“I started thinking one day how I’ve never really seen any serious traditional ladyheads of black women in tattooing. If I can’t think of any, that at least means its rare if anything. Sadly, racism still exists in tattooing, and I’ve unfortunately witnessed it countless times. It’s fucked up and it makes me hate a lot of the trends that so many people try to pass off as continuing on tradition. I hope the new generation of tattooers starts to bring in more of their own personality and creates work with care and mindfulness. Our work is too important to ignore our influence. This is a big “fuck you” to all the racist fucks I’ve met in this craft, and hopefully the start of some new imagery from my peers. Beauty is beauty.”
Just found this! Taken by Shaun McCurry at the 10th annual Boston Tattoo Convention.

7yr old kid tattooing
Yet another badass lil girl. It’s so funny how big the gloves are on her. And her lil meshback… Adorable.
There is no such thing as too much ink. Anyone that would tell you otherwise is a buffoon.
Truer words have never been spoken.
