Brain-Teaser Optical Illusion Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Brainiacs have always enjoyed mind tricks such as optical illusions and indeed, artists enjoy playing with our perception of reality.

Optical illusion tattoos are quite a curiosity, and your eyes and brain have been fooled already, but you can't hep asking for more... Inspired by traditional art, with designs inspired by painter Arcimboldo, illustrator Maurits Cornelius Escher, contemporary artist Octavio Ocampo or jumping on the new trends of street art, such as anamorphic effects (read more about it in this article on street-artist Odeith), these optical illusions tattoos will amaze you.
