3D tattoos are one of the coolest designs that one can get inked with. They are head turners and can easily come across as something real. Basically, they create awesome optical illusions that you can’t resist having one 3D tattoo on your body. 

They are also mind-blowing as they have the capability to twist or bend the tattoo wearer’s skin without even doing it for real. Like how cool is that? 

Illusions started gaining popularity in the 60s when pop art was quite a rage. Over time, they came to be known as photorealistic tattoos or 3D art. Speaking about ideas for 3D tattoos, there are skulls, flowers, animals and many more to choose from.

So without any further delay, let’s look into the designs that we have collated just for you.

Before jumping into optical illusion tattoos, let us first understand what an optical illusion is. They blow your mind because it is an illusion caused by the visual system and characterised by a visual perception that appears to differ from reality. In easy words it means, they are images that trick your visual system into appearing different from reality. Sounds cool right? 

Well to make it cooler, turn them into tattoos. The artwork involves the technique of making it look like the tattoo has depth, but it doesn’t.
