Disney Princesses Getting Inked

P R I N C E S S   P I N - U P S
Illustrator Joel Santana asked himself: What would Disney princesses look like as tattooed pin-up girls? The results are fabulous. Each girl is a sexy, confident, modern-day boss-princess. The best part, though, is Santana keeps the girls true to themselves; their tattoos even give subtle nods to their individual stories. Here are the princesses he’s drawn so far.
BEAUTY and the BEAST
Pin-up Belle is still a voracious reader, and gold is still her color. Her ink is heavy on roses, which makes perfect sense, given the enchanted rose from the Beauty and the Beast story. We also spot a clock, a candle and a teapot on her arms. And, it’s likely no coincidence the man behind her art is very beast-like.

S N O W   W H I T E
This Snow White has her own magic mirror AND her own poisoned apple. The Seven Dwarfs are nowhere to be seen in the setting, but S.W. is an independent woman these days. The dwarves are, however, represented on her arm with a simple number ‘7’ and a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it diamond. Oh, and she’s totally rocking that purple streak in her hair.

T H E   L I T T L E   M E R M A I D
Ariel is still Ariel, with her bright red hair, purple bra and green bottoms. Despite her lack of fins, she still has a mermaid-like elegance. Ariel’s stayed true to her roots with a crab tattoo and music notes — she’s probably still got a fabulous set of pipes, natch.
