Here’s a pair of portraits by Victor Policheri that was sent in by Marteforsberg. Both tattoos are based on artwork by Lani Imre, and were done at separate tattoo conventions. The left one was done at the 2011 Oslo Tattoo Convention and the right at the Gothenburg Ink Festival 2012. Bonus points to Marteforsberg for getting a shirt that matches the colours perfectly.
Nexizydrate is no stranger to being naked on ModBlog, although come to think of it, I don’t think she’s actually ever been fully naked.. until now. You’ll have to read ahead to see the full images, or you can just head to the BMEGirls gallery to see them all.
Keep on reading to see the rest of this beautiful IAMer.
Nail, from Nail’s Tattoo in Budapest, Hungary, nailed this Mongolian girl tattoo. The realism in the portrait works brilliantly with the abstract red and black that surrounds the image.
Why would anyone ever get a portrait of the character Mimi Bobeck from the Drew Carey show? Dare I guess that perhaps it is simply because it makes them laugh and laughter truly is the best medicine.

Dan Lake went the classical route for this bust, however for the life of me I can’t recall where this image is from. Any ideas?
Dan works at Arthur T Sharpes in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I’m not sure the owner of Dale here was thinking of Shakespeare when they named him, but they definitely went to an artist when it was time to get a portrait of him tattooed.
And in case the watermark didn’t give it away, the artist they went to was Jackie Rabbit from Star City Tattoo in Roanoke, VA
Here’s a little something for the abstract lovers out there via IAM: Balthazar. This piece comes from Copenhagen InkFest and was done by Jacob Pederson from Crooked Moon.
I know that it probably isn’t everyone’s favorite disco mutant, but with the colouring and circles it’s the first thing that came to mind. This piece was done by Victor Policheri, based off artwork by Lani Imre, at the 2011 Oslo Tattoo Convention, and it won best tattoo of the day (Saturday).
Who has the better stache? John Waters or Salvadore Dali?
