Pretty porcelain ladies with tattoos fit for a sailor… YES! This is the work of Scottish artist Jessica Harrison, and it’s currently showing in Paris at Galerie L.J. The show runs until June 24th, so if you’re lucky enough to be in Paris this Spring you really should pop by… on your way to a Parisian tattoo parlor, perhaps!

    Love the new skin that she gave these ladies. Beautiful idea.

    I clicked over to her website to see if she had more porcelain ladies, and was not disappointed. I would absolutely line these up on my mantle. The work is beautifully done, which I think is really important to pull off humorous pieces.

    Actually I’ve been doing this for years. My name is Gemma Osborn, a Tattooer in the UK. I have a page called Tattoo Menagerie. I was selling pieces at Brighton Tattoo Convention.

    I love these, but I’m also curious about the ceramic and sculptural processes. Does she make the porcelain figurine and add the tattoo details?

    I couldn’t really find anything on how the artist made these and I’m curious and jealous 🙂

    […] LET’S TALK ABOUT ART BABY: I recently discovered Native Textile and I am nothing short of obsessed. #34 is my favorite. I missed the last workshop she did in SF, but I am really hoping to make it to the next one. Anjana Iyer’s project, Found in Translation, illustrates words that have no direct English translation. See Huff Posts profile of her work here, and more of her work on her website. Jessica Harrison is killing it with her tatted porcelain dolls, found via The Jealous Curator. […]

    I know this post is old but I just read this article on Jessica Harrison. The intestine one is my favorite. I have a painting that’s similar which is why my friend shared the article in the first place. <3
