Mind-Blowing Tattoo Distortions and Optical Illusions by James McKenna

Amazing and unusual tattoos that'll mess up your brain by James McKenna- tattoo artist from Fremantle, Western Australia.

At first glance you'll think it's simply a traditional or neo traditional tattoo. But if you look closer, you'll realize there's more to it! There are way more elements in the negative spaces and images hidden into the main tattoo.

This will certainly mess with you a bit- but in the fun way! Hats off to James McKenna- the mad brains behind these unusual and cleverly composed tattoos you thought wouldn't even exist. I am certainly digging the distortions and optical illusions, and the way they were composed and applied strongly on skin. For those of you who adore the strange stuff and want to get a tattoo that's unique and mind-blowing, McKenna's tattoo art can be a perfect match!
