Think tattoos are only for the skin? Think again. Designer Amanda Rillo has a love for tattoos, and she wanted to share with you what Busybee has to offer from books on the classic art to “tattoos” for your wall!
“These books inspired me because of the history of the art – I love the “classic” genre of tattoos – and mine are very “Sailor Jerry’esque”. We offer a book on his stencils here at Busybee. The Big and Great Books of Tattoos show an array of people in tattoo history which to me is beautiful. I love art and the fact that we can express ourselves artistically on the skin is an amazing thing to me, you take it to the grave – and every piece tells a story. The same with your walls at home, a decal and wallpaper can really express who you are and you can display a story of your interests (for those not so bold to ink their skin, ink your walls!),” says Amanda.
The Busybee team has even designed a tattoo parlor for a client, where they added in eye-catching elements and a mix of industrial metals, woods, and black and white details. Other tattoo-inspired items that you can find at Busybee include this Warhol-style Japanese Woman Wallpaper and a tribal Mirror, a symbol that is often found in tattoo designs.
