10 Colorful, Insanely Realistic Tattoos By Yan Vilks

This Eastern European artists' work is truly remarkable.

Yan Vilks is a tattooer hailing from Belarus- a small country in Eastern Europe neighboring Russia- whose realistic tattoos are the stuff dreams are made of. 

Using a vibrant color palette and an almost painterly technique combined with the most intricate details, Vilks creates some of the most beautiful tattoos around. 

From majestic landscapes to stunning portraits to some of the most impeccable lightning and flames we've ever seen, Vilks' portfolio has a little bit of everything. Check out 10 of my favorites below.
