Tattoos have gone a long way over the past few decades, just like online casinos. On the online casino side of things, casinos start to become more professional and design are stating to become creative (just check out the chinese-inspired banners here). However, tattoos are now well established as a form of art – such art that often explores and expands its existing boundaries. Within this whirl of never-ending change, some tattooed individuals have taken a step in one interesting direction. Oscar Wilde once said that life imitates art, but here, we could say that art imitates art.
Tattoos inspired by famous artists or their specific masterworks create something of an ouroboros effect – in a way, they form a closed cycle. Tattoos become a new form of art that celebrates older art. This is nothing new, but it feels great to remember once again just how versatile this artistic medium is – and of course, it never hurts to admire a newly discovered piece of body art.
Various photographs show us an interesting assortment of such tattoos, with a lot of variety. From Van Gogh and Salvador Dali (here possibly my favourite), to modern artists such as Banksy… the sky is the limit! Another such selection can be found here.
In a sense, we could say that original tattoos are more interesting than those which often imitate another artist’s work. However, there is something beautiful in the fact that today people can choose not only to carry the imprint of their favourite painting in their hearts, but on their bodies as well.
In the days when museums are not the most popular of destinations, new generations of people who walk the streets with these art-inspired tattoos are somehow sending us a wonderful message: art lives.
