Niche Biz: Hyper-Realistic Tattoos

At first glance, they’re partially surreal, and wholly terrifying.

But the second mouths on neck, open stitches revealing superficial muscles, and the bionic pistons breaking through the flesh on a person’s arm, are actually not real.

Rather, they are hyper-realistic tattoos created by talented tattoo artists.

Venezuelan artist Yomico Moreno, who works out of Caracas, has inked a variety of tattoos, ranging from sinister to downright surreal.

Among his works are bionic arms, layers of skin ‘peeled back’ to reveal a beating heart, and the somewhat less dystopic images of ladybugs and butterflies.
