F*cken brilliant tattoos that come to life when bending limbs
It’s been a while since I picked up a Mad Magazine, but do they still have those awesome folding images inside the back cover? Oh, the times we had folding the f**k out of magazines in the newsagent – usually before copping a bollocking from the proprietor. Anyway, the point is that people f**ken love optical illusions. They make what might seem like a simple image at least twice as cool. At least! Anyway, check out these clever f**ken optical illusion tattoos.

Gone are the days when tattoos were just for sailors and criminals. These days, it’s not unusual to see schoolkids with the bloody things. The big ones, that is. We’re pretty sure no one sensible is sending their eight-year-old to school with a full f**ken sleeve.
Anyway, with their increase in popularity, they’re obviously becoming more common. As some people also seem to think a tattoo has to have special meaning, some of the designs are getting a bit more unique.
Enter Veks Van Hillik. This clever prick designs two in one tattoos that come to life with the body’s movements. Yeah, nah, he uses the folds of people’s bodies to create the human equivalent of a Mad Magazine cover.
We’ve collected a few of the b*stards here for you. Have a look at them and f**ken marvel at their genius. Makes you wonder if f**ken Ray Bradbury, the old legend, had seen something like this before writing the Illustrated Man. And what a f**ken book that one is.
Final thought: Personally, I’m a fan. Of course, if I had one of these, I’d get f**k-all done. I’d just sit there flexing the bloody thing all day. If you’ve got one of your own, post it in the Facebook comments. We’d love to see it.
