A majority of the tattoo world may be filled with guys, but there's nothing quite like a girl who can create some insane ink art. So it only makes sense that we follow our favorite female tattoo artists on Instagram for a daily dose of impressive aesthetics and general badassery. The 10 gals we chose take it to the next level with their rad creations and just scrolling through their feeds is enough to have us itching to go under the needle.

With styles ranging from minimalist to retro cool to bold and bright, these artists will add just the right amount of ink to your Instagram feed. Click through the gallery to see their work, and don't be surprised if you find yourself scheduling an appointment to get inked yourself.
