Mysteries and Dark Tales: Tattoos by Meagan Blackwood

Meagan Blackwood, tattoo - eye and hand

Meagan Blackwood is a Montreal-based tattoo artist who uses black vegan ink to produce mystical, thought-provoking images. Visiting her Instagram portfolio is like opening an illustrated book of Grimm’s fairytales; animals, people, and disembodied parts dance across skin or pose in an esoteric fashion, everything tinged with an aspect of playfulness and/or darkness. With her good line work and ability to combine powerful symbols, Blackwood can tell an entire story in a singular image.
