Amsel…the tattoo artist!

I’ve written about how Richard Amsel was far more than just an illustrator of movie posters and magazine covers. He was an aspiring animator, photographer, and even an impromptu makeup artist for friends and family members.

But in at least once instance, Amsel created various tattoo designs…and for a very high-profile client.

I don’t know the history behind how Cher commissioned the artist to come up with these sketches, but they’re a fascinating look into 80’s era iconography.

The man’s creative outlet was undeniably full of surprises.
