Tattoo Artist Lily Cash Will Be Your Latest Fashion Icon

She may be a greenhorn tattooer, but in fashion, Lily Cash is at the top of her game.

Meet Lily Cash, the newest tattooed it girl whose eccentric style you'll soon be obsessing over. With her sharp, jet-black, bob cut, fit, petite frame and unabashed confidence, she carries whatever designer coat or thrift store boots she puts on with aplomb. But, of course, none of that will be the same without her striking tattoo collection.

Lily Cash is a 24-year-old tattoo artist based in Hong Kong who moonlights as a street fashion icon on her Instagram account. She caught the attention of Marie Claire HK who recently featured her in the magazine. Lily currently works alongside Jiran and Karl H. at MoFo Tattoo at Soy Street. 

She strongly believes in the artistic impression of tattoos in contemporary fashion, telling Marie Claire that tattoos are now more than just a personal statement, but also a permanent fashion statement that's definitely not for the faint of heart.

Among her tattoos, it's her bold neckpiece that stood out the most. It's an intricate blackwork design she shares with Karl H., who happens to be her significant other.

When she's in the mood for something simple, she likes to keep it simple with UNIF staple pieces like this rainbow sweater

Casual means looking like an H&M ad model without even trying.

She can go from looking rough in edges straight to cutting-edge chic fashion real quick.

The young tattooer lists fellow artists like Kelly Doty and Katy McGrath as her main tattoo influences.

Even on Halloween, Lily Cash is still slayin' with an on-point Queen Amidala costume.

She really knows how to pair off clothes to hang really well on her petite frame.

Rocking those baggy, cut-off jeans with a striped dad shirt like it's the early 90s.

Those killer Mary Janes better work.  

Before her cutthroat-sharp bob cut, she experimented with bright hair colors.

I mean, really, how many people do you know who can casually look badass walking in the street looking like an innocent schoolgirl at the same time? It's Highschool of the Dead all over again.
