Tattoos have been an artistic expression for as long as recorded history. Whether it be with a paint and brushes or ink and a needle, mankind has found intricate and sometimes painful ways to express themselves.
Some pieces are used to show of rebellion whereas others advertise the intricacies of the wearer’s soul. Some tattoos are so realistic and mind-blowing that they warrant a second (and third or fourth) glance.
Hyperrealistic Tattoos Makers: How Skilled are Tattooists?
The skill of tattoo artists is very peculiar and in case of the ones who designed the below tattoos, the skill is mind blowing. So much perfection must take years of focus and practice to train the brain for impeccable drawings in the first go without making the tiniest mistake. Just because one slight mistake and the skin is ruined permanently!
She’s got legs
This detailed engraving gives new meaning to the term, “wooden leg”.
He’s more machine now than man
A tattoo like this will really test one’s metal
Making emotions the star
He’s taking great pain to show his inner emotions on the outside.
Instead of going traditional (read: overused), this tattoo emphasizes and actual tribe.
This tattoo really ties everything together.
I bet she never falls for the “you’re shoes are untied” joke.
Left arm of God
I bet he gets more than one look at this “Righteous” ink.
Dapper gentleman of London
This gentleman received a call to arms.
Back in time
I bet this clock tattoo took a lot of time.
We all wear masks. sometimes underneath…
He’s always on your side
Photorealism of this quality is divine
It’s always good to have a proper “Wingman”
A good wingman will have your back (and side)
Inking on the go
Not content with a simple lace garder, this lacey inked lingerie doubles as a holster for a weapon of artistic display.
Not a big pussy
This photorealistic depiction lets everyone one know the owner has the courage of the king of the jungle.
A parliament of owls
This is actually just one owl but the owl wraps around the entire arm. Much like an actual owl can rotate its head 360 degrees.
Smoking hot tattoo
As the smoke exhales from her nose, the clown make-up and facial expression tell an intricate story. but nowhere near as intricate as the detail the artist put into this piece.
Art on edge
For those lucky enough to see it, the image portrays a man at the end of his ropes. We don’t see his face but his actions tell us all the story we need.
This is known as an alternate “belly button”
Planet of the cool tattoos
This piece depicts a haunting realistic visual. The ape’s eyes allow you to peer into its soul.
Does whatever a spider can
The dodging of all the attempted swats from people who think this black widow are real is worth it. The insistence that they burn it off your neck probably isn’t though.
I am Catwoman…hear me roar!
This depiction of Michelle Pfeiffer is spot on from Batman Returns. The detail work is immaculate. I just hope the artist didn’t use the needles from Selina Kyle’s sewing kit.
The eye has it
There is no better hangover cure than waking up and thinking you’re in the Twilight Zone. A giant realistic Eyeball tattooed on your forearm will do that for you.
Hooked a big one
For anyone who has caught a fish hook in any place other than a fish’s mouth, this tattoo inspires more pain than pleasure. This is probably a favorite of the Cenobites.
Time just buzzing along
The detail on this (time) piece is extravagant. Hopefully, it can make the bees stop (pun intended) stinging.
Ancient Chinese secret
This photorealistic painting of an old Asian smoking a pipe is breathtaking.
Nothing is beautiful because it lasts. Unlike this tattoo, which will last forever.
Unlike the myth that this tattoo is based on, Everyone will see him coming.
Well that’s a horse of a different color
There is a screening process to get into the mythical land of Oz, after all.
Rock you like a hurricane
Either this is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson or that guy needs to call an exterminator…fast.
Seal wishes he could get kisses like this
A rose by any other name would still not look as good as this rose.
Tattoos are more mainstream today than ever before. It was once thought that Tattoos were a sign of dubious character but with masterpieces like these, one doesn’t care who it’s attached to. Just so long as we get to look at it.
There you have it, some of the most hyper realistic tattoos you have ever seen and they sure are a sight to see when you see one in real!

It is mesmerizing sometimes, seeing what a human can do.
