What is the Illusion Tattoo Collaboration? 

Norbert, Dublin Ink’s owner, an artist with many years of experience that feels comfortable in nearly every tattooing style.

Isnard, specialising in neotraditional, realism and his own Alfons Mucha like a style. They both work in different ways, they both have different specialities, habits and styles. But they decided to create something different, something that will blow your mind.
Boys have already taken part in many different kinds of artists collaborations but this one was supposed to be special. They decided to use some of the optical illusion reference and artwork by artists like Salvador Dali.

The idea was to create two different tattoos on two separate arms that when put together create a third image. Boys decided to tattoo two girls, one on each of clients forearms that create a skull when joined.

To spice it up a bit they decided to be changing sides every 30min so one had to continue the work of the other.

But this in not all that makes this project special. Ian, the person getting an optical illusion tattoo was a person picked in a draw and he did not fully know what he was getting tattooed until the tattoo was done. Plus, he was getting both arms tattooed in the same time!
