Lynn Gunn

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.

Amber Rose


Amber Rose maintains a good relationship with her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa, with whom she shares a son Sebastian Thomaz, but she didn’t want her face on her arm now that they’re no longer together.  Rather than removing the tattoo, she returned to the original artist Bobby Serna in August 2017 to give it a new look. Serna transformed the face into that of Amber’s rockstar idol Slash from Guns N’ Roses.  She already had a full-body portrait of Slash playing his guitar on her forearm.
