Too realistic to be abstract, yet too ambiguous and inconsistent to make a single coherent impression, surrealism tattoos are a hodgepodge of parts that make up one fantastical creation.
Surrealism is a philosophy manifesting itself as art and described as the juxtaposition of dreams and reality to create the purported super-reality.
It’s liberation from the human mind, a revolution of social views and principles.
Galaxies, repeating patterns, nature or any manner of objects in the place of a human face, the missing face peering out from beetle wings and stone statues, beasts that seem to pull themselves out of the geometric portal of a two dimensional shape, inanimate objects that form animals, the creature that makes up the human and the human that makes up the creature, a distorted view of a scene, normal or otherwise, through a peephole, it is truly the embodiment of anything goes.
Everything is only limited by the boundaries of your imagination. So long as the fragments are placed in a precisely arbitrary display, it’ll come together to form a dreamlike, yet whimsically spectacular illusion — visual poetry at its finest.
Let these surreal tattoos inspire flights of fancy the next time you decide to adorn yourself with ink. You’ll be sure to astonish any onlookers and provoke stimulating mental approaches at the same time.
