Sensations, emotions and dreams are mirrored in the women’s faces interpreted in styles such as Neo Traditional, Realism or Chicano.
The faces are embellished with flowers, hairstyles, long lashes and beauty spots.
They look more like skulls in the more classic renditions of Catrina and are combined with heads of birds or other animals in Neo Traditional.
In the style closer to Art Deco they display a refinement of technique, playing with shading to give three-dimensionality to facial features such as cheeks, eyes and hair.
A subject which allows the artist to express all their creative flair and personalise it according to the wearer of that tattoo.
As in these images selected by the editorial team of Tattoo Life to use the face in order to express the very best of tattoo in every style.
