3D tattoos are great for creating optical illusions. A tattoo artist can use 3D techniques to “remove” part of the skin, revealing the muscles and tendons that lie within. This same technique can be used to reveal an alien interior or robot insides. These tattoos aren’t just cool to look at. They also have a deeper meaning. To reveal the muscle within is a symbol of inner strength. To reveal a robot within hints that a person either questions their own humanity or thinks of themselves as being like a machine. Alien innards could symbolize a sense of detachment to the world or a feeling of not being the same as other people.
A popular technique for 3D tattoos is to create the illusion that something is sitting on top of the skin. Tattoo artists create this effect by “rounding” the subject of the design with highlights and shading and then adding shadows, not only to the subject, but to the skin. Shadows convince the brain that space exists between the skin and the subject, creating the illusion that the subject is sitting on top of the skin.
Another clever 3D tattoo technique is one that uses red and blue ink to create a design that appears messy to the naked eye, but becomes 3-dimensional with the use of 3D glasses. These glasses are the same as those used in movie theaters to watch 3D movies. The same effect used in the film to create the 3-dimensional effect is used in the tattoo design. These designs are taking the art of tattoos into a new dimension.
