Mindblowing 3D Tattoos Of All Time
Although 3D technology used to be considered a novelty, these days you can see almost any film that hits your local movie theater in three dimensions for only a few extra bucks. While the whole 3D fad may sound like old news, however, we assure you that there are a few art forms in which the use of 3D technology is still pretty impressive. While you might not think much of being offered the chance to see a 3D movie, or a 3D piece of artwork, these 3D tattoos are pretty awesome to behold.
A tattoo parlor might not be the first place you’d expect to see a bunch of cool 3D artwork, but there are tons of great 3D tattooists out there. We’ve put together a collection of killer 3D tattoos that’ll knock your socks off. These 3D tattoos are not only impressive because of their realism and intricacy, but also because the artist was able to create the illusion that the tattoo is coming to life – without the need for 3D glasses.
Check out the wide range of pieces that these tattoo artists have been able to work their 3D magic into. An extra dimension can transform a normal butterfly into an impressively realistic piece of inked art. Adding a three-dimensional look to a tattoo can also add a surprisingly gruesome edge to pieces that look like they’re bursting right through the client’s skin. Whether your aesthetic falls more in line with the whimsical, or leans a bit more on the side of bold, dramatic, hardcore tattoo design, we guarantee that there’s something for everyone in this awesome collection of 3D tattoos.
