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.
Fantastic images and wise words.
