If you’re partial to cute clothing-clad animals, mermaids and tattoos, look no further. Polish tattoo artist Bianka Szlachta has you(r tattoo plans) covered.

Which one would you get: a cat eating a pizza, a boxer cat, or a dog drinking coffee from a Chemex? All of these, and more, are drawn and tattooed by Polish artist Bianka Szlachta from Katowice. Her Instagram account serves as a catalogue of her works — minimalistic, with crooked lines and unmistakable character.

She describes her works as belonging to the ignorant style of tattooing, which originated from the French subway graffiti scene, and looks DIY and naive. The style has been getting increasingly popular in the tattoo underground — even Scarlett Johanson has one!
