One of my favourite artists works not only with a brush and canvas but with an electric needle and human skin... nothing horrific... I'm talking about tattoos!

Angelique Houtkamp is a foxy blond, walking, talking pin up girl from Amsterdam covered head to toe in tattoos. Creator of an impressive collection of tattoo style water colour paintings, two published picture books "Tattoo Darling" and "Tattoo Mystique" and her new Line Drawing Book (more specifically for tattoo artists). Her work is instantly recognisable for it's simplistic take on classic pin up style tattoos with, in my opinion, a slightly burlesque vibe. Either way her designs would look equally becoming hanging on a wall as they would on the arm of a buff sailor...
