Nail techs (and others in the beauty industry) are a creative bunch. We've rounded up some nail-themed tattoos for techs who show their love for their career on their skin.

If you have a nail-themed or beauty-themed tattoo, we'd love to add you to our photo gallery. E-mail a picture, along with your name, salon name, and location, to editor@nailsmag.com and we'll add it to the gallery.
