Optical Illusion Body Art: Mind-blowing Tattoos that Transform Shape as Limbs Unfold

Did you know that tattoos have been part of human history for many thousands of years – used in ancient cultures as a ‘mark’ of difference (like slaves or criminals) or protection (like pregnant women or high caste priests). Tattoo art ranged from simple arrangement of dots and lines, to ornate whole-body designs of mythical creatures.

In modern times, the tattoo has developed into a fine artform. Take a look at the unique and superbly intricate ‘unfolding tattoo’ developed by Vek Van Hillik – where designs transform as limbs unfold. Here are some magnificent examples.
