Gone are the days of simple lettering, chinese characters and the usual cartoon character used as tattoo designs.

In recent years, having a tattoo means going for the most intricate and badass design inked on your body. And with a growing demand for unique and bold tattoo designs, tattoo artists have now also learned to go for 3D or hyperrealistic designs.

Each tattoo that you will see on this list will make your eyes pop. With the help of correct shading and some much-acknowledged artistry, the people bearing these hyperrealistic tattoos are sure to be proud to be flaunting their inked skin. We would too, if we had the guts to sit for hours while someone poked needles on our skin.

If you’re thinking of getting inked, maybe this showcase of awesome tatt designs will give you some much needed inspiration!

You might want to hide your stick man drawings.

Below are photos of some of the most awesome 3D drawings you’ll ever see. They are so realistic that each drawing seem to jump off the page. Each sketch is a combination of shading techniques usually utilized in airbrushing, a flawless artist’s perspective and a few techniques such as using multiple sheets of paper that help to create more complex images.

Pencils.com state that anyone can try their hand in 3D drawing as long as these 3 main tips are followed: Lighting, Perspective and Thinking Outside of the Page.

Lighting means shading in the area farthest from the light source, thus you have to know where the light falls on the objects you are sketching. In Perspective, just remember this: objects that are closer appear larger, and objects that are farther away appear smaller. Thinking Outside of the Page simply means letting your imagination run wild and never hold back.

Scroll down and be inspired to make your own 3D drawings!

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.

Awesome 3D tattoos coming right up!

From being a teenage tagger, see the awesome works of art of quasi-anonymous English graffiti artist, Banksy.

Starting out as a butcher (for real!), Banksy became greatly involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 80’s, where he was born. Most of his artworks are often satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture and ethics. His art style and messages have, ironically, been wholeheartedly embraced by the very type of people he mocks.

According to the piece written about him in Wikipedia, he does not sell photos of his street graffiti. But art auctioneers have been known to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal to the winning bidder.

On his book, “Wall and Piece,” Banksy explains that when he first started doing graffiti, he was always too slow so he ends up being caught or never finishes his work. To resolve this, he’s devised a series of intricate stencils to minimise time and overlapping of the colour.

Children’s colouring books are supposed to be filled with glitter and unicorns, smiling animals and flowers, cuddly animals and many more happy things.

But a new site called Coloring Book Corruptions has come up with a twisted way of reimagining the way we look at children’s colouring books, turning innocent pictures into dark and hilarious scenes.

Illustrations are being “corrupted” by the amusing thoughts of adults who turned each illustration into something creative, playful and with a little bit of dark twist to them. The site features such illustrations like a happy ant skipping in the grass into one running in agony after being set on fire. A smiling caterpillar reading a book becomes a Satanist summoning the devil. Two jellyfish are drawn as putting a swimmer to death. Morbid or not, the images re sure to provide some lighthearted fun for bored yet creative adults.

There’s a wonderful sense of corrupted glee to be gained in turning a seemingly innocent children’s coloring book into something both awful and hilarious.

New York City artist Tasha Lewis has started a new global street art revolution. Her goal is to spread 4,000 magnetic blue butterflies all over the world to be installed in different cities and hopefully spanning all seven continents.

The swarm of butterflies, 400 at a time, will be sent out by Lewis to 10 groups that will travel further to 100 different homes. She hopes that even if she is not able to travel far and wide as an individual artist residing in the Big Apple, her butterflies will spread far and wide.

Each of Lewis’ butterfly packets is packed with 400 butterflies, a notebook, a how-to guide and a medical kit for butterfly repair. Once a person receives her package, he or she is tasked to travel with the butterflies for four weeks and install them around their homes or surrounding area and photograph them. They are also required to share their installation through the various social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Once the four weeks are up, they would need to pack up their installation and ship the supplies to the next location. Each process is repeated 10 times wherein Lewis hopes to wrap up the project with a gallery exhibition showcasing all of the images of the installations.

It is not too late to participate.Visit the Swarm the World site to know the requirements to join the project.

Creative French artist Etienne Lavie turned the streets of several major European cities such as Milan and Paris into one huge museum.

With her art series creatively called “OMG who stole my ads?,” Lavie replaced the usual advertisements with classical paintings. She used the cities of Milan and Paris, both cities known for their architecture and history. She photographed some choice streets and then digitally adding classic artwork, so unfortunately the streets of these beautiful cities have not been actually filled with classical art.
