Thinking about finally getting that tattoo? Why not go all out and get a super colorful Kawaii tattoo?

We’ve put together a short list of our favorite Kawaii artists that could give you the tattoo that dreams are made of…and they all happen to be badass women of color.

1. Arcissa “Cissa” Jackson-Jacksonville, Florida, United States

About Cissa: “I’m the founder and owner behind Harajuku Tattoo. I was born in Yokosuka, Japan and lived in Japan on and off for 7 years before coming to America. Many of my styles and designs are heavily influenced by my background as an Afro-Asian(Blasian).

With 3 tattoo apprenticeships and a background as an art teacher for the Boys and Girls club, I’ve been cultivating my passion for design for many years. Here at Harajuku Tattoo I am the lead Art Bae and 3rd year tattooist at what I hope will be one of the most innovative and iridescent tattoo establisments to ever debut.”
