Though people are now getting more open-minded about tattoos and piercings, these forms of body art still hold a negative stigma, especially in the Western world. For instance, there is a false notion that people with body tattoos and piercings have all been incarcerated. Some individuals with such body art are also being mislabeled as promiscuous, attention seekers, and even masochists.

Because of this strong prejudice against people with tattoos and piercings, it isn’t that surprising that Disney hasn’t introduced a heavily tattooed and pierced princess yet. Though Pocahontas has a red ink around her right bicep, that tattoo is a symbolic tribal tattoo, which is arguably more accepted by the public than the purely decorative ones.

While Disney has helped destigmatize tattoos with the introduction of Dwayne Johnson’s heavily tatted character Maui in the 2016 film Moana, it remains unclear if or when the studio will introduce a Disney Princess with excessive tattoos and piercings.

Luckily, fans don’t have to wait for Disney to make the big move, as there are a number of talented digital artists that have already reimagined the beloved Disney Princesses as tattoo- and piercing-loving gals. Browse the slideshow above to see some of the amazing fan art by Italian artist Emmanuel Viola, Malaysian graphic designer Ephrem Rokk, and more.
