Will You Ever Get One Of These Picasso-Inspired Tattoos?

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

Brace yourselves, people. It seems like there's going to be a new trend in the tattoo world. It's not famous yet but it sure has potential.

Well, I think it looks a bit more tasteful-looking than the aforementioned infinity tattoos. Nonetheless, it's the aesthetic appeal that makes it stand out. And the fact that it's a tribute to a great painter makes it all the more something to admire. It's a piece of art on a piece of art. Artception, call it as you may.

Most of these were Pablo Picasso's line art works, which are pretty much the artist's doodles, random or not. Though, we're certain that it won't be everyone's cup of tea. Not only do some people won't be into the minimalist style, but some might go as far as calling it a disgrace to the works of the artist.

I noticed that this particular piece, a line drawing of Francoise Gilot is the most popular choice for people looking to get a Picasso tattoo.

This one with a watercolour effect is one of my personal favourites among the tattoos here. It gives the sketch an edge.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this somewhere, perhaps a painting. Perhaps, Still Life with a Black Bull Book Palette and Chandelier? Or maybe, Guernica.

This one's not a Picasso, but you can definitely feel his influence there somewhere. Nonetheless, a nice piece from talented artists.

Picasso had this dog named Lump which was quite close to him, even dying several days before him. Lump was a dachshundwho was often seen hanging around somewhere in Picasso's works. The artist truly adored that dog.

Tough one, it's either from Picasso's Hands with Bouquet or Bouquet with Hands. Picasso's crazy like that.
