*I recently learned of Kara Walker's work and really love it. What a wonderful daily reminder of the choices we make at the crossroads in our life. (Brandon, I told you I'd look for you!)
*Shepard Fairey has been in the public eye a lot over the past few years regarding both his HOPE posters for President Obama's presidential campaign as well as for the Time Magazine person of the year cover, (the Protester,) which are both wonderful, but I love how simple and pretty this tattoo inspired by his work is.
*So I know, everyone and their dog loves Van Gogh's Starry Nights and Monet's water lillies, but as a tattoos? Amazing. I love how colorful and detailed they are!

*I've been blown away by the Tel Aviv street artist Know Hope for a while now, and am now completely in love with the tattoos representing his main 'character' in his street art. And the birds...oh the birds. They're like little birdy paper airplanes.

*And speaking of blown away, aren't these David Hale tattoos amazing? David is an actual tattoo artist, but also sells paintings and prints and all sorts of beautiful contemporary pieces. I LOVE the fox.

*Peter Aurisch's another artist/tattooist...his work looks like pieces of a dream...
