Tattoos by Miss Arianna

Tattoo // Saturday, June 30, 2012
  Tattoo artist Miss Arianna is based in Rimini, Italy. In her own words, 'Traditional is my favorite tattoo style maybe 'cause it's like me: direct, clear and solid. It has a strength and a stability not easy to find in other styles… The reference points for my drawings aren't books about art. I take my inspirations from books of symbology, anatomy, ethnology, illustrations of 1700-1800 and by talking with people outside the tattoo world.'
