30 Of The Most Epic 3D Tattoos

This isn’t the first post we’ve done about 3D tattoos, and it’s unlikely to be the last because the art is constantly evolving and it looks so damn cool.

Popularized by pioneers such as Jesse Rix and Winston The Whale, these works will make you look twice. Some look astonishingly real, as if there actually is a beautiful butterfly perched delicately on the skin. While others are mind-bending optical illusions that contort the body in ways that shouldn’t be possible.

So if you’re looking for inspiration for your next ink, why not consider adding another dimension? Scroll down below to check out this list of intricate and incredible designs, and let us know what you think in the comments!
