Body Doodle

These are not tattoos. These are not even henna tattoos. These are spontaneous and improvised doodles done with a pen or marker while (for the most part) sitting around bored one day. Found via flickr, see and read about them here

"Got kinda bored earlier so decided i'd doodle on my girlfriends tummy." -- Ross Scrivener

"tried to copy my Government binder. =]" -- Jasmine Jinx

Unusual but awesome, all the people make all the same tattoos, it is something like tattoo fashion :) the author is so creative :))

very interesting. i have never thought of it as an art formed before, but now that i think of it, i have seen some rather interesting doodles on skin. (i tattooed one of my doodles on my big toe.)

I love them. Great hand-done tattooing. Here's my version:
