Some of the coolest, quirkiest, and most fascinating tattoo designs are of everyday objects done in the photorealism genre. Not too long ago, photorealism tattoo designs were virtually unheard of. These days we’re seeing some unbelievable examples, which are almost indistinguishable from the real thing. These designs are executed with slim single needles—which allow for an incredible amount of detail. If you’re not exactly sure what I’m referring to, below are 40 examples of hyperrealism tattoo art that you’ll no doubt be impressed with.
This guitar pick.
If you’re a guitar player, this tattoo probably just made all of your other tattoos jealous.

When it comes to gun tattoos, I consider them art and ignore the politics. And as far as art is concerned, it doesn’t get much more impressive than this meticulously laid out little Glock. As if photorealism tattoos weren’t hard enough to pull off on their own, when you get into miniatures things get taken to a completely different level.
Over the years I’ve posted some pretty spectacular hyperrealism gemstone designs. However, few, if any, have been able to replicate the realistic depiction of light entering the stone as well the example above. Whether it’s a diamond, ruby, topaz. or opal, this round cut stone is beyond perfection.
There’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold cocktail on a hot summer day served in a fancy wine glass. Capturing the natural reflections of glass and ice is exceedingly difficult from an illustrative standpoint, and being able to pull it off on this level is something to celebrate.
