Tattoo designs have come a long way from the simplistic tribal ornaments to everything sailor-themed to real artworks that we can see today. Now, the tattoo art mastery has advanced to the point where tattoo artists can create convincing and sometimes even photo-realistic optical illusions on their clients' skin. These tattoo ideas in this list are just a few of the amazing tattoos out there that seem to twist and bend on the wearer's skin.

Do you have an optical illusion or a 3D tattoo? Have you seen one? In any case, we'd love to see your pictures of 3D optical illusion body art and invite you to vote for your favorites in our tattoo gallery!

This one is amazing. What a great way to make something cool out of something that would otherwise be considered by some to be disfiguring
