Instead of using Photoshop to post pictures on Facebook, Tumblr and what not, making it look like you have a cool tattoo why not take a different approach – get a tattoo that looks like it’s been photo-shopped onto your body?
French tattoo artist Xoil is probably the leading man in a style that has simply gone on to be known as “Photoshop tattoos , with his works easily distinguished from others by their coloring often going with black and shades of red and always going for some sort of imperfect look.
Xoil, which his real name is Loic, comes from a very small village in the south of France. The style which he is known for is growing in its popularity in Europe, especially in France and Belgium. Xoil refers to this style as Photoshop, as do others, because the initial ideas are created on the software, which means it is a digital composition before it moves on to your skin.
Here are 15 examples of his finest work.
