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 their 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 the star of Little Mermaid 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 Leia the Rebel Princess
Princess Leia looks pretty badass, but we’d expect nothing less. Of course, her tattoo features the symbol of the Rebel Alliance.
#4 Goth Princess Cinderella with Dive Glamour Vibe
Not surprisingly, the goth 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 Princess Belle
This gothic princess version of Belle looks way too 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 Princess Aurora
Aurora isn’t just sporting some tattoos – she is a tattoo artist herself!
#8 Pin Up Snow White
Pin Up Snow White is one of our favorites. Aside from rocking an awesome bandana and colored tattoos, she is also aptly drinking an Apple-flavored beverage
#9 Emo Dark Fairy Tinkerbell
Tinkerbell might not be a Disney Princess, but with that awesome back tattoo, we just had to include her in the list. If you love all about Neverland, then this art piece makes a great Macbook decal.
#10 Aladdin and Jasmine as Tattooed Disney Characters
Aladdin is inking up Jasmine with henna tattoos and a tattoo of Rajah. Who knew that Aladdin was so artistic?
#11 Gothic Girl 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 Alternative Gothic 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 Tattoed by John Smith
Here Pocahontas is getting inked by her love interest, John Smith.
#15 Frog Princess 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 gothic Disney version of Cinderella is all tattooed up. She’s also using an automatic sewing machine. We bet she sells her work on Etsy.
#17 Tattoo Artist Alice
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 Bell Getting tattooed
Last but not least, we have another Disney heroine who is not actually a Disney Princess. This time it’s Tinkerbell and she has to go under a magnifying glass in order to get tattooed.
If you love Disney characters and the goth, punk, and hipster aesthetics, then the above princess art pieces could be the perfect design inspiration for your next princess shirt, vinyl decal, phone case, car accessory, bumper sticker, and other printable stickers.
