70 Amazing 3D Tattoos That Will Boggle Your Mind

I love tattoos and optical illusions, but what happens when you blend the two together? Super awesome 3D tattoos that will make your jaw hit the floor, that’s what. Sometimes because you will be in awe and other times because you’ll hear this voice in your head saying: “Why for the love of god, WHY??!!!” Either way, there is no denying that these 3D tattoos are a wonderful display of creativity and craftsmanship.

I hope you enjoy them and remember that you can add your own tattoos to this list. Doing so is as easy as herding chickens. All you need to do is leave a comment below and click the upload picture button in the comment box. The best ones will be added to the list with Honorable mentions of the uploader, who, in turn, will also be nominated for king of Scotland!


  1. Wow, some fantastic work…
    I’ve seen a similar one with a tartan below the skin, probably a Scotsman:

  2. i am in astor , fl, im a viet nam vet with bumps from ops to take out bullets, shrap metal…on my lower tummy, ive been told by tat artists they can take care of it, now i saw your work and am interested, not by anything gross but something nice, can u take care of this, dont no where u are, you didnt give a phone # so pls get bk to me, c

  3. can somebody please tell me the name of the artist that made the tattoo in the first pic…????? The 3D leg tattoo…..

  4. Awesome collection! Did want to comment though on the photo with the man with the buttons down his chest and stomach like a shirt, I believe thats painted on, it’s not a tattoo. I don’t remember the artist but they did a series of painted illusions on the human body.

    • That’s a shame, I was really impressed by it. But I think they could do something like that as an actual tattoo and make it look as realistic. Still a great design for anyone daring enough to get it.

      • Why would you be so condescending towards the language that one speaks? In all honesty, intolerant and hateful comments such as yours just reflect poorly upon you, causing you to appear close minded, unintelligent, and ignorant.
        There is no reason to attack someone because their opinion differs from your own. That type of intolerant behavior accomplishes nothing productive whatsoever and only spreads hatred and intolerance of that which is different. I must also point out that for someone acting so righteous about using the English language, you should know that your use of the word “artwork” is grammatically incorrect.
        Self reflection is a bitch sometimes, huh?

        Next time think before you act.
        And use spell check or sit in on a 5th grade English lesson.

        Perhaps you’ll save yourself from coming off as blatantly ignorant as you did here.
        Probably not, but you could use all the help you can get.

  5. Does anyone know of a tattoo artist that can do a cobra busting out of your chest while on the back slipping into your body?

  6. Amazing tattoos..do you have a list of some of the artists?
    Iive in Dallas, Tx and interested in getting a tattoo of this quality. Thanks

  7. Where can I get a tat done? I need a n address and ill be there. I would like to do my whole upper left quadrant.

  9. those colorful, realistic ones look amazing-for a month or so. A year later they will look completely different. it would be nice to see what they look like now, as most of these were photographed right after they were done.

  10. The full side leg one is probably the most amazing 3d one I’ve ever seen. Others though, have no 3d qualities at, so I’m not sure why they are in the list. That hand one of the creepy doll baby is amazing too.

  11. absolutely fantastic. That tattoo has to be the most authentic looking three-D ink I have ever seen. I am looking to get a Tree-D Great Shark on my arm, and I would like to see if I have any options. Great work folks!!!!
