3D Tattoos: Amazing To Look At, But We Wouldn't Have One Ourselves

Planning a tattoo this year? Well, forget the roses, Chinese characters and your sweetheart's name - it's so 2013.

This year, 3D tattoos have taken us by storm by adding a whole new dimension (literally!) to the ink-stained art.

The idea of it being as realistic as possible can at times be cringe-inducing with robotic limbs showing through the skin and different wild animals crawling in and out of it, but nonetheless, tattoo lover or not, they're absolutely breathtaking.

We put together a gallery of our best finds for you to enjoy! Let us know your favourites in the comments below.
