12+ Tattoo Designs That Fooled Our Eyes

These days, it's not good enough to just get a tattoo — you must get one that stands out. And what better way to do that than with a tattoo that's so unique it will make you look twice, right?

I'm talking about illusion and 3D tattoo designs that are pretty much out of this world. I think these examples definitely qualify.

1. This Optical Illusion Masterpiece

Wowza, I can't get over the fact that somebody was able to do this with a tattoo! This Fight Club inspired piece is definitely something I've never seen before. This tattoo artist is a sheer genius with ink.

2. This Robotic Arm

Is this a man or part machine? Wouldn't you like to know, huh? I think if that's what the tattoo artist had in mind they definitely succeeded with this design here. This is really cool indeed.

3. This Creepy Spider

I'm not really into creepy crawlies, I gotta admit but if this floats your boat then just go for it. Perhaps you could get this done just in time for Halloween so you can freak out your friends.

4. This Interesting Design

Wow, isn't this tattoo concept something else? I think it's so awesome and cool. I love how realistic it looks on the skin while at the same time it's a pretty wild design. What do you think?

5. This Twilight Zone

I dunno about you but when I look at this tattoo I feel like I've entered The Twilight Zone. Do you get what I'm saying here? Getting something like this will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

6. This Embroidery Tattoo

How cute is this embroidery tattoo? I absolutely adore it. It literally looks like it's been etched in this person's skin. This is such a cool tattoo technique. I've seen so many of these lately and I love them.

7. This Nature Tattoo

OMG, isn't this meerkat tattoo so amazingly realistic? It's like this little cute creature escaped from nature and jumped on this person's arm, ha, ha! At least that's how I feel when I look at this work of art.

8. This Geometric Gem

I've always been pretty fascinated by geometric tattoos. They can be so intricate and unique. I bet if you got something like this you wouldn't be matching with too many people. That's the beauty of this type of design.

9. This Map Of The World

I would really love to know how someone maps out an elaborate tattoo design such as this one? I wouldn't even know where to start. I guess that's why they do what they do.

10. This Cosmic Piece

There's something soothing about looking through the telescope into the cosmos. Isn't there? This amazing arm piece is giving me all the good feels over here. I think this is such a gorgeous work of art.

11. This Spidey Sense

If you always wanted to be Spider-man now you can with this incredibly realistic tattoo. Oh my, at first I thought this was literally coming out of his skin, ha, ha! That is both amazing and a little crazy.

12. This Mesmerizing Piece

If this awesome tattoo design doesn't make you do a double-take, I dunno what will. I gotta admit I might not be able to look at it too long though, as it could hurt my eyes. Ha, ha!

I can't get over how amazing all these tattoo designs are here.

These artists are so talented to be able to do what they do. It must've taken them years to perfect but when you get something like this it's truly special. Isn't it?

13. This 3D Butterfly

Oh my goodness, at first glance I thought a butterfly landed on this girl's shoulder. Then I realized it was such a well-done tattoo instead. Not only it looks so realistic but the colors are absolutely gorgeous, too.
