Cheyenne Randall Gives Celebrities an Inked Edge

March 03, 2014

Seattle based artist, Cheyenne Randall has created an ongoing project on his Tumblr page titled Shopped Tattooswhere he photoshops tattoos onto iconic images of celebrities past and present. After years of creating Native American artwork, Randall turned to his habit of sketching tattoos on celebrities in magazines and used Photoshop to create his current and strikingly realistic images. His work depicts iconic images such as Muhammed Ali, Bettie Davis, and Audrey Hepburn. “All of these images were created as a form of curiosity. What some of the worlds most recognizable and admired icons would look like perhaps living in a parallel universe. This has never been about ‘What would celebrities look like with tattoos’ although it is clearly centered around tattoos because I personally love Tradition tattooing,”says Randall.
