Depth and dimension are magically revealed by the shadows within the art. The placement of shadows greatly depends on the angle of the light source. The best artists out there, including in the world of tattoos, know how to manipulate this light source to cast shadows into their masterpieces thereby creating life into the subjects they ink into human skin.
