Incredible Realism Tattoos

F R E D S @fred_tattoo

When many people talk about tattoo designs they tend to think about tribal marks, embellished pin-up girls, abstract collages, comic book heroes and/or cartoons. Those who pain tattoos in a negative light often proclaim that tattooing isn’t an art form, but we know better. Tattooing is just as much of an art form as painting and sculpting, it just uses the human body as its canvas. Realism was an artistic movement that started in the 1850s as a response to Romanticism. Instead of exaggerating a subject’s features to express emotion, artists chose to show the subject in as close of a photorealistic light as possible. The point was to capture the true essence of the piece, the good and the bad. To allow the viewer to experience what it would be like to see the subject in person without him/her actually having to be in front of it. The popularity of realism has only grown over time with the advent of photography, and it’s just as popular in the art world today as it’s ever been. A lot of tattoo artists come from traditional artistic roots, which is probably why every art style has been represented as a tattoo at one point or another. The gallery below shows off some of the most incredible realism tattoos we’ve ever seen. Many of the tattoos featured in the gallery below look so real you’d think they were meticulously crafted from a professionally taken photograph, and for some that may even be the ...Read More »

Trippy Eyeball Tattoos that are looking back!

Screen shot 2015-06-29 at 3.47.04 PM

EYE CAN SEE YOU! – Eyeball Tattoos are all the rage these days – BAM!! “LOOK AT ME!”, they seem to say, but there’s also an eerie sense that they are looking back at US! A well executed tattoo of any sort commands our attention and Eyeball Tattoos are flipping freaky to look at…when done well. They SNAP us into the moment. In many philosophical circles this is THE defining characteristic of ‘Art’. To cause us to pause, however briefly, from the endless, running commentary in our heads and in the midst of that momentary ‘confusion’, remind us again of the Mystery of life and our place in it. Art is powerful. And it can change us. It effectively slaps us OUT of our wandering thoughts and forces us to take notice of something other than ourselves (& our own inner dialog); something that has this sort of visual power opens us again to the wonders of the universe. Hand made tattoos by artists who want to help us ‘see’… Thanks to all the artists and Instagram submissions we’ve been getting! MORE COMING SOON! — ARTISTS: tag us and use # tattooartistmagazine on IG to submit YOUR best work! 1) tattoo by @gordonptattooist 2) tattoo by @paulsmithtattoo 3) tattoo by @otzistattoostudio 4) tattoo by @eduardolascano 5) tattoo by @mikeylotattoos 6) tattoo by @john_laurent 7) tattoo by @jessem_tattoos 8) tattoo by @nesotattoo 9) tattoo by @xecutionstyle 10) tattoo by @pedrotattoovz 11) tattoo by @tomas_garcia   12) tattoo by @ [we lost this ...Read More »

Nick Baxter: Realism Techniques Part I

ROP2012

By Nick Baxter  This is the start of an occasional ongoing series on this blog where I’ll be discussing the process and techniques of sharp-focus realism oil painting. Here’s the evolution of the painting I began at my parents’ house during a recent visit. The phases of development you see here represent approximate divisions into layers, i.e. major progress stages of the painting (click on the image below to make it larger). In actuality, there were a few more partial layers and back-and-forth adjustments made to various areas of the piece which are not shown here, as they didn’t constitute major turning points… Read More »
