Reality in Black and Grey by Cigla

These hyper-realistic tattoos by Cigla will have you questioning the very definition of reality.

German tattoo pioneer Cigla has a penchant for blurring the lines between reality and tattoo. Thankfully for us, he has chosen to make these works in black and grey so our minds aren't completely blown to smithereens.

Cigla's hyper-realistic tattoos take many forms, from representations of nature, to portrait tattoos that are nearly identical to the subject matter.

That comparison is nearly indistinguishable. It's completely understandable how a person could get confused between the real deal and the art. Uncanny!
