The Painterly Nature Tattoos of Charlotte Ross


Glasgow’s Charlotte Ross creates animal and flower tattoos that look just like paintings.

Tattooing out of Custom Inc. in Glasgow, Scotland, Charlotte Ross creates beautiful colorful tattoos.

While her pieces feature a wide variety and species of flowers and birds, the common theme is Ross’ painterly style of tattooing. It wouldn’t be out of place to refer to Ross’ clients as canvases because it truly looks like she has painted on their bodies. There’s subtle brushstroke-like shading, hints of watercolor elements and a smooth feel to the tattoos.

If you’re after a color realism tattoo with a twist, then Charlotte Ross’ tattoos might interest you. Take a look and tell us what you think!
