FLASH FRIDAY: Howlin' Wolf Tattoo

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Here are some great designs for your next lady head or pinup.

The tattooist who goes by the handle Howlin' Wolf makes wonderful flash art of lady heads and pinups who are self-referentially covered in tattoos. Each one is composed of delicate as well as bold line work and filled with luscious colors. Check out this ample sample of his beautiful, tattoo-filled designs. They're quite lovely, especially since they have their own body art.    

We love the many themes in which his traditional depictions of gorgeous tattooed women come. Here we see everything from Disney's Snow White to cowgirls and biker babes. They look particularly good when accompanied by flowers or bordered by circles or heart-shapes of rope.

Some of his best flash designs are not of ladies but of hunks. The young punk rocker below is one of the supremely handsome. It's notable that he incorporates other languages into the banners of some of his illustrations of ethnic women. Also, it's awesome how his depiction of Amy Winehouse is accurate in terms of the tattoos that she actually had on her arm.

If you want to see more of Howlin' Wolf's art as well as some of his tattoos, please visit his Instagram. Also, he can be contacted at if you want your own tattooed lady by him.
