Dark & Disturbing Blackwork Tattoos by Lauren Melina

Dark & Disturbing Blackwork Tattoos by Lauren Melina

Adorned Empire's resident blackwork artist is killing it.

Western Australia is known for its year-round sunny weather, but there's nothing bright and cheerful about these tattoos by Lauren Melina.

Melina's tattoos incorporate a range of styles, but the one common theme to them is the heavy use of black ink. The imagery is of such a dark and disturbing nature that they would certainly look out of place in full color. There are no horror movie characters featured here, but the devil does make an appearance more than once.  

Come to the dark side and check out the work of Lauren Melina.

Blackwork lovers should definitely follow Lauren on Instagram!
