This artist advocates sex positivity with her stunning NSFW tattoos

24-year-old artist Brittny Abad promotes body- and sex- positivity with tattoos that are tastefully NSFW.

The Portland-based tattooist grew up in an environment where talking about sexuality is taboo. So she pursued drawing as a way to express herself and her feelings of “lust, love, and loneliness.”

The result of her creative exploration is an art style that focuses on the female form with a touch of surrealism and eroticism.

In an interview with Konbini, she explained how her obsession with love and lust has led her to advocating sex positivity.

“Sex is awesome; all it takes is a mutual attraction and some body parts. We all love it but nobody wants to talk about it – let alone, see it. I think it’s negligent to pass off that part of our lives as unimportant and unworthy for the public forum.”

If you’re looking to get something a little less risqué, she does create other tattoos that carry the same themes she espouses with her usual body of work.

“If there’s anything I hope people take away from my work, it’s to let go of their inhibitions and allow themselves to be happy – explore things that others may view as taboo or inappropriate, because in the end, their opinions don’t matter.

“My art and essentially my life would never would have become what it is now if I hadn’t let that happen for myself. There is nothing more important. Life is too short to give a fuck about things that don’t make you feel good. So find whatever it is you like and go enjoy it to pieces!”
