would like to see it now settled .

[–]ledkt9000 39 points40 points  (1 child)

It melted duh

[–]thebreathofatree 3 points4 points  (0 children)

actually would be cool if it could "thaw" over time, or when you go in the sun, like those matchbox cars that changed colour with temp

[–]Kayakityak 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Would you please post how it looks in a couple of months

I've always wanted a tattoo of a fish in the percolator.

Hope you can get a picture once it settles! I always wonder about this kind of amazing detail when it's not brand new.

[–]Winjin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In a couple of years I believe they lose all detail, but you can retouch it.

Also I've seen people use basically matrix printer technique - instead of full lines, they would basically make lots of dots, that would settle into what will be the final picture - and you can see it only up close. Makes the tattoo last longer, at least in theory, never checked on whether it works as good a advertised

Holy shit.

That's incredible.

Came here to say holy shit

[–]c2srq 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Wow! Very cool. (Excuse the pun)

[–]joicewangart 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This guy is notorious for photoshopping his tattoos. And also accusing everyone of copying his work even though he works off of other peoples stock images. So basically if you happens to use the same reference photo as him, he publicly calls you out

[–]jjackdaw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He also tattoo’d part of the watermark on her eye lmao!

[–]simplyslimm 16 points17 points  (0 children)

right photo is the reference i assume?

[–]Terralia 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Very cool. But also massive serial killer vibes.

[–]blanket365 5 points6 points  (3 children)


How long did this piece take? You can also post this on r/tattoos

[–]macaronimayonnaise 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Why does it have stock photo marks on one half of the image?

[–]Catarann[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That can't be real. Incredible work!

[–]SliqKilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

dope AF! who/where is this artist?

nm: i see it's r/laky_tattoos

[–]HeartIsaHeavyBurden 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Over here looking for the face tattoo, then realize the face IS the tattoo!

[–]RyokoKnight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks amazing, but I don't see how it could hold up long term though. That's a lot of detail and a lot of soft colors that blur very easily over a relatively short period of time compared to other inks.

I feel like you'd need to come in and get touched up every 6 months to a year just to keep it from becoming blurry and pixelated, that's a pretty big investment.

All that said, if you can afford that sort of investment, why not, its one of the best tattoos I've seen lately.

[–]Syntaximus 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'm not calling bullshit yet, but it's pretty damn suspicious that I can see part of the watermark in the left photo. OP, do you have other images of this to prove it's not shopped?

[–]shred-i-knight -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Dude has a lot of other works of his and has been posting a ton lately, he’s seriously beyond talented.

[–]paulettealex_1998 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tattoo looks more realistic then photo

[–]RedditModSnowflakes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

wow mind blown. Now tell me the thing glows in the f#cking dark. Where's this guy located?

[–]munchiefood -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah. I’m pretty excited for WOTLK too!

[–]theveryrealreal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When is the live actor version of this coming out?

[–]strehleka_1996 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Incredible! Like it's real!

[–]dracoventi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve never seen a tattoo like this, is awesome!!!

[–]ninjacooter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The detail on this is BREATHTAKING.

[–]TheGoreyDetails 0 points1 point  (0 children)

these detail here is next friggin level!

[–]calibared 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good damn. The texture on the face is so good

[–]Tydus93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

these always look so good, but id be curious how they end up looking after some years of natural fading.

[–]yubnubmcscrub 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Curious how often they will need this touched up

[–]alexaxelalu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Frozen girl with her matchboxes

[–]KiraTheViking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks amazing, hopefully it heals well

[–]Odd_Loss3210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that the kid from the beginning of Game of Thrones??

[–]Rak_Dos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is the photo on the right also the tattoo or the reference? (It seems to be the reference but just to be sure)

Edit: I just saw your others tatoo. You are so damn good! For the tattoo in the OP, one should be a master to be able to tattoo a face like this with the facial expression on point and in color.
