GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS: The Painterly Ladies of Aimee Cornwell

GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS: The Painterly Ladies of Aimee Cornwell

These tattoos belong in The Louvre.

Aimee Cornwell is a second generation tattooer hailing from Oxford, England, who makes perhaps the most artful tattoos I've ever seen. Cornwell's works don't just look like beautifully executed, nearly flawless tattoos — they look like actual oil paintings. Like, insane, glowy, piercing, how-the-fuck-did-somebody-even-paint-that oil paintings. The dewey skin, the glossy eyes — Cornwell's ladies seem to literally glow from within the skin. I guess what I'm trying to say is they're basically just pretty fuckin' unreal and you need to see them. Lots of them. Right now. 

Let's be honest, I could run my bullshit, art school mouth about Cornwell's tattoos all day — but, I have shit to do, and I'm sure you do too — so I won't. Instead, I'll just let you guys see for yourselves. I've gathered some of Aimee's most impeccable, luminous tattoos below for your viewing pleasure — so by all means, feast your eyes. 

If you love what you see (and let's be honest, how could you not?) and wanna check out more of Aimee Cornwell's work — head over to her Instagram to stay updated with her latest masterpieces.
