When you think of Disney Princesses you probably think of squeaky clean icons of girly-girl-ness – sweet, innocent, and pure as the driven snow. But that’s not how artist Timothy John Shumate sees them. Instead he envisions them more like sultry seductresses with cleavage, come hither yet coy stares and, most notable of all, tattoos.
Think Ariel adorned with an anchor, Snow White inked with her beloved birds, or Jasmine with a full back tribute to pet tiger Rajah. Shumate made sure to keep their tattoos thematic and fitting to their storyline. And the results are very un-Disney-esque.
These are not your daughter’s Princesses but rather more racy and risqué versions for the adult set. And the over 18 set seems to really enjoy these images, so much so that they are getting these tattooed Princesses tattooed on their bodies, the most popular being Ariel.
Check out Jasmine, Ariel and Snow White in all their tattooed glory here and some of the tattooed homage’s here.
