Color Realism Tattoos by Mat Valles

You won't find the usual cast of characters in these tattoos.

Mat Valles is a color realism tattoo artist at Blue Panda Tattoo in El Paso, Texas.

His portfolio features portraits, realistic renderings of wild animals and other still life imagery. One tattoo that especially caught my eye was a ripped skin and American flag piece. The ripped skin effect is a tough one to pull off, but Valles manages to add his artistic touch and make it look quite realistic. 

If you're anywhere near Texas, then Mat Valles is definitely one to see for your next color realism tattoo. 

These Vivid Color Realism Tattoos by Pepa Heller are also stunning and will definitely provide you with some inspiration!
