Red chilis are used in almost every aspect of Korean cooking. Being based out Korea and featuring many Korean artists, many aspects of Korean life are represented in the tattoos we showcase.
This lamp post.
When was the last time you saw a lamp post tattoo? I’m sure they exist somewhere out there I’ve just never seen one in a photo let alone first hand. Doy’s collection of random object tattoo designs is one of the most interesting you’ll ever come across.
Some artists get typecast by certain styles of design they tend to favor, but when it comes to artists like Doy who work in such immense detail, the notion that they can’t do anything and everything is simply Absurd. From tiny apples to tipis, Doy does it all with an impeccable eye for detail.
This beer bottle.
The way the artist was able to capture the reflections through the amber glass of this beer bottle is nothing short of extraordinary. Hite is one of the flagship beer brands in South Korea. If you’re drinking a domestic in Korea, it’s usually either Hite or Cass.
Okay, so no one (including myself) would consider a horse an “object,” but a few examples of hyperrealism animals snuck into the list based purely on merit. I’ve seen a lot of horse tattoos but a white horse, well, this is a first.
Cruising ’till the hubcaps fall of like Selma and Louise is every girl’s idea of adventure. That is, right up until the ending. The car featured in the film was a 1966 Ford Thunderbird painted in turquoise. This movie would win an Academy Award and go on to launch Brad Pitt’s career.
After about 15 minutes of Googling I still couldn’t figure out what type of pliers these are. I mean, I know every guy has a favorite tool, but this is something else altogether. Notice the pitted texture of the metal.
You won’t find an edgier behind-the-ear design than this little scorpion. Perfectly complimented by any leather jacket, a scorpion is as menacing as any insect in the animal kingdom.
This vintage Porsche.
If you are old enough to remember when a Porsche actually said “Porsche” on the side, then you’ll definitely appreciate this design. Sol Studio puts out some of the most incredible works or art you’ll ever see in ink.
This cup of coffee.
This design is rather rudimentary in comparison to Zlata’s other designs. When is comes to realistic portraits, you won’t find a more talented artist than Zlata Kolomoyskaya. This design isn’t quite what we’re used to seeing from her but you can still see the attention to detail in the bubbles and reflections in this cup of coffee.
