18 Amazing Portrait Tattoos

Paula in Tattoo Ideas

These portrait tattoos in various designs express different personalities to show you how contrasting and interesting they can be.

Once Charles Dickens told that “There are only two styles of portrait painting: the serious and the smirk.” These portrait tattoos will prove they can be much more by revealing different perfections. It is not just a picture of a person, for many, it is about love and closure, it is about special people, trust and memories. People eternalized the feeling by inking it.
