  • Tattoo Mystique


Angelique has built a deserved reputation as an artist and tattooist with a distinctive style, an enchanting visual language, and a fresh vision of history that has attracted sparkling fanfare and followers internationally.

Aspects of Victoriana sit alongside stylish Flappers; flamboyant Harlequins look death in the face; South Sea beauties juxtapose with glimmering Hollywood sirens; cake-popping lovelies nest by half-woman/ half-animal creatures -- all in a crisp, boldly outlined style that references traditional tattoo flash with a feminine touch.

This second volume documents a whole new collection of artworks, glimpses into Angelique's personal collection, marvelous photographs of Angelique presenting the charms of her hometown Amsterdam, an introduction by internationally renown artist Mike Giant, and a comprehensive interview with Angelique. Tattoo Mystique takes us on an entrancing spin through the dreamy streets, dark alleyways, romantic boudoirs and mysterious coffee shoppes of Angelique's world of mystique.
