I usually don’t like to mix my real life job and the dolls. But since my shop is closed once again, I thought why not use the dolls as an inspiration for some doll tattoo designs? The dolls are keeping me occupied and sane, but I really miss my job. And of course I am not really happy about not being allowed to earn my living. My savings won’t last forever.
Anyways, enough of the whine, I am healthy and never bored, so I should be glad.
And nobody can forbid creativity, so I just do it for fun and share the result with you. If you happen to live in my area and want to get some dolly ink – I’d be happy to do it once I am allowed to work again. I would love to do the one with the cupcake, either in black & grey with a little bit of color or in really bright colors. Actually- I would love to do all of them :D.
I chose Blythe for the dolly doodle designs because they’re cute and recognizable. I could imagine a couple of nice BJD designs, but apart from the joints mine don’t really look that much like dolls. I use them as models if I want to do a drawing of humans in specific poses.
But I only know of one customer who collects dolls (she was the one who gave me the face plates), and she prefers Celtic designs. I have done doll and teddy tattoos before, but mostly broken/ragged and with a definitive touch of goth.
If you actually really want to use these as tattoo designs I am sure your artist will be able to modify them and add color or shadows. And of course I would love to see the result.
And as usual, I appreciate your subscription if you are new here and want to use these.
And I thought I’ll add one for practicing eyebrows. Or scribbling facial features. I actually do that myself if I am not sure where I want to go with a character.
