Tilly Dee's Glittering Neo-Traditional Tattoos

Tilly Dee's Glittering Neo-Traditional Tattoos

Tilly Dee is providing her own take on traditional tattoos, giving them a burst of brightness.

Australia is a dangerous place. If you're able to survive the plethora of dangerous animals that are seemingly always trying to kill you, however, you could encounter some of the best and brightest (foreshadowing!) rising tattoo artists.

Tilly Dee is one of those artists. She is renowned for her take on traditional tattoos, splashing bright colors on skin to make the ink pop more. 

The self-proclaimed "Whiskey Gypsy," Tilly Dee originally was studying fashion when she discovered 50s beatnik culture. She saw how heavily tattooed bodies were in that time period and instantly fell in love. Inspired, she decided to delve into another form of fashion — tattoos.

Soon after, she got an apprenticeship at Mimsy's Trailer Trash Tattoos and honed her skills.

Check out these neon colors melding with this classic, bold line work!

Tilly Dee has been working her way around all of Australia, sometimes sitting in at Feline Lucky Tattoos, Mimsy's Trailer Trash Tattoos, and Manners Tattoo.

Catch her on Instagram and see if you can make a trip down under to get one of these bright beauties.
