The Queen of Mean

Jes from Tough Love NYC is the proud owner of this Queen of Hearts, who looks just like the one in the original illustrations. The colors are amazing — she even has rosy cheeks and a red nose.

Painting the Roses Red; We're Painting the Roses Red

Jes from Tough Love NYC is also the brains behind these poor, doomed cards. Too bad they're going to lose their heads.

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

We love that this tattoo is on a leg — it makes Alice's constant state of motion seem more realistic.

House of Cards

Alice surrounded by many of the other most interesting characters from the story.

Drink Me

The quote tattooed here is not only insightful but also a powerful coming-of-age statement.

Disney Girl

A Disney version of Alice and the Cheshire Cat.

Beg Pardon!

This rendition of the croquet scene is based on John Tenniel's original illustrations.

Only Words

Kirsten got this calligraphic tattoo, which comes from a speech by the Queen of Hearts in chapter nine of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Kristen was about to graduate college and said the quote was "a great reminder for me before I enter the real world."

Bread and Butterflies

So whimsical!

Your Highness

Kate, who sports this tattoo, also has a Drink Me bottle farther up her arm. She's planning on getting an entire sleeve.

Tea Party

Everyone from the Mad Hatter to the Cheshire Cat is portrayed on this tattoo sleeve.

Go Ask Alice

Jenn from Sarenity Tattoo in Fort Gratiot, MI, created this lovely pen-and-ink-style Alice for her sister Jessica.

10 Inches High

The shadowing on Alice's apron transforms this tattoo from a basic illustration to a more significant work of art.

Mad as a March Hare

Jenn also created this great March Hare.

That's One Relaxed Rabbit

This is what the White Rabbit does on his weekends, apparently (hey, I'm not judging).

Curiouser and Curiouser

Holly Azzara [3] created this amazing full-back tattoo done in the Disney style. If you look closely, you can see almost all the characters from the movie done exactly as you remember them.

Do You Play Croquet?

This tattoo references the silly croquet scene at the Queen of Hearts' castle from the Disney film.
