Happy Easter!! xxx


And what better way to celebrate Easter than with the coolest eggs ever?


These are by the celebrity Tattoo artist Scott Campbell who’s inked such illuminaries as Marc Jacobs, Helena Christensen and Penelope Cruz.


 Louisiana born Scott abandoned a career as a biochemist to follow his calling (you can just imagine what his parents thought..)


I love that he doesn’t consider skin his only artistic canvas – the street aesthetic of the Tattoo style works so brilliantly against the fragility of the ostrich egg.  The snakes and spiders feel like their about to hatch out and all the time there’s an on-going relationship between life and death.


 A lady..or a skull?


Refreshing to see talent respected for talent no matter what the roots.

Wishing you all a WONDERFUL Easter!
