These heavily tattooed models are famous for their intricate body art.

They've spent years covering their bodies with jaw-dropping designs, which is probably why many struggle to even remember a time when their skin was clear.

It's pretty hard to picture what they looked like before they braved tattooists' needles.

As without the tatts, a lot of them are totally unrecognisable.

Some have also described how getting inked has helped them to love their bodies after previously battling insecurities.

Here, Daily Star takes a look at three stunning tattoo transformations – from Monami Frost to Briana Todd and Angela Mazzanti…

Monami Frost

YouTuber Monami Frost has 1.6 million followers on Instagram and she never fails to delight fans with her tatts.

Most of her body is covered after she started getting them aged 14 – and she even has the word devotion tattooed above her eyebrow.

But last year, she revealed what she looked like before getting inked.

She wrote: “13 year old me vs 26 year old me. The glow up is real. I never thought I would post and show anyone that photo or any of the others from that time.”

And in a YouTube video called ‘How tattoos changed my life’, Monami said: “Tattoos for me make me feel like a piece of art.”

She also said it made her more accepting of her body.

Monami added: “When I was developing body dysmorphia, looking at my own legs I felt like they were ugly and when I would have them tattooed I would feel like they are becoming more beautiful.

“I don’t see them as big chunks of flesh anymore – I just see them as a piece of art.

“That’s such a weird thing how I’m describing it but that’s how I feel.”

Briana Todd

Model Briana Todd recently underwent a dramatic transformation after adding countless intricate tattoos to her body since 2016.

She posted the difference on Instagram to her 537,000 followers with the caption: “2016 vs 2021.”

One fan gushed: “This is goals! I’d love to be a walking piece of art.”

The before snap shows Briana, who is from Connecticut, US, with some tatts on her arms and hipbone.

Fast forward five years and she has now completed her arm sleeves while also covering her stomach and thighs.

She also added flawless designs on her hands and eye-popping patterns on her neck.

Her transformation post racked up almost 50,000 likes.

Angela Mazzanti

When rapper and influencer Angela Mazzanti posted a before and after shot of herself pre and post tattoos, nobody believed it was her.

The Californian model has 677,000 followers on Instagram and regularly shares photographs of her colourful body art.

But she stunned fans when she gave them a glimpse of what she used to look like.

She wrote on Instagram: “In all honesty I can’t believe how much my life has changed since modelling.

“My biggest advice to anyone wanting to get into is don’t ever stop, and shoot as much as you can.”

One gobsmacked fan replied: “Wow. I would never have known that was you, I like your tatts.”

Someone else wrote: “No way that’s you.”

In a recent TikTok cilp, Angela said her most painful tattoos to get were the palm of her hands, followed by her stomach, armpits, collar bones and knees.
