Nastasya Ustinova was killing portrait tattoos well before she made headlines for her insane LeBron James leg tattoo

Before 21-year-old Russian tattoo artist Nastasya Ustinova made headlines for her insane LeBron James leg tattoo, Cardi B promised free tickets for life after seeing the tattoo Ustinova did on a fan.

On her Instagram, Cardi shared her appreciation for the artist's work, writing "You get free cardi tickets forever and a supporting friend" alongside a video of the tattoo. Only time will tell if Cardi gets to meet the supportive tattooer, who's also inked portraits of Bhad Bhabie, 6ix9ine, and Juice WRLD.

Ustinova is making waves in the tattoo industry for her highly-detailed realistic portrait work. From killer scenes of athletes on the court to impressive celebrity portraits like The Rock, Childish Gambino and Kurt Cobain, it seems there’s no tattoo Nastasya Ustinova can’t do. Oh yeah, she slays in black-and-grey and color. She also plays with mixed media and we are all about it.
