The Chicago-based illustrator Timothy John Shumate has been creating a series of fan art showing the Disney Princesses reimagined as the tatted badasses they could be.

This is not to say that the princesses weren't badass on their own, but just check them out in this colorful, wide-eyed pinup style and tell me that they don't look even more awesome than before:

If you love Timothy John Shumate's work, you're in luck! His tatted Disney series, along with other works, are available for purchase as prints, pillows, t-shirts, and more are available at his Society6 page. Please join me as I wave a sad goodbye to my paycheck as I continue to fuel my intense love of Disney.

Not only do I love how these images portray how badass these ladies are, but it also shows just beautiful tattoos can be. I'm a huge fan! Which of the princesses shown in the series is your favorite?
