When it comes popularity, we have seen many innovative 3D tattoos keeping emerging and catching one’s eye. Unlike the sculpture, installations, the artwork can be touched and viewed from all sides. Despite 2D in dimension, the tattoo can be made real in terms of style. For example, the lace ribbon tattoo above, if you don’t walk closely and have a touch, it’s hard to tell it’s a tattoo.
What is 3D tattoo
From abstract to surrealism, the tattooing can encompass a great variety of art styles. 3D art itself is the term used for computer art, which means the work is produced by special software through precise calculation. 3D tattoo is actually 2-dimensional tattoo that gives you a 3-dimensional optical illusion that it is so realistic. It is the representation of photorealistic art form in tattooing. It is through the realistic art form that we can express to the world our feelings and creativity in the straightforward manner.
3D graphic artwork could be easily created by using 3D computer techniques while 3D tattoo design mostly relies on the skill of the tattoo artist. It is precise work to make a realistic tattoo on human canvas. On the other hand, there’s only one chance to have a trial for one person. So it’s best to start from 3D drawings if you don’t have real reference available.
It’s always appealing, incredible when you see tattoos rendered in 3D effect. A lot of 3D tattoos are small pieces which are meaningful and look cute, e.g., 3D butterfly, lace, ribbon, lock, etc. Some 3D tattoos are large pieces, e.g., skulls, animal portraits, which look stunning and realistic. People who get 3D tattoos expect to build a strong visual presentation of their tattoos.
In today’s post, I’d like to show you 70+ of the really amazing 3d tattoo designs that I’ve came across and I think you’ll like them too.
