Movies and television shows are special as they allow us to immerse ourselves in a different world and act as an escape from our own lives.
We build relationships with these characters and feel an emotional connection to them - much like family and friends in real life.
So, it's no real surprise that we're seeing so many of these characters tattooed on the skin of people around us. And now with the amazingly talented realism artists out there, these portraits have never looked better.
Kristian Kimonides is one of the talented artists lending his craft to create incredible tattoos of our favorite TV and movie characters. It will never cease to amaze me how one can take needles and ink and produce such life-like tattoos.
