Ladies tattooing ladies is a beautiful thing. We say it all the time, but it really is true. When women are depicting other women, the results are just as diverse as IRL ladies. Lady heads are as iconic to traditional tattooing as roses or daggers, and when done right, they’re some of the most beautiful, poignant pieces around. Artist Jaclyn Rehe is no exception to this, as her ladies are some of the toughest, most beautiful, diversified women around.
Tattooing out of Chapel Tattoo in Melbourne, Australia, Rehe is a traditional artist that focuses primarily on female subjects and animals, and while both are extraordinary, her lady heads are some of the best in the business. Portraying everything from gritty cowgirls, to whimsical moon babes, her women are both tough and gentle, outlaws and heroes, boldly sexual and quietly conservative. Rehe’s women know no societal limitations. So whether they’re donning big bouffants, flowers in their hair, a ten gallon hat, or an armed robber’s mask, one thing’s for sure, Rehe’s women are just as diverse as the women they undoubtedly were inspired by.
