When you think of Disney Princesses, you probably associate them with elegance and charm. But there’s a side to our favorite fairy tale princesses that we’d likely never see – it’s an edgier punk/goth/hipster side that several artists have reimagined for us. The artists featured here include Italian artist Emmanuel Viola and American artist Joel Santana.
#1 Hipster Ariel
Artist Emmanuel Viola has reimagined Ariel as a modern-day hipster. Her tattoos feature Flounder, Sebastian and what looks like to be some of Ursula’s tentacles.
#2 Hipster Jasmine
Our favorite Middle Eastern princess looks fab as a hipster. Check out her very bold Rajah and Genie tattoos.
#3 Princess Leia
Princess Leia looks pretty bad-ass, but we’d expect nothing less. Of course, her tattoo features the symbol for the Rebel Alliance.
#4 Glam Cinderella
Not surprisingly, the hipster version of Cinderella is pretty glam. Notice how the tattoos of her birds and Gus look like they are a bit taken aback?
#5 Gothic Belle
Gothic Belle looks way to chic to be a bookworm, but looks can be deceiving.
#6 Hipster Elsa
Hipster Elsa has lots of neat piercings, but we’re mostly impressed with her streak of blue hair.
#7 Tattoo artist Aurora
Aurora isn’t just sporting some tattoos – she is a tattoo artist herself!
#8 Pinup Snow
Pinup Snow White is one of our favorites. Aside from her rocking her awesome bandanna and tattoos, she is also drinking something Apple-flavored.
#9 Tinker Belle
Tinker Belle might not be a Disney Princess, but with that awesome back tattoo, we just had to include her in the list.
#10 Aladdin inking up Jasmine
Aladdin is inking up Jasmine with henna tattoos and a tattoo of Rajah. Who knew that Aladdin was so artistic?
#11 Ariel getting inked
We have no idea who is inking Ariel, could it be Prince Eric?
#12 Artist Snow White
That is some super-creepy looking apple that Snow White is painting, but she does know what they are like from first-hand experience.
#13 Belle getting inked by the Beast
Here Belle is getting inked up by the Beast while she’s busy reading, of course.
#14 Pocahontas getting inked by John Smith
Here Pocahontas is getting inked by her love interest, John Smith.
#15 Tiana getting inked
Here Tiana is getting inked by not one, but two voodoo-dolls. Is one of the dolls supposed to be Dr. Facilier?
#16 Sewing Cinderella
This version of Cinderella is all tattooed up. She’s also using an automatic sewing machine. We bet she sells her work on Etsy.
#17 Alice in Wonderland as a tattoo artist
Ok, Alice is not considered to be a Disney Princess, but she is considered to be a Disney heroine. This scene featuring her as a tattoo artist for the mad hatter is trippy and makes her worthy of inclusion.
#18 Tinkel Belle getting tattooed
Last but not least, we have another Disney heroine who is not actually a Disney Princess. This time it’s Tinker Belle and she has to go under a magnifying glass in order to get tattooed.
