At first glance one could think that these were photographs of actual tattooed limbs, torsos and backs. The blending of two seemingly different art forms works perfectly. For a look at more great work by sculptor Fabio Viale, check out the gallery and the links.
Implications - My favorite of these sculpture tattoo hybrids has got to be the fist adorned with traditional Americana artwork. The sculpture of the fist itself is already a delicate work of art, and to see Fabio Viale go the extra mile and put an intricate tattoo onto it is simply phenomenal.
