Turn Your Skin Into A Landmark With Architecture Tattoos

Soar above skylines, tiptoe among skyscrapers with these grand architecture-inspired tattoos featuring urban buildings, pagodas, and more.

Architecture tattoos have to be some of the most tedious tattoo designs an artist can work on. There's the symmetry and structure–otherwise it would turn out looking like a Dali tribute—and a bunch of other things best left to the architects. But it seems that some tattoo artists' quasi-architectural skills are quite strong, impressing us with their impeccable linework and eye for detail. Here are only some of the works by that talented bunch.

And you know what they say: If the body is a temple then for crying out loud, decorate the f-ck out of it!
