It was a great surprise for me to see some 3D tattoos that appeared quite freaking, yet unbelievably creative. As most of them showed skulls, spiders and other odd symbols, I didn’t want to include them in my topic, and preferred to introduce really artistic and mind blowing work.
“The canvas that holds the art” was my basic concept when I collected these photos. I chose 3D tattoos that belong to nature, like butterflies, a tiger, a lion, a huge pine tree, and a sweet lady bug. The other designs include a beautiful eye, a pattern of wooden artwork, a stone statue design and Snow white story design.
With a creative talent, a colorful contrast and some shadows, the 3D tattoos looked quite real as if the butterflies have just landed or the lion is about to attack. The most beautiful ones, in my point of view, are the eye and the stone statue. The eye is more than expressive in its quiet, deep look of hope while the stone statue reminds us of the glorious Greek Gods.
Such designs were quite appealing for me, as the nature designs look beautiful as permanent art while the others can surely leave an artistic impact instead of a creepy feeling.
Some people, however, may prefer a naughty tattoo, or a frightful design, like most of the vampire and gothic drawings, but in fact, such things are not suitable a permanent view on the human skin. They are more of a temporary Halloween body art.
