Tattoos are big business, but for every one of us who takes the plunge and commits to a permanent design, there’s another who would prefer the freedom of temporary versions that express their individual taste without being a lifelong fixture.

If you are in the market for some permanent ink, the WGSN beauty team has rounded up the tattoo artists (and yes these designs look like serious artwork) who are inspiring us right now.

Log into Instagram, screen grab and make your appointment ASAP to claim your next body tattoo.
