I constantly get asked about my tattoos, so much so that ill soon be doing an entire series on each one of my pieces, the meaning behind them, and all the artist info. My newest piece came from the incredibly talented Marisol Preciado at Mission Tattoo in Riverside, CA.
Marisol specializes in kawaii, cute, Disney, Otaku Tattoos and art. How someone is able to capture the exact image and boldness of color is seriously beyond me! But Marisol does it with such ease.
I first came across her IG because my best friend had recently gotten the cutest tattoo done by Marisol and once I saw it I instantly was all up in her DMs haha.
Now I have a list 50 miles long of art work I plan/want to get done so when I am able to get tattooed, its not hard for me to find something I want or some up with ideas. But this time around I really wanted to get a tattoo with my best friend. I sent over ideas to Marisol and let her know what I was looking for and sort of described me and my best friend briefly and somehow with all the information I gave her she came up with the most perfect design of our tattoo! The minute I saw it I KNEW that it was just perfect!
We had to reschedule our appointments a couple times due to life happening for the both of us and Marisol was soon flexible and understanding! Something I greatly appreciate in anyone i get tattooed from. I suffer from SEVERE anxiety so my mind has to be in the right place to get any kind of work done or else I panic... annoying I know! But Marisol was really sweet about everything.
We showed up to our appointments and I literally GAGGED over her studio inside the tattoo shop! Its pink, colorful, Disney/Anime/Kawaii MAGIC! I could live in there! lol. Marisol's style and spirit just bounces off those walls and its seriously one of the most funnest places I've ever been tatted.
I looked through her books while I waited for her to draw set up and just fell more and more in love with her work. Here a few photos of some of my favorite pieces she has done!
HOW STINKING CUTE RIGHT?! If you think thats awesome, just WAIT till you see what my next pieces are going to be! You are going to GAG!
We tried a couple different spots but decided on a place that would be seen more than most. I have such a thing with not being able to see my own tattoos lol Like if I'm paying money for any art work i want to be able to see it! Makes sense? lol
Now, I know a lot of my girls reading this who have issues with showing their arms will understand. Its not that I have issues showing my arms, but lets kept real.. these mugs are big lol. From weight loss and weight gain and just being plain sexy AF lol my arms are big! What can I say! So I was a little worried about getting tattooed there, I'm not gonna lie. Would the tattoo look flabby? Would it sit weird once my arm is hanging there? Will it hurt more than normal cuz its like..fat skin? lol These are the thoughts I had... and Marisol answered ALLLL my crazy questions and set my mind at complete and total ease! Im telling you, she is an all around gem! i mean JEM! (Get it, like Jem..and the holograms...anyone?)
How cute right?! A Mickey Mouse hand holding the perfect gooey slice of Pizza! Totally depicts mine and my best friends friendship. Disney and pizza! Forever and ever! I love you tony! <3
One thing I will say is that I have never been tattooed by someone so fast! I figured it would take around 2 hours from first arriving to leaving but she literally took an hour TOPS and that is with us gabbing away! haha
Marisol seriously has one of the coolest most beautiful vibes and spirits. And did I mention how beautiful she is?! Like blam blickidy blam! Curves of gorgeousness! Im trying to get her to do plus size modeling, thats how serious the beauty is!
EEEKKK! Its seriously perfect! I mean the fading of the colors and blending all into one another is seriously a yummy dream! I get stopped constantly and asked about this tattoo, especially at Disneyland! Disney lovers totally appreciate gooey cheese! haha.
Final thoughts?? GO FOLLOW MARISOL! not only that, BOOK AN APPOINTMENT! You will not be disappointed! And I cant WAIT to show you all what my next pieces are that she has created for me... you are going to GAG!!!
