Note: Contains nudity.

A Lolita-like girl in red sunglasses, a nude woman in rope bondage… there is definitely a kinky side to some of these tattoos. There is also great artistry in the compositions, a care for light and shadow in hyperrealist quality. It is just beautiful the way Valentina Ryabova inked the roped girl in a Chiaroscuro-type-of-way making it look 3D; you almost forget it is a tattoo on someone’s arm.
