I’ve never been to Brazil, but after seeing the work of this tattoo artist I’m seriously considering taking a trip out there to get myself inked. Brazilian tattoo artist Felipe Rodrigues demonstrates a spectacular mastery of the artform with these vibrant and fluid tattoos he’s designed and posted to his Instagram.
Rodrigues’ subject matter is fairly varied too, ranging from fairytales, flowers and skulls and nature to video games and science fiction.
Check out some more of his amazing creations below.

Can tattoos be used to advance medical science? Chaotic Moon Studios certainly thinks so. The “creative technology studio” recently unveiled what they’re calling “Tech Tats.” These temporary tattoos can be used to transmit data for a wide range of practical applications—most notably medical.
The studio makes the tattoos using a conductive ink which is applied to the surface of the skin (so yeah, it’s not permanent). The tat functions as a medical monitoring device, which means that it could track a user’s vital signs and transfer that info wirelessly to an external device (like a cellphone). So, instead of having a patient wear a cumbersome medical device on their chest or arm, they can simply apply this thin, easily concealable tattoo straight to their skin and go about their daily routine unencumbered.
Theoretically, Tech Tats could also be used for other practical applications like authorizing payments at NFC-enabled terminals.
Check out the project video below for more info.
Casey Lubin decided to turn her body into an art project by getting 11 new tattoos inked into her skin by artist Clae Welch over the course of one week. The result is also a history of the process, as each example was done in the style of specific American tattoo artists from each decade of the last century.
Chances are you’ll feel sore just watching it.
