Not-So-Crazy Cat Lady

Polish artist Joanna Świrska A.K.A. DŻO LAMA describes herself as a painter, tattoo artist, traveler, and prospector. I want to focus today on her wonderfully-composed tattoo designs. Her sensitive combinations of flora and fauna, splashed with color, are really striking and unique.

“My biggest muse is psychedelia. My visions inspire the work, a controlled mess of surrealism with a lot of bright colors… My dreams come true every day.” -Joanna Świrska

I know that there can be a lot of angst and pain involved in the creation of art, but I secretly believe that some of the most beautiful works are made by who are made happy by what they do. Świrska’s favorite subject is cats, and her feline designs are particularly lovely. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

  1. Great designs. I like her style. The detailed line work with the pop of colour is really effective. If I show these to my cat crazy kids, they’ll end up wanting to be covered in cat tattoos.

  3. Was that a raccoon in the blue one….or a cat with a mask? Some incredible work.

  4. As gorgeous as they are, I’d prefer them on the wall, not on my skin. (I’m squeamish, what can I say! 😀 )

  5. Those cats remind me of the Miyazaki film, The Cat Returns. A favorite of mine.
