15 female tattoo artists on Instagram that you have to follow now!
One of these artists makes lace and beads in ink, another colors outside the lines. Here are the 15 most sought after tattoo artists on Instagram!
A lover of ink on the body? You've come to the right place. From intricate little lines to amazing full-fledged portraits, these badass female tattoo artists are taking every other artist on Instagram by the balls. Popsugar lists the most sought after of the bunch.
1. Kat Von D
Her portrait work is next to impossible to match! Though Kat Von D is hardly an underground artist, her pieces are pure magic. If you're able to nail down an appointment between tours promoting her cosmetics line at her shop, High Voltage Tattoo, it'll be worth your while.
2. Hannah Pixie Snowdon
This tattoo artist finds her inspiration in fantasy. Her creations are intricate but clean cut lines that make up beautiful tattoos.
Spot the savagely painful but surprisingly small bruise haha thanks to one of my oldest homies @jordangreen ❤️ can't wait for my body to be finished. The arms will make a lot more sense when it's all cohesive with the rest of the suit. Happy to be a work in progress till the day I die. The only constant is change ✨
Hannah loves her patterns.
Hot as hell, no?
Hannah is also big on charity and also does re-tattooing. Her Instaqgram gives me such warm vibes.
3. Miriyam Lumpini
The Witchdoctor, as she likes to call herself is based out of Los Angeles. She's part "Swedish Elf , part Congo Blood."as she states on her Instagram. Her love for colour and wild and beautiful animal designs shows through just one scroll. Take a look.
Her work with colour is truly truly spectacular!
3. Anka Lavriv
Anka's fine line work and stippling is a stand out. The ink work is delicate and her creations feature texturing and attention detail not often seen in tattoos.
4. Ryan Ashley Malarkey
RA's eye for details paired with with faux bead and lacework make her tattoos a work of art. She is the co-owner of The Strange and The Unusual Oddities Parlor in Wyoming.
Malarkey also has quite the eye for makeup, so watch her Instagram for beauty inspiration as well as tattoo ideas!
@nikkisimpsontattoos sat like a BOSS for the past two days while I tattooed her entire chest for a ridiculous 23+ hours. This girl is crazy! Next session we will add the owl's head onto her throat and bring the wings down into the sternum! I did this entire tattoo with my @fkirons Xion, and it kicked just as much ass on hour 23 as it did on hour 1 so thank you @fkirons for putting such great machines out into the world 🙏🏻. Also thank you @balm_tattoo for your Dragons Blood Butter Balm which saved us and allowed me to keep Nikki's skin soft and barely irritated for the duration of the 2 days. Also thank you to @heliostattoo @eternalink @hivecaps @inkedmag @inkmasterangels
I'm in awe of this lady, she's even got the folds right! Annnnd its freehand!
5. Alice Carrier
Carrier is known for colorful floral pieces. The Portland, OR-based artist taps into nature for inspiration, inking vivid re-creations of flowers, trees, and even vegetables on her clients.
6. Horu Tattoo
Known for tiny, sketch-style tattoos. The Korean artist is known for feminine tiny tattoos that use a balance of watercolor-style colors and clean, fine lines to create a dreamy effect.
7. Sasha Masiuk
Sasha is known for her dotwork tattoos. Whether crafting mandalas, flowers, or geometric designs on clients' skin, the best way to describe the work of this model and owner of Russian tattoo studios is "clean."

8. Krystals Tatted
She likes doing colourful pieces and sentimental tattoos. Much of Krystal's work focuses on special dedications like memorial pieces or an homage to a client's heritage.
9. Dominique Holmes
Her tattoos feature mandalas and mehndi-inspired body art. If you're looking an intricate piece with a unique flare, this Londoner is your perfect artist.
10. Amanda Wachob
Amanda has colorful, bright art that looks like it belongs on a canvas. Wachob's dizzyingly realistic floral tattoos and abstract body art are worthy of a museum... which is why she also does exhibitions at institutions like The Met.
This pic is from last February when I tattooed canvas and oranges @metmuseum for a crowd of 2,000+ people! 😅😳 ALSO. I am going to be taking on new tattoo projects!!
