This "hole in the head" is a clever optical illusion tattoo that can make you stare at the screen for hours

Don't stare so hard, you might get sucked into your screen!

Just when you think you have seen all the crazy things on Instagram, something else comes up and makes you wonder if you know the limit at all. A tattoo artist called Matt Pehrson posts some stunning images of optical illusion tattoos and if you look at them for long they can get you seemingly high!

Tattoo artist Matt Pehrson of The Zion Tattoo Company in St. George, Utah, did a "hole in the head" illusion tattoo on his friend Ryan's dome recently which looks like the black hole, spider's web, Bermuda's trench, you name it!

Apparently, that is the motto of optical illusion tattoos; to create surrealism. In other words, to hide a whole world under your skin.


"Did a crazy thing on my friend Ryan today..." Matt captioned the photo. "We have a lot left to finish on his dome. What do you all think of a piece like this? Tag some friends that will lets us know what they think too..."

Ans his followers and admirers can't seem to keep it together.

"Whoa! That is crazy incredible!" wrote a commenter.

"This is seriously the best thing I've seen today lol. Awesome! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘" said another.

"I bet you Iโ€™d find half my socks down that hole," said another.

"Thatโ€™s tripping me out!" quipped a fourth.

Going by his Instagram page, it could be noted that Matt normally does the full-body tattoos and recently he has been into geometric designs for the arms and legs.




Apart from that, he is also an expert in making elaborate and intricate floral designs that are gorgeous and boho.


He also competes in championships and wins gold medallions, not surprising though. Matt posted a photo of himself to celebrate his win in a pan-American championship and wrote alongside it, "Last weekend I was able to win gold in the absolute division at IBJJF Pan American Championships. I also won Bronze in my weight division. Good weekend for me."


While there is a wide range of designs that Matt has been pulling off perfectly, they all seem to have one pattern, they all entail a deeper than what meets the eye, something that makes you think about the art he has created and not just forget it once it is out of your sight.
