Living illusions: people with tattoos offering optical views

skull tattoo and escher's hands

Above left - Here’s an excellent skull illusion tattoo involving two clowns holding hands while drinking. The tattoo, by Kate Hoogland, just might contain the most romantic skull illusion ever.

Above – right - a brilliant rendition of M.C. Escher’s Drawing Hands illusion. The piece, done by Cheryl Volling, has some absolutely stunning shading, giving it the life-like appearance of the original Escher drawing.

 

Here’s a great tattoo with a double meaning. Is it a face or a cartoonish man playing saxophone?
