Amanda Wachob has done something few artists have dared to do - ventured from cloth to skin with her impressive paint-splattered tattoo art. The New York-born artist has done some spectacularly innovative tattoos that display colorful brushstrokes and abstract paint-splatters.

While Wachob also does more traditional tattoos, it is her eccentric paint-like tats that put her at the forefront of tattoo trends.

Implications - Tattoos have become a mainstream artistic medium, and so the body mod industry has started to push the boundaries to further promote its status as a legitimate art form. Artists are developing new techniques never seen before in the past. With creative minds on both the tattooist's and customer's part, the industry will explode with ground-breaking ink work that will make people look at tattoos in a whole different light.
