Quite a lot of us nowadays have tattoos, don’t we? It’s a bit of a fashion thing that kids in 30 years will probably laugh at us for, but still… We thought they were cool at the time, right? While those of us that are inked might have a dragon or celtic band or pin-up girl or little Chinese symbol, there are lots of people out there that go a lot further than that. We’ve got 25 examples here of some pretty extreme 3D tattoos. Some good, some scary. All weird.
Have a look at what we’re talking about:
1. The Lord of the Tattoos.
2. ‘There’s a rat inside you, eating all your organs…’ ‘Yeah, I know.’
3. Yet ANOTHER one of those beautiful women balancing candy on her head tattoos that you get nowadays.
4. ‘What a Wonderful Tattoo’, thinks Louis Armstrong.
5. That’s a nasty lovebite.
6. Don’t get into a foot race with this guy…
7. A rose tattoo by any other name…
8. Mirror, mirror, on the arm.
9. This gas mark 3D tattoo is particularly cool.
10. This one’s particularly creepy.
11. How well done is this nautically-themed 3D tattoo?
12. There are so many layers to this one. And so many levels of scariness!
13. Wow. Somebody likes Batman.
14. We love this pink rose. Although we’re not so sure we dig having a cupcake tattooed onto your skin forever.
15. Another one that opts for the gore angle. Brilliantly done, though.
16. Does anyone know a mechanic? This robot needs some work done!
17. Bleurgh. Terrifyingly realistic!
18. How three dimensional does this skull look?! Hugely impressive.
19. Kinda creepy.
21. TOP TIP: If you can’t afford a 3D tattoo like the one below, you can get a similar effect with a relatively inexpensive cheese grater.
22. ‘I’d like a tattoo on my my chest of a woman’s face being opened like a door by a frightened man.’ ‘Well, of course, sir.’
23. Music fans’ll love this one.
24. Another creepy one. This time featuring a doll’s face on a man’s hand.
25. Aaaaand here’s a 3D tattoo design of a handyman bursting out of a woman’s spine. Because why not?
A varied collection, we think you’d agree. Plenty that are cool. Plenty that are for fools.
