3D Tattoo LegWould you like to have a picture of a 3D demon exploding out of your chest?  Would you like to make it look like an exquisite piece of art was carved out of your right leg?  Would you like to see the shock on people’s faces when they think that a real scorpion is sitting on your shoulder or a real snake is crawling down your back?  In recent years, more Americans have been getting tattoos than ever before, but now a new body art trend is spreading across America like wildfire.  3D tattoos can be far more realistic than conventional tattoos, and many are choosing them for their pure shock value.  But how will all of these young people feel about their weird tattoos a decade or two from now?  And what does all of this bizarre body art say about our society?  Is this a good thing or a bad thing?


Below are photos of 3D tattoos that I found on Facebook and Pinterest.  At first glance, it is hard to believe that some of these are actually tattoos…

3D Tattoo Under Neck

What you just saw are examples of what I thought that I could safely share.

There are a lot of other photos that were so demonic or so risque that I felt that I just couldn’t share them.

These 3D tattoos are part of a much larger trend known as “extreme body modification”.  In this day and age, there seems to be a constant desire to “push the envelope” in the body art community.  And what some people have chosen to do to themselves in the name of “art” is truly, truly bizarre.  The following is a short excerpt from my previous article entitled “People Are Undergoing Extreme Body Modifications In Order To Look More Like The Devil?“…

When does body modification go too far? In recent years, the popularity of tattoos and body piercings has soared, but now there are thousands of people around the globe that are taking body modification to ridiculous extremes. For example, would you be willing to have your tongue split in two so that you could have a forked tongue? What about getting eyeball tattoos or having titanium horns implanted in your head? To most people, doing such things would be unimaginable, but there is a growing subculture of individuals out there that truly seem to enjoy “pushing the envelope” and seeing what is possible. Some of them want to look like cats, some want to look like vampires, others want to look like aliens and some even want to look like the devil. Yes, you read that correctly. You are about to read about one man that is purposely modifying his body so that he will look as much like the devil as possible. In fact, he even plans to add a tail someday.

You can check out the rest of that article right here.

I have a feeling that most of these people that are mutilating themselves will end up deeply regretting it.

After all, the truth is that most forms of extreme body modification are not going to help you get a job or find a spouse.

But what do you think?  Are 3D tattoos and other forms of extreme body modification a good thing?  Please share your thoughts by posting a comment below…

    ” In recent years, more Americans have been getting tattoos than ever before…”

    I’ve noticed that. Even Christians are getting tattoos. I know of Christian women who have tattoo “ideas” on their Pinterest sites. Personally, I find tattoos unattractive, particularly on women.

    • TruthIsAll

      A lot of Christians are corrupted these days and follow whichever preacher promises them no change to their lives as long as they join up with a church. Sounds like a way to gain control over people. Now I’m not a Christian, nor a religious man, but even I have a sense of morals. And I too have noticed that body modification in general is becoming more popular. A lot of peers, even the religious ones, are getting ridiculous body art. In the military they had this obsession with skulls and death. That doesn’t seem very Christian. What is this fascination with demonic imagery? Why are people turning towards this stuff? I really do hope it’s just a silly fad, but with all the talk of prophecy and the end of days I’m not so sure anymore.

      Good and evil is often philosophized about, but what of order versus chaos? It seems like chaos is gaining traction. Maybe there are more powers at work than an atheist cares to see.

        Well I hear that good old MKUltra is alive and well in Hollywood. The sheeple do tend to copy what they see in the media…

      • Wylie Stivers

        With this statement, you have some discernment going in regards to Ty spiritual forces that are at work. You might not believe in an all powerful creator but that doesn’t make Him any less real. Just because you can’t see Him is no reason to not believe. If you believe in evolution, then that is your religion and, unfortunately, religion never got anyone into heaven. A right relationship causing a person to be in right standing (the act or state of being righteous) is the only way. You must first believe that He is, then believe His word. I was in your shoes once and my eyes were opened and I repented and accept the gift that Jesus gave me…His life so that I may live with Him eternally. Even souls that go to hell will live in an eternal body, just in constant torment forever, that is the reality of it. God is just and righteous, He made the way through Jesus to Himself for all. Most will reject that free gift and try to become righteous through works which is impossible since Jesus’ life, works and thoughts are the standard or plumb line upon which ALL will be measured. I failed and so has every other human in history, by accepting His sacrifice on my behalf and being obedient to His laws, I prove that I love Him and have accepted that free gift of eternal life. I hope you receive Christ before it is too late.

  • Luis

    The Bible in Leviticus 19:28 expressly forbids tattoos. Their increasing popularity is just another one of the many signs that we are living in the last days.

    • bert

      amen! wrote the same thing above and now i see i’m not alone!

    • Frank

      This was a law for the Jews to set them apart. Be honest, do you pick and choose which ones you follow and which ones you don’t? What would your reaction be if I learned you ate catfish and then quoted Leviticus 11:9. Are you saved by grace or by keeping the law?

      • Wylie Stivers

        This is an ignorant statement but partially true. Believers are not saved by law but by grace. We are in the dispensation of grace but yet the law is perfect and will never go away. The laws regarding clean and unclean animals for food were put to an end in Acts when the sheet came down from Heaven in Peters dream and he was rebuked by Jesus for calling certain foods unclean which had been made clean. The tattoo issue was never changed and will always stay the same. Believers are not to get tattoos for a reason…it is called obedience. Going against Gods rules is foolish and a believer could cause other believers to stumble by being in direct disobedience. But there is a false doctrine being taught that believers can just do whatever they want with no repercussions in the end. Does a person that just decides to never obey God in His word have real faith that leads to salvation, I’m thinking no, but I don’t know their heart either, God however knows and will judge each one “according to his or her works”.

  • kfilly

    These people are fools. If I was running a business and one of these extreme artwork individuals walked into an interview, the interview would go over so well. Afterall, who wants the devil working in their office or people with spikes sticking out of their skulls? These people don’t get the fact that they would represent their employer when they are at work. As far as the smaller tattoos that can be concealed, that is their prerogative.

    • old fart

      They are part of the welfare group no worries gov check is in the mail

  • Uh-Huh

    In Sodom and Gomorrah, anything went…even now, here in America, evil still reeks.

  • Undecider

    We see the trend here. Young people who are not even thinking how this garbage is going to play out in the decades to come. With a tighter job market, you’d think they’d want to make themselves more presentable versus less.

    • Jim

      Trailer Park Trash stays Trailer Park Trash.
      But isn`t that the plan.
      Make people change everything about their bodies.
      So it`s easier to convince them to get a tracking implant or something like that.

  • PurpleWings

    That first one with the “carving” on the girl’s leg I think is pretty cool. I didn’t like the other ones. I currently have four tattoos, but they are all easily covered up when needed and I thought very carefully about what I wanted permanently on my skin. I say to each his own, but they shouldn’t be surprised if they don’t get the job they want because of a giant eyeball tattooed on the back of their head.

    • English Kev

      I doubt that any job is on their ‘must do’ list.

    • NoChip4Me

      A leg made to look like someone carved a design into the flesh is cool???? You’re idea of “cool” and mine differ widely.

    • TheBingeThinker

      From a purely artistic standpoint, I agree, the leg is pretty cool. Tattoos are just not for me though, and WTF with all the freaky stuff! I think in 10 years when they outgrow them (I hope) they’ll be looking to get those removed.

  • Kim

    Ugly. Why would someone want to disfigure themselves like that?

    • K

      In many cases, it is a cry for attention. There are people in the world,who would rather have negative attention, than no attention. Then there is the evil is powerful group. They think they gain some kind of a edge, from this insanity. I do not feel any mentally well person, would take tattoos to this level.

  • DJohn1

    I think it is expensive to remove disfiguring tatoos from one’s body.
    I suggest if someone would come up with tatoos that look real but can easily be removed when the kids tire of them, that might be a better solution.
    The artwork is fantastic. Never knew they could make these things that look that good.
    Also, I think it is painful to have tatoos made.
    From a job standpoint, appearance is everything. A lot of people associate tatoos with a rougher crowd of people. It is also a gang related thing in many cases. Both of which are liable to eliminate you from getting the job.

    Tatoos are historically ancient. A lot of tradesmen used them at one time to indicate that someone belonged to their trades organization or brotherhood.
    Personally, I wouldn’t want one.

  • bert

    the Bible is quite clear on the satanic nature of “body art” and nothing signifies the end of a viable thriving nation more than imperialism, another trend which i can’t mention for holy hell will break loose, and the increasing % of citizens with tats. DISGUSTING!

  • chris

    It’s not just the USA the UK youth and older have also embraced the stupidity of such body ‘art’. Again we have the ‘celebs’ in the music world and elsewhere to blame for this. Can only imagine that people who are into tats will be more receptive to getting their ‘mark of the beast’ .

  • SafetyViking


    A tatt is a t-shirt you can never take off. On guys they’re a substitute for ‘manhood’. On girls, they just look skanky….



  • GeorgiaImpeach

    I’m stunned by the number of people with tattoos. Especially mothers with tramp stamps, big tattoos on their arms and legs. It’s just defacing their bodies to me. Our bodies are temples. Ick

  • JimmyChonga

    D I S T U R B I N G. I really don’t wish to share society with an
    ever-growing number of individuals that have drown out the reasonable
    and rational voice of conscience at the altar of self-worship. I can’t
    help by think these people are troubled – deeply disturbed.

  • Jason

    Was always taught as a youngster to treat the body as the temple of God. As a Christian we go to confession and then Holy Communion. Is this a good example of a temple of God by mutilating the body?

    • Frank

      Your body as a temple is referring to keeping it pure sexually. If you disagree please read the whole passage again. Otherwise eating cheeseburgers would be a sin. :). Secondly, Jesus is the only mediator between us and God. I believe that is 1 Timothy 2:5.

      • Wylie Stivers

        Sexually, not abusing drugs, not using it to worship idols, etc…the food thing is not valid anymore. That was part of the levitical law that has no bearing or reason anymore. Just like we don’t need to sacrifice a lamb for our sins. The ceremonial law is fulfilled, the moral law is forever and will never go away, however, righteousness cannot be attained by merely following it, we must have a right relationship with God the Father through Jesus.

  • El_Tigre_Loco

    Leviticus 19:28
    You shall not make any gashes in your flesh for the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

    • Cynical Guy 42

      I never really wanted a tattoo, as I felt nothing represented me well enough to stay on my body permanently.
      But these people are not doing it for the dead, but for the shock value. That being said, many people do regret their tattoos, something that ought to be taken into consideration.

  • TruthIsAll

    What a bunch of pro-Israel propaganda. I checked that entire site out and it accuses the Russians and Iranians of being the pawns of the antichrist when the western powers (America especially) have been the ones pushing things like “the mark of the beast”. If that’s what God really is, a war deity that has elevated a certain group of humans to special status over the others, then that’s a God I will never follow. You shouldn’t get a free pass at genocide and all the things you claim were crimes against your own people in the past. The most frightening part about all these wars and tribulations is that they might not even be prophecy unfolding. Rather, the core elite of humanity is purposefully trying to create it. What happens when it fails? That is just as horrifying as the end of days.

    I will stand by humanity and the greatest things we’ve achieved and have the potential to achieve.

    • Karen Taylor

      Truth, I’m sorry you feel like this about God. first of all he is not a war monger, but loves all. there are reasons he gave those instructions, but you have to study and learn WHO the people were..they were nephilim, part human, part fallen angels and they were wicked. God hates evil and cannot tolerate it, as he is pure and holy. that is why he sent his Son to die so that YOU can be changed and forgiven..the ultimate gift you can give is your life to save another… we usually call them heroes.
      why the hate for Israel? When you read the Bible you know they were God’s chosen people, not always true to him, not always doing what was right, but it was through them your redeemer came. many Jews today are not serving God..at least the ones you see in the news…hollywood, music producers, politicians, and some business people..but like you and me they need a savior too. And because of Jesus, those who are not of the Jewish race have an opportunity to be a child of God. it is no longer just a “jewish” thing.
      Prophecy can be interpreted many ways, and that is why it is important to be under a good leader/teacher and to study if for yourself. Jesus’s own words in matthew 24-25 sure sound like our newspaper and events today. fact is, the USA will turn against Israel,as will the entire world..just as Jesus said.
      The truth is .. we live in a realm that is spiritual..good vs evil, god vs satan. Everything that happens is part of that battle. do you think the world is more evil than ever? you think so by your first post. Why do you think that is? if it’s just humanity, how can people who are made the same basically, turn out good or evil? what is the source behind that?? it just makes sense that there are good and evil influences encouraging these behaviors. You hit it spot on in your first comment!

      • No

        Nope, it isn´t God, it is some humans pretend to know that God is for their own gains.

        The ancient testament is no divine instructions, for countless generations it have been the tool of some individuals, kinglets and priests, to deceive and manipulate the believers into doing their bidding.

    • DrGerryG13

      You are a schmuck

    • Jim Davis

      All of Michael’s sites seem to be going full-retard, pro-Israel. If I wanted to read that crap I would go to one of the many many many Zionist-owned media outlets.

    • Art Weaver

      I understand your sentiment. However, you should keep in mind that these are the acts and thoughts of men, using the name of God and Jesus under the cover of organized religion. They are not at all in line with Christ’s actions or Christ-like behaviour. Satan is busy insuring that good folks like you are turning away from God and Christ by deceiving them about what they are about! God will never be perfect in the eyes of a man because the man, being imperfect, cannot see the truth!
      Take comfort in this: Most of the Christian world is not even truly Christian! Most Christians truly want to follow Christ but either are deceived in how to, or simply incapable! We do our best, after all, we are only human…..

  • Jim Davis

    I guess these people figured that since there are no jobs, who needs to worry about getting hired for one!

  • DrGerryG13

    These poor people are effen crazy

    • And they’re permanently screwing up any job opportunities. All for ‘expression’..

  • fghryg

    I would get a 3D tattoo as long as it’s not weird and big like most of these. Some of these creeped me out. The only thing is I don’t really want to have hundreds recognize me when i’m at the nude beach or resort.
    The fact that tattoos make it easy on the police is also a big turnoff.

  • MacFly1

    The body is a temple. Don’t write on the walls.

  • spike

    hate to burst your bubbles but these are not tats. they are actual body paintings done by a japanese artist. write 3d body art in your browser and these pics show up in the image category. tats do not have that clarity of color even if it is fresh. hope this makes everyone feel a little better.

  • jameson

    I do not find these appealing in any way shape or form. To me these tattoos look like horror movie makeup, something that is OK to put on for a movie or an event or even halloween and then remove. The picture of the girls leg is the most awful to me, even though technically the others are more horror like. Again as always these tattoos will wrinkle with age and be something these people will come to regret.

  • Tattoos, piercing, self-harm, anything that permanently alters your body for ‘expression’ is stupid and pointless.

  • chris

    I’m actually impressed by the amount of detail in some of the tattoos pictured above. Not my cup of tea but each to their own.
