New York City-based tattoo artist Pony Reinhardt of Tenderfoot Studio is known for the way she intertwines geometry and the elements of the universe. Her tattoos are spectacular symphonies of plants, alchemy, space, and animals, all of which are made from black lines and come together on the body to create a story. Reinhardt posts her work on her Instagram account for all 477k of her followers to see. So, follow Reinhardt and in case you’ve fallen too deeply in love with her art but can’t make your way to Brooklyn to get a tattoo, Reinhardt also sells merchandise with her art printed onto it.
Reinhardt always includes detailed descriptions of what the tattoos consist of, like this one – crows fighting as a team by daylight while the barn owl fights with stealth and strength my moonlight.
