We had 3D tattoos, we had discreet tattoos, now it's time for 'moving' tattoos. For the record, these designs aren't actually moving, but it's what the Internet has been calling them, so we just have to make do.

On the surface, it's a simple procedure: artists ink people's bodies so that when they bend their arms or legs, for example, the drawings appear to be changing their shape. Like a lady on a person's knee, bowing every time the joint moves. Or a skull between someone's finger, opening up its mouth whenever they spread their palm. But in reality, these tattoos are much more intricate.

It may sound a bit confusing, but check out this list compiled by Bored Panda, and you'll immediately understand what I'm talking about. It's really awesome.

To learn more about what goes into creating these beautiful designs interacting with the human body, we spoke to Leor Price, a tattoo artist based in Tel Aviv, Isreal, who is responsible for a particularly impressive acrobat tattoo.

"This tattoo was a very special one for me. I did it on a really good friend of mine and the whole idea was kind of a brainstorm product," Leor told Bored Panda. "He wanted a tattoo that shows how we all depend on each other, so we built the whole idea together, I then sketched it out in my own style and we were set to go!"

Leor has been a tattoo artist since 2016. After getting her degree in graphic design, she opened her own private studio a year ago, and has been loving every part of her career. "These 'moving' tattoos aren't harder to do than regular ones. They are, however, harder to plan. You need to know exactly where to place the stencil so that the tattoo moves perfectly when it's done."

The artist said these tattoos have a bigger chance of fading if you tattoo them right on the joints and the client doesn't take care of his tattoo properly. Or just if the tattoo artist isn't a professional and doesn't know what he's doing in general. Other than that, they should age pretty much just like any other tattoo.

As for Leor, she loves doing these 'moving' tattoos. To her, they're an additional layer or meaning and purpose on the body and she can't wait to do more of them.
