Tattoo Artist Creates Tattoos That Change Shape When Knees and Elbows Are Bent

French tattoo artist Veks Van Hillik specializes in clever black-and-white artwork that changes shape when the person bends their arms or legs. Tattoo artists usually steer clear of elbows and knees because of the way their designs are warped when the client bends. However, Veks Van Hillik embraces the challenge, creating mesmerizing tattoos that turn into something completely different when people bend and unbend their joints. Examples of these ingenious designs include an elbow-positioned scarab that opens its wings when the person straightens their arm, and an expanding koi fish. While it might seem like such shape-shifting tattoos would require a lot of planning and pinpoint accuracy, Hillik reportedly does most of his work freehand, which only makes his skill that much more impressive. Apart from his work as a tattoo artist, he is also an established painter whose pop-surrealism style has become very popular with art lovers.
