Her art, her words, her eternal strength and inner (not to mention outer) beauty, continues to seriously inspire people around the globe. Her struggles, and her wins, are like the two sides of a life coin we can all resonate with...but what is different about her, is that no matter how hard things got, she continued to do what she loved with a passion that ignites our hearts like no other. In this collection of pieces, we bring together some sweet Frida Kahlo tattoos that we hope make you see all the different ways you can possibly embrace your love for your favorite artists.
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist...known at first for being Diego Rivera's wife (someone infinitely less cool than she), she is now known as the incredible artist that she is. Not only that, but she has become an icon for the Feminist movement, the Chicanx and LGBTQ populations. She lived her life with a zealous and fierce force, embracing the aspect of life that she loved most. Not only painting some of the best surrealist artwork out there, she was also a huge part of the Communist movement...she had affairs with big hitters like Leon Trotsky and Josephine Baker, she was a woman all her own, never to be repeated or replaced.
Frida Kahlo tattoos are some of our favorites, especially when they capture her strength, like Tony Talberts awesome traditional portrait, or her surrealist tendencies like Pamela Vecera's piece....or when they're just drop dead gorgeous like the recreation of her painting, "Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird" tattoo by Hako. Frida Kahlo tattoos will never ever go out of style and we're super stoked about that. Do you have any fine art tattoos? Who are your favorite artists? We wanna know...and we'll find an artist to do that perfect recreation if you need it! And we know fo sho, you need it. Ink up surrealist bb's!
