Tattoo Snow

Once only the mark of a true sailor, biker, or rebel, the tattoo today has made its way well into mainstream western society.  From college students to corporates, record numbers are taking the plunge into the world of decorative body art. Along with a growth in clientele, the tattoo world has seen an increase in the number of practicing artists and diversity of styles.

Disney's first princess may not be your first choice when it comes to choosing a subject for a design, but it seems the perfect pick to me. And I'm not alone as attested to by the numerous Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs pieces out there.
