This Artist Recreates Traditional Tattoos as Incredible 3D Illustrations

Meet the UK's Billelis

For decades, tattooers have found inspiration from the work of classic and contemporary artists that work in mainstream media such as painting, sketching, and graphic design. However, as tattooing has become more popular in 21st-century society, the tables have turned and mainstream creators have become influenced by the culture of ink slinging. One of these artists is world-renowned 3D and 2D illustrator, Billelis, who has worked for major clients such as Nike, Penguin Random House, and Coca-Cola. Take a look at his Tattoo Series in the gallery below and share your thoughts on his unusual art in the comments section on Facebook.
