahtattoos.com/post/1499699856/leonardo-da-vincis-lady-of-the-dishevelled-hair)

I have recently completed a woodblock print of a tattooed woman! I think she fits right into this group
