25 Tattoos Inspired by Famous Paintings

Are you one of those people who wants to get a tattoo but can’t decide what you want the design to be? If you are, I’d suggest getting a tattoo of your favourite painting. The likelihood of you regretting is much less than with any other design since these paintings are inherently easy on the eyes and composed well. The only catch in this situation is finding a very talented tattoo artist, which is where this post comes in handy. Here is a list of incredible art-inspired tattoos and the brilliant tattoo artists who made them. Perhaps if you have the time (and the budget) you could one day get a tattoo from these gifted people.
