Best of Instagram: Vol. 4

Spring is on the horizon, and we are feeling it here in Long Beach. For this month’s Best of Instagram, we are featuring a few of our favorite floral designs.

Painterly rose from Suzanne Shifflett at Paper Crane

Suzanne Shifflett created this painterly rose. The placement elegantly fits the client’s forearm, while the colors make it look real enough to pluck. Suzanne does beautiful fine art tattoos, from pet portraits to elaborate floral pieces.

Vintage mushroom pinup tattoo from Lindsey Morehead at Paper Crane in Long Beach

Lindsey Morehead has a unique take on American Traditional. She has been working on some incredible lady tattoos, with a whimsically vintage vibe that we can’t get enough of. You can see her flash designs on our Instagram if you’d like to snag one for yourself!

Floral jelly

Jade Quail proves time and again that blackwork floral tattoos can be just as striking as color! This jellyfish is one of her most magical creations, with a lovely sense of movement to the design.

Black and grey floral tattoo from Sof Powdermink of Paper Crane Studio

We’re wrapping up this month’s featured florals with a black-and-grey piece by Sof Powdermink, the newest addition to our studio. You can catch Sof in Long Beach on Thursdays and Fridays, so stop by if you are in the area to get a tattoo!
