We’ve already featured questionable tattoos here more than once. It’s only fair that we also salute some impressive tattoo designs. Today we’re looking at optical illusion tattoos–that is, tattoos designed to look 3D. These are so well conceived and executed that they look real.
1. Holy Diver
It might look like that’s a tattoo of a snappily dressed businessman about to jump off a building, but actually he’s about to jump into a swimming pool, which is tattooed on the man’s butt. “Swimming pool butt” might sound weird to us but I guarantee it’s not even top 50 for that tattoo artist.
2. The Button Down
He can be well-dressed without even wearing a shirt! Let’s see the yacht club kick him out of the dining room NOW!
Every tattoo is a statement, and this man is saying “I don’t follow the rules of safe camping.”
4. It’s All Latin To Me
Do NOT confuse pluperfect with subjunctive around this guy.
5. The Android
They walk among us!
6. A Dumb Alien
Human chest cavities aren’t that big. You shouldn’t get lost inside one, alien.
7. Bad Kitty
The upside is, when this guy takes off his shirt, he gets the beach all to himself.
8. Apple Of My Eye
Can tattoos of eyes get pinkeye? Looks like it.
9. Lace ‘Em Up
For the other foot she plans to get a tattoo of a Croc.
10. 2001: A Tattoo Odyssey
If you touch the center of that tattoo, you’ll travel to another dimension.
11. The Amazing Spiderman
Once I had a sunburn that peeled exactly like this.
12. This one CAN’T be a tattoo.
That’s clearly a wooden leg carved by someone from The Hobbit.
13. He’s Watching You
It’s no fun playing hide and seek with this guy.
14. Oh, hello!
What’s near and dear to this man’s heart? Hipster Mr. Clean, of course.
15. And finally, The Driver
Do you disclose this tattoo on a first date? You’d have to, right?
