Like many other art forms, tattoos have been around for a long time and as expected, they couldn’t remain untouched by technology progress. That’s even more the case now the tattoos are an industry – each year, more than 1,6 billion dollars are spent on tattoos in the U.S. alone, with 14% of Americans having at least one tattoo.
With progress, new styles of tattoos have emerged and one of the most popular new emerging style is that of 3D tattoos.
What makes 3D tattoos so special is their realistic, mind-boggling look. With 3D tattoos, not making mistakes is even more important than with regular style tattoos because everything contributes to the 3D illusion, even the smallest shade.
The new 3D tattoo style is basically defined by gradients and color changes but in the end, the most important style characteristic is the way the tattoo is able to play with our perception. And some artists can really take this to the extreme and create some amazing illusions with their 3D tattoo works. Let’s take a look at some incredible 3D tattoos!
