Line Drawing Tattoos

Lynn Gunn


Lynn Gvnn celebrated her 24th birthday on March 15, 2018 by getting a tattoo.  Her band PVRIS was on tour in San Antonio, TX so they met up with local artist Mason Chimato, who also gave drummer Justin Nace a tattoo of Roman numerals on his wrist.

Lynn opted for an intricate Eye of Providence design on her upper back. The all-seeing eye of God has a halo of emanating lines which represent rays of light.  This particular drawing of the symbol, with four shooting arrows and a leafed branch below the eye, is a replica of a woodcut print created by American engraver Alexander Anderson in the early 1800s.

Lynn Gunn got this tattoo on the inside of her right arm following PVRIS’ concert in Houston, TX on October 1, 2017.

The design that she had inked is one of over 200 chapter headings that illustrator Aubrey Beardsley created for the 1893 book Le Morte d’Arthur which tells the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. This book was the first commissioned work in Beardsley’s short career. Although he died at only 25 years old, Beardsley’s art lives on an iconic example of the Art Nouveau style.

Lynn’s tattoo is true to Beardsley’s style of using only black and white without any gray for a very graphic look.

Bea Miller


Bea Miller got this minimalist drawing tattooed on her right bicep in December 2017.  With only a few lines, the design gives the impression of a couple hugging. The lover on the left has their arms around the other’s neck while the figure on the right has their arms around the waist.
