The Weird and Endearing Darkheads of Agatha Schnip’s Tattoo Art

Agatha Schnips is a Berlin-based tattoo artist and the creator of “darkheads”: a creature she dreamt up about a year ago after being inspired by the atmospheres of horror- and dark-fantasy-based video games (“Dark Souls 3” and “Bloodborne” were cited as examples). Schnips told Scene360: “While being inspired with this weird but great beauty [of video games], I decided to draw this gender neutral, mysterious, humanoid creature that stares at you without knowing if it’s well intentioned or not.” Whether clad in battle gear or clutching a teddy bear, each darkhead has a new story behind it; “I want people to have their own interpretation of what they may represent for them,” the artist added.
