Some Chameleon species are known for their ability to change color and blend in with their surroundings. However, the image above is not a chameleon.

In a startling twist, it’s actually two women wearing cleverly applied body paint.

Indeed, artist Johannes Stötter has made it look like two women are a single chameleon crawling along a branch. It took him four hours to design the piece and another six to apply the paint with the help of an assistant. It’s hard to see their individual bodies at all until they slowly separate and break the illusion.

Canadian photographer Daniela Majic transformed her attic for a gorgeous photo series that she calls “The Secret Garden.”

She notes that these sets are basically little art installations that start with a small wall that she completely covers with flowers. Then she adds paint, grass and additional flowers (typically hundreds of both silk and real flowers) as the themes change and progress. She also makes the costumes and utilizes a small team for hair and makeup.

Daniela has a gallery show coming up in June, and she’s planning to use the opportunity to collect donations for a charity called Because I Am A Girl. She also donates funds to charity from the sale of her prints.

Check out some more amazing pics from the series after the break…

Most parents put their kid’s artwork on the fridge and may save a few pieces in a special folder, but few make this kind of commitment. Keith Anderson of Ontario has been getting a piece of his son Kai’s artwork done as a tattoo each year since the boy started kindergarten. Speaking with photographer Chance Faulkner he notes:

The first one was the daisy- I had it tattooed when he was in kindergarten,” Anderson told Chance Faulkner, a photographer who had an interview with him and took these pictures. “Then we went back and did his name and the house from when he was 4.”

“Recently, my son was there with me and he did some of the tattooing himself. He loves it. No one I know has ever heard of tattooing original kid art before, and it’s a lot of fun… People ask me what will happen if I run out of space; I guess I’ll just get him to draw smaller pictures.”

Inspired by the art of René Magritte, this “Not a pipe” design by AlexMDC puts Mario in a bit of a bind. Then again, this may just be one of his mushroom hallucinations.

sedda tattoo 1

Tattoo artist Pietro Sedda is based in Milan and has his own shop called The Saint Mariner. His Instagram feed shows off an impressive portfolio of completed inks that are artistic, surreal, and hard to look away from. Many designs feature portraits but instead of faces, the heads are covered in mazes or abstract designs or maybe animals. They’re the kind of works I’d expect to see hanging on the walls of a museum.

More examples of Sedda’s inked art after the break.
