What would Kate Middleton and Prince William look like as children of the punk movement, wearing purple hair and head-to-toe tattoos? Or Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe? Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall has some ideas. The artist is reponsible for reimaginging our favorite celebrities as tattoo-happy individuals, thereby transforming the public images we have come to know so well.

In an interview with NBC's Today, the 36-year-old Randall spoke of his process. "I taught myself Photoshop and thus began a slight obsession with seeing out of pure curiosity what some of my favorite iconic personalities would look like perhaps if they were in a parallel universe or took another path in life. Really I just let my imagination run wild," he said.

He published the images on his Tumblr and the Instagram feed, Indiangiver, features his work. According to the Instagram account, the photographs are not for sale and only for visual enjoyment, however you can contact the artist about purchasing via his Tumblr page. Randall's work completely challenges the celeb's persona, though it's amazing how the tattoos look somewhat natural on some of the stars (we're seriously digging Marilyn Monroe with tatted sleeves).

Some of the stars Randall reimagined lived during a time when women in the U.S. considered the body art a cultural no-no. During the early to mid 1900s, heavily tattooed women appeared in circuses. One of the first female tattoo artists in America, Maud Wagner, was an aerialist and contortionist.

Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
