Kirsten Holliday is the John James Audubon of the tattooing world. Focusing almost exclusively on florals and birds, the realistically rendered, naturalistic imagery sprawls across her clientsâ€™ bodies. Theyâ€™re like flipping through the pages of one of his books, â€śThe Birds of America,â€ť as the portraits of creatures showcase how they interact in their natural habitatâ€”a crow picks up small seeds while a snake slithers from underneath a branch. Holliday, of course, adds her own twist to the classic imagery with influences of traditional tattoos and art nouveau.
