Sometimes a portrait tattoo of a person is so distinctive that you can tell who it is instantly, other times, the portrait may be done in a manner that the person is intentionally tricky to distinguish. Then you have times that you see a portrait that’s really well done, but for the life of you, you can’t figure out who it is of.
At this point you either know who it is or you don’t. If you’re like me and didn’t recognize her, I’ll save you the google search. That is none other than Eva Angelina, a porn actress best known for wearing her glasses when “acting”. I’m not sure who the artist is, but the title, plus a quick reference by a friend of mine, led me to her wiki page where I discovered that she’s won quite a few awards and is a new mom. So whoever was the recipient of this tattoo is probably a huge fan. I’d also like to thank them for picking an image of her that I didn’t have to hide behind a click-through.
The artist of this piece is none other than IAM: Nick Friederich from Shelton Tattoo in Shelton, CT
So while a portrait of a porn star may not be your cup of tea, you can head on over to the portrait gallery to find one that is up your alley.
