My 2016 Preferred Tattoo Styles, YES Kawaii Is One of Them ???

Woot! Hi friends and happy Tattoo Tuesday! (A day I affectionately refer to as #TATTUESday ^^)

So today, I wanted to share tattoo styles I enjoyed in 2015 and would like to continue in 2016. However, before that let me share that 2016 has started off with me being a busy bee (as usual) and having some great news to share, so let’s start there! <3


SummerTattoo Tour 2016

The cities that we will be visiting are DC, Baton Rouge, Chicago, Miami, Houston, LA, NYC and Honolulu. If you’re interested in my work and would like to book, please feel free to submit your information here.

I have also updated my tattoo reservations section with private appointment bookings for now – August, cities that I will be visiting, and availability. However, if all else fails and you have a question, just contact me! K?! ^^

I have been on my personal mission to introduce and bring more kawaii to DC (I got goals mama!). A full overview of how eventful 2015 was for bringing kawaii to DC is available right here. And boy was it eventful. I also did a personal kawaii kwanzaa challenge (told yah I have been a busy bee hehe) where I aligned my kawaii lifestyle with kwanzaa principles as I counted down to the new year. Please feel free to check it out and comment if the mood hits yah. <3


Now on to the meat and potatoes of this post! ^^ I hope you enjoy ~

『The Meat & Potatoes!』

Tattoosin 2016

2015 was a great year for me actually seeing my strengths in various tattoo styles. (so thankful huhuhu) I am a versatile artist and won’t turn down most tattoo styles/ ideas, but I think it’s great to have a signature style(s) that an artist is recognised for. It helps especially when clients say things like

  • “I don’t know. You’re the artist …” or
  • “I trust you …” or even,
  • “I just want you to do you”

As much as I love my clients and truly appreciate their confidence, love, trust, and support in return, I swear that is a LOT of pressure. >.<

That shared, here are tattoos that I would like to do more of in 2016. In all things, I want to continue taking over full body parts doing large intricate & involved pieces.


The year of 2016 may very well be, go big or go home! ^^

Unless it’s cute. I can’t say no to cute! 😛

Let’s start with some Otaku love <3

I don’t think there’s much narration needed here. I am a geek girl living in a kawaii world ~

So why wouldn’t I want to do super otaku tattoos, yea?!

Kawaii tattoos are a given, duuuhhh~

No really! I NEED more of these cool kawaii ideas in my life (and my portfolio haha). Bring me ALL the cute things to tattoo ? Tell a friend and let’s get this gravy train going. *choo choo~*



Japanese-inspired pieces

(traditional Japanese or pieces of it is A-ok in my book too!)



More creative placement please!

Of course these are also Japanese-inspired pieces as well. haha

Inspirational tattoos are great!

I think Cee-lo Green said it best “and what I believe within, I engrave it in my skin”~




Lace, Mehndi, & Fine Lines!!!

Yup, yup! Bring me all of that!



Whimsical Tattoos Make Me Smile 😀

Creative pieces

If nothing else, just bring your ideas! They don’t have to make sense. We can actually have fun making sense of your jumbled thoughts and giving way to creativity, together~

Here’s to making great art with beautiful people in 2016! Meanwhile … I am also still translating this piece of goodness for English-speaking clientele. It’s one of my favorite pieces about my work being heavily Japanese-inspired. I want to be able to read it too! haha

I promise to make this happen soon. Gambarimasu!


But for now, please allow me to leave you with this photo of my and Terra’s face! Why?! So you’ll want to go learn more about #supportLIPS, our cause, and how you can help … and well … because we love you! *smooch*


I hope you enjoyed my tattoo goals for the year, maybe got some ideas and thanks for looking ~

Feel free to tell a friend ~
