Big Tat on his Back

Although, I do not have any tattoos due to ink allergies, I have always been an admirer of this art technique. You have to be a very talented artist to be able to draw realistic images on skin (especially because skin textures are so varied). A good example is the dark-style tattoos of Victor Portugal.
