In this part of counting down my Top 100 Favourite Tattoos there’s tattoos relating to death, movie and cartoon characters, animals, silly and cute pieces, and anything in-between.
It’s a real mixed bag of tattoos, however this is just a glimpse into how my mind literally works as I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed. I’m not looking for any particular styles of tattoos or any certain imagery. I see a piece I like and I double-tap on the screen without skipping a beat, then move onto the next tattoo. In my mind I’m saying to myself how much I love a particular piece and then next second saying the exact same thing about another tattoo.
For me, I can determine within seconds how I feel about a tattoo. It has become somewhat of a problem as one piece doesn’t hold my attention for long before I’m drawn to another. Collecting tattoo images takes the social media and FOMO aspect away from it – I can now focus my attention on each and every tattoo and really analyse every aspect of it, to truly appreciate the talent required to produce such work.
