Not all watercolor tattoos look the same, and Debbie Ripper’s tattoos are no exception.
Debbie Ripper is a tattoo artist from Mexico City who specializes in watercolor tattoos.
When you think of Mexico in regards to tattooing, the first thing that probably comes to mind is sugar skulls; but you won’t find any of those here. What you will find is a wide variety of pieces full of bright colors with Ripper’s signature watercolor flair.
Ripper’s tattoos range from pieces with sketch line work, to others with structured outlines, or some with no outline at all. The watercolor shading sometimes appears to have a brushstroke color application, but others revert to the more common ink splatter look.
Debbie Ripper shows us that not all watercolor tattoos look alike. Take a look and see what you think!
