Like tattoos? Looking for inspiration? Then take a look at these trippy designs to see why these 3D-inspired tattoos are making the internet all giddy with excitement.
The man behind the mind-bending trend is Winston the Whale (a.k.a Dave), a Portland-based tattoo artist who's taking body art to a whole new dimension. He came upon the idea by chance while tattooing a client last year. The guy didn't know what design he wanted and so Winston suggested a skull. The guy asked if Winston could make it a 3D skull (as you would) and voila, the 3D tattoo was born. Deciding to take a picture and post it onto Instagram, the artist soon found himself inundated with requests for 3D tattoos.
Just to be clear, the tattoos don't actually work when you don a pair of 3D glasses. They are instead a playful homage to the days of good old-fashioned red-and-blue specs. Feeling nostalgic yet?
