Chris Guest’s Paintings of Tattooed Women Are Breathtaking

There’s something about tattoos and women that immediately draws everyone’s attention and while opinions may vary, there is no denying the fact that tattoos and the female form certainly make for an interesting and beautiful match.

Chris Guest, an artist who lives and works in London thinks so as well, and painting beautiful portraits of tattooed women is a major part of this London Fine Arts, Battersea student’s work profile. Guest began early at the age of 14, drawing portraits of icons of the musical world for his friends at school, and soon, his love for the arts transcended into a journey that sees his work spanning the globe.

The classical oil painting techniques that Guest puts to work on his canvases make the portraits even more engaging. And each work gives us a different take on the various hues that make these tattooed subjects mesmerizing in so many ways.

Here are a few amazing paintings that Guest shared via his Instagram account.
