Street Artist Banksy Inspired Nail Art

As one of the most subversive artists, street or traditional, Banksy’s graffiti epigrams may undoubtedly provoke lengthy conversations of what his interpretation is conveying, along seeking to challenge your initial point of view.

His work as garnered a cult-like respect around the world.

I thought it was really cool and did a bit more searching to see who else got the Banksy bug for their tips.
