Spotlight Gallery: This Week's Mind-Shattering Color Realism

Spotlight Gallery: This Week's Mind-Shattering Color Realism
Tattoo Artists1 min Read

Every single day we are blown away by the photorealistic tattoos artists are creating. Here are just a few that blew our hair back.

As someone who couldn't draw a convincing stick figure to save their life, color realism tattoos are completely unfathomable to me. It seems impossible that there are tattoo artists capable of creating tattoos that are almost indistinguishable from actual photographs, the main difference being that people start to get a little creeped out when you stare longingly at their tattoo for too long. 

It's impossible to look at this tattoo by Alex Legaza without craving a cold one. (Via IG - alexlegaza_la) #colorrealism #beer
Is it spring? This cardinal by Jamie Schene thinks so. (Via IG - jamie_schene) #colorrealism #cardinal #bird #JamieSchene
