Tattoo Nail Art.

It's tattoo convention week!! That is why this design is the best to choose.
This weekend the 2nd TATTOO EXTRAVAGANZA will take place in Portsmouth.
A lot of great artists will be there to show off their works, and I really want to check it out.
And here is what I've came up with:

Basically, I was looking for inspiration for this in the old/new school traditional tattoo designs, and I think they look awesome on the plain white base. Too bad that the one with cherries came out a bit messy, but still - I like it.

Here are some "tips" on how i did it:

1. Apply base coat and white nail polish for the background.

2. Take a needle (or anything sharp enough) and make an outline, so it will be easier to see what will be in the design.

3.Fill in the colors one by one using the same needle or a toothpick.

4. Do the outline the same way.

5. Cover the nail with a top coat and you are done!

Easy enough, but still time-consuming so don't think that you will get the nails you want in 15 minutes. It just will not happen.
Enjoy the new designs and have a great day!
Come back later for more nail art.


  1. these are really neat!!!! seems like it would take forever, but the time taken is well worth it in the end. amazing.

  2. The Little Canvas,
    Thank you for your comment!
    And, well, every design usually takes an hour and a half. May take longer, if it is more complicated, but it is worth it.
    Glad you like it!
    If you have any suggestions on the designs - feel free to tell me!
    Have a nice day.
