35 Surprisingly Captivating Framed Tattoos

2462

If you’re a tattoo enthusiast, you treat your skin as a canvass of a moving art. Your own masterpiece which you carry wherever you go. Normally, in order for the art to be encapsulated into a defined space, artists bound their work in artistic frames and polygon lines and curves. If one tattoo artist applies that boundary to a tattoo, then we get to experience art on a familiar take yet on a radical platform.

Framed tattoos are all tattoos bounded with frames, archaic, artistic or just plain lines. Because of the framing, the tattoo designs appeared to be contained on a mirror, highlighted in such a way that it looks like it separates itself from the skin. Most of the best framed tattoos out there are portraits of people, animals, and a piece of Earth. Sometimes, the owner only has the frame with no art inside, creating an appealing art on its own.
