Awesome 3D tattoos that will make you want to get inked

Do you have a tattoo and feel quite proud about it? Well these tattoos you’ll about to see will make you want to cover up yours.

Howstuffworks try to explain the simplest manner how tattoo artists create their works of art. Tattoos are done by injecting ink into a person’s skin. This is usually accomplished through an electrically powered tattoo machine that resembles and even sounds like a dental drill. It moves a solid needle up and down to punctuate the skin between 50 and 3,000 times per minute. The needle penetrates the skin by about a millimeter and deposits a drop of insoluble ink into the skin with each puncture. Ouch!

Now, tattoos has always been used as a form of artistic  expression for hundreds of years. Although in the past, tattoos has been used to depict some religious, cultural or political significance, nowadays tattoo designs come in diverse styles and designs covering pop culture to intricate typographies. And quite recently, 3D tattoos have become all the rage, making your flat I<3 MOM tattoo look like child’s play.
