The strongest signature tattoo style we've seen in a while, there's no mistaking Martha Smith's whimsical dot work. From floral botanical blooms and bunnies to pet portraits and totally cute hedgehog pot plants (yup), the sky's the limit when it comes to romantic imagination here.

When you can name Rihanna and Cara Delevingne among your biggest fans, you know you've done something right. Inking everyone who's anyone, Bang Bang (as his friends call him) is the hottest tattoo artist right now. Turning his hand to anything from watercolour style splashes and tribal prints to hyper real portraits and rainbow Disney castles, he's the ultimate chameleon of the tattoo world.

Ultra pretty, indie inkings of foraged blossom, found shells, sharks and mountain tops make JuJu the place to go for a unique and emotive tattoo. Trust us, you'll want to add all of these to the Pinterest board.

One for the more hardcore tattoo fans out there, artist Maxime Buchi doesn't do ink by halves. Covering torsos in epically dark designs full of iconography and graphic lines, and enveloping legs in heavily shaded wings and gothic architecture, this is the place to go for a top to toe piece. Think long term art work rather than misguided doodle.

For this tattoo artist, the devil is in the detail. Want a crazily detailed historical portrait complete with jewelled crown inked? Delphine can do it. How about a perfectly symmetrical intricately tessellated graphic design? Yup, Delphine's your gal. Just check out her own ink – let's just say there's not much skin left…

Forget old hat tattoos that scream 'mistake', Liverpool cool kid Henbo is taking traditional tattoos and reinventing them for 2015. From typical seafaring motifs like pirate ships and giant squids to grim reapers and swallows, Henbo takes the trad and turns it on its head.

Now, we don't want to pick favourites, but when your son is as cute as Dr Woo's, it's hard not to. Moving on from THAT pout, Dr Woo's tattoo's are, to be frank, awesome. Super delicate, shaded illustrations without the thick, cartoon lines of traditional tarts, they look more like an image that happened to be printed on your skin, rather than a random picture you decided on when drunk. You know that legendary tattoo regret? Yeah, that doesn't happen when you go to Woo.
