1940s style

This tattoo drew inspiration from classic, vintage tattoos of the 1940s but added a mommy-twist. I love the result! It's a little rebellious but still beautiful.

I've never seen a tattoo done in they style before, let alone a breastfeeding tattoo. The colors really set it apart from any of the other pieces on this list.

This tattoo was done with a stippling method, meaning that small dots were used to achieve the design and shading. It creates a beautiful and whimsical scene of motherhood.
