The Mythical, Mysterious, and Magical








 Eugenio Recuenco/ weheartit/ fashion toast/ Camilla Akrans/ Zink Magazine

There is something strangely captivating about fables, myths and fairy tales.  I am naturally drawn to these types of stories as there is something darker and foreboding about them. In my first year of fashion school, (which seems like ages ago), I used fairy tales as a source of inspiration.

I am now re-visiting this body of work and diving a little bit further.  These are just a few photos I've been collecting as sources of inspiration. Each photo draws me in and tells a story of its own.

For a daily dose of inspiration, please follow us on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook.

  6. Tattoos are a horrible thing to do to a young beautiful body. They are always regretted in later life. Your photos are disturbing; like a nightmare.

    1. How can you judge something that you obviously don't have any experience with?

  13. I'm a tattooist, and I'm here to say please don't copy that dandilion>flock of birds design, I've tattooed that thing (or slight variations) on well over three dozen people, even on two unrelated people on the same day. One girl bought in a tracing and said she had drawn it, haha! Anyway steer clear of that thing, or you'll meet someone at a party wearing the same design and it will make a very awkward evening. Get something original, or at least classic (like those famour flickr blossoms) and not so recognisable!

  15. these pics are so beautiful!!! People need to loosen up on the tattoos. Just because THREE DOZEN people out of the BILLIONS of people in the world got the dandilion>flock of birds design doesn't mean that people shouldn't get it. There are tons of people with incorrect Chinese characters on their body but people still get them. Personally it would be pretty awesome to meet someone with the same tattoo at a party because that means I just met someone with the same great taste as me. Wonderful way to strike up a conversation!
