I’ve been a huge fan of Ebony Mellowship for many years now, after first being introduced to her though Inked Australia/NZ magazine. All of her work is incredible but, for some reason or another, I’m just always drawn to her themed hand tattoos.There are so many euphemisms and double entendres I could use while talking about tattoos of hands, but this isn’t an episode of Are You Being Served? so I’ll try to keep things classy. I’ll leave the jokes up to your own filthy imaginations.
I never knew just how much I wanted a tattoo of a hand until I saw more and more of them popping up in my Instagram feed. It’s as though there’s some magical force where the hand tattoos literally grab my attention.
It may at first seem a little odd to get a tattoo of a hand, but when you think about it it’s no stranger than any of the other weird shit us tattoo collectors put on our bodies.
If you’re not keen on having a random face on your body, yet still want to convey a personable, human element to your next tattoo, maybe a hand is the way to go. There are so many options for themes, imagery, and details which you will see below.
The word hand has lost all meaning for me now, so keep scrolling for 25 delightful tattoos by Ebony Mellowship.
Also, be sure to give Ebony a follow on Instagram @ebony_mellowship.
