No, this isn't an adopt-a-fluffy-thingy ad (though I sure wish it was!) but Teagan Campbell's hand poked critters are simply too cute for words and you're gonna want to take them all home!
Fluffy cats? Check. Studio Ghibli spirits? Check. Pokémon? Check. If you need a reason why you should give a hand poke tattooer a try in this ~modern~ age of tattooing, then there's your answer. On top of everything, Teagan Campbell is a very talented artist who made exemplary use of the raw quality of hand poking and perfectly blended it with her distinct art style. With a clean hand poked linework and teeny stippling details, she owns the manual method of hand poking and uses it to create feral creatures - with a few ounces of pixie dust, of course.
In many of her cat pieces, she really gets into the whole mystical vibe of things by adding cosmic details like orbiting sparkles that make the tattoo all the more magical. These are like the talking cats you encounter in a cool, new RPG video game. I love it.
I want twenty of these kitties.
I'm crying. She made Pokémon tattoos. This is happiness.
I CAN'T DEAL WITH ALL OF THIS.
Teagan currently tattoos at Black Cat Tattoo in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Fluffy creatures aren't the only things Teagan Campbell is fond of drawing on people's skin. She also likes coming up with these weird yet oddly mesmerizing portraits that would make your skin crawl and intrigue you at the same time.
She really went Hakuna Matata on this! Sweet!
Teagan also done a beautiful job on a simple yet lovely Frida Kahlo portrait.
