5 M’sian Female Tattoo Artists That Are Wicked AF
A decade ago, no one would have thought that women would be inking as a profession, because let’s face it, this is an industry dominated by men.
Nowadays, more and more women are getting inked, in which a number of us are even venturing into the career of a tattoo artist. Talk about breaking taboos! No more choosing doctor, teacher or accountant as the only career option.
Just take a look at Kat Von D, who was the star of reality TV show LA Ink. Her skills are so impressive and we just can’t help but to get inspired! But did you know that Malaysia also has some pretty talented female tattoo artists? Check out these ladies in the list below and you should definitely follow them on Instagram:
