Intense Color Realism Tattoos by Justin Buduo


These tattoos are so realistic that you’ll want to reach out and touch them.

Justin Buduo is a realism tattoo artist, working out of Studio 31 Tattoos and Fine Art in Worcester, Massachusetts. The true test of a talented color realism tattoo artist is when people do a double take, and are still unsure whether it’s a tattoo or not. Justin Buduo’s work is sure to do this to you, too.

The colors he uses are the same any artist can get, but it’s Buduo’s artistic talent and vision which results in these insane color realism tattoos.
