Tattoosday: Valerie Vargas

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


At my recent tattoo appointment I was chatting up Jamie about some of his favorite tattoo artists and he mentioned the name Valerie Vargas. I hadn’t heard her name before, but after an almost explicit showing of Jamie’s new tattoo by Valerie, (on his upper thigh,) and a quick google search I can see why he loves her, her tattoos are simply beautiful!  I'm smitten.  Vargas (currently tattooing at First Street Tattoos in London) has a classic tattooing style that incorporates LOTS of color, so obviously I love them.  Here are a few of the lovely pieces I’ve come across on the Internet, (what did we do before Google?)  Enjoy!!

 * I've never wanted leg tattoos before until I saw these... so lovely.

 *I have been a huge fan of russian doll tattoos lately, and I love the imagery of the butterflies coming out of them.  How cute would these be peeking out a pair of flats?

* One of my favorite aspects of Vargas' work is the carnival like themes like this bearded lady.  She's beautiful even with a BEARD. (Beard lovers unite!)

*  Even with no color this tattoo is perfection.

* Maybe the prettiest sleeve I've seen.  I want blush like this :)
