There are some things in this world that you will never be able to unsee: that one time in the 90’s when Gillian Anderson proudly wore such a low cut, backless dress that her whale tale peeked out the top, the way Donald Trump’s hair never really seems to move regardless of how much he does, and now these absolutely absurd animal pin up tattoos by Chelsea Shoneck.
Tattooing out of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Shoneck’s work is actually a really beautiful take on the neo-traditional style. Muted colors, lady heads, and weird animal hybrids often find themselves as the inspiration for the majority of her portfolio. Although there’s no telling how Shoneck came up with such bizarre creatures, our best guess is that it involved some sort of hallucinogenic, but however she did it, the end result is absolutely hysterical.
If you fancy yourself a super freak, purveyor of fine tattoos, or a general collector of oddities, look no further. Shoneck’s Frankenstein’d pin ups are just about as odd as you can get.
