Tattoo RealismCalifornia artist, Janice Urnstein Weissman, has a series of paintings featuring nude figures covered in tattoos.  At first I thought her paintings were artistic  photography or perhaps, a great exercise of Photoshop manipulartion that is catching on lately. But, in fact, they are beautiful works of oil paintings.  She has created beautiful pieces of art with the subject matter of intricate tattoo designs adorning the skin of the subjects.

They are barely nudes there is so much ink work on their bodies. As with most unique artists, she has a passion behind her art – her intent is to create to raise awareness  about feminism’s impact on culture. Her work is currently on the website of the Brooklyn Museum – check out other pieces with the same subject matter.

WOw. This is oil painting at its best. It also amazed me how this can be achived with oil painting but it’s really amazing.

The artists were free to choose the C-media, including watercolor, oil and airbrush. This creative idea has evolved into an art exhibit, where limited edition prints of fame and recognition art.have only the art of the tattoo, however, is that the guy is ambitious. Many books, flash, painting, comics, video and handmade tattoo machines. All built and that?
