Black Female Tattoo Artists
Article by Alltattedup
Having been a black tattoo artist myself, I have always had a special liking for black female tattoo artists. They are unique, rare and hard to come by, but each time I see one of them, I am reminded that all treasures are beautiful and rare. Since my early years as a tattoo artist, I have been impressed, inspired and influenced by some of the most beautiful black female tattoo artists and their work of art has always made me believe that they have a unique sense of beauty and finesse. In a profession dominated widely by the white male community,some of these artists have stamped their authority despite the double discrimination of color and gender. I dearly hope that this would be an inspiration for other aspiring young female tattoo artists especially those from the black community because, having seen their work, I am convinced that this is a treasure, too precious to lose. So we have put together a little collection of the most beautiful, artistic and inspiring black female tattoo artists who
have made their mark not only on the bodies of tattoo enthusiasts but on the African American community as a whole.
