The evolution of art in the world of tattoo has given birth to some truly incredible work. In recent times this has manifested in the form of Tattoo 3D.
3D Tattoos allow the artist to showcase their finest work in a form that makes jaws drop.
I consider myself an art lover with quite eclectic tastes and although I admire well inked tattoos and the artist’s skill I am in awe of the beauty and depth that is created in a masterful tattoo 3d style.
The added dimension makes the work literally come alive blurring the boundaries between art and the real world. I liken it to the achievements of (Sir) Richard Taylor of Weta Workshops and his globally recognized achievements in 3D cinematography. From Lord of the Rings through to Avatar and beyond we are embracing new technology and art most assuredly will not be left behind.
Some purists do not yet identify with the growing trend in the form of tattoo 3d but like all things it only takes time for tattoo artwork of this caliber to become so firmly entrenched in the tattoo society that it will become the norm as opposed to the exception.
Existing tattoo artists are being called upon more and more to attempt the transitional work but, to me, it is of utmost importance that the individual should seek out and validate the artists work before enlisting and artist to create a work of art that will be hard to disguise if incorrectly inked.
It does not matter what theme or style you wish to have inked on your chosen body part. If you can see it in 3D in real life then a talented Tattoo Artist will be able to recreate your choice of artwork at a level that will make most people look and admire.
Tattoo 3D style is certainly gaining in global popularity and this new found love affair is not restricted to the world’s tattoo fraternity.
Perhaps the human body is the new canvas of artistic expression.
Have you ever considered how outrageously awesome a 3D Tattoo would be. I went surfing the net for examples and all I can say is WOW! Tattoos in 3D are beyond belief. Some Tatooists really know their art. That is certainly not to say that conventional tattooists are any different. An artist is an artist and there are some amazing and talented people plying their trade in the industry.
Of course, the realism of a tattoo 3d style is not for everone. Similarly, the love for conventional 2 dimensional art far outstrips the desire to own 3D styles. Is it because of time? Well, I guess we will know in a few hundred years.
Either way, 3D Tattoo designs are here to stay and quickly gaining favor with those of us who want our body to be an admired masterpiece.

Many people go out and get tattoos without first thinking clearly about what they are going to get. They will show up at a tattoo parlor and lie back after telling the artist what they want, and once the ink has been put on they often sit forward for a look and are appalled by what they see. The important lesson to take from the experiences of these people is that a tattoo is permanent and getting one that looks bad will haunt you for some time. You should be absolutely clear about what you want the tattoo to look like, as the risks of permanent disfigurement are high.
Before you even step inside a tattoo parlor you should either draw or print out a picture to represent what you want drawn on you. This leaves no room for misinterpretation, something which can happen all too easily, particularly if you ask for something a little more esoteric or intricate than usual. It also gives the artist himself something to work from – just as oils and canvas artists work from photographs a lot of the time.
Tattoos can cost a lot of money, and the more intricate ones can look either excellent or horrific. Avoiding being in the second group requires having a firm idea and communicating it clearly. The more examples you have at your disposal, the better. And if you want a tattoo that is all text, perhaps a quote from a song or a book, write it down and spell it clearly. Typos may be OK in an e-mail to a friend, but on your skin they are another matter.
There is a definite love affair between Tattoos and Music. This fact is far from surprising as it is hard to imagine our world without the influence of music.
Music stirs the emotions and quickly changes the mood of people the world over. It seems only fitting that the source of so much pleasure and passion be embraced in the art of tattoo.
For those of us who really dig a tattoo 3D style, there are many examples available of music influenced 3D tattoos. In fact, if this is truly your calling then just type in music Tattoo 3D into your browser and go surfing.
From Britney Spears “If you seek Amy” with its lewd inflection to the immortal words of the John Lennon song “Imagine” with “Above us only sky” there are no end of possibilities for the design and makeup of that next tattoo. It may be the lyrics that grip us or the inspirational actions of the singer that determines our choice but either way music influenced tattoos are certainly some of the most popular of our time.
Tattoos even go classical with concertos inked into the skin. It would be a shame to run out of room but then it would give real meaning in the case of Franz Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony”
There are no boundaries. If you can conceive it then you can surely realise it in the form of a music inspired tattoo.
