Tattoos are pretty mainstream now, but it’s still pretty distinctive to be really inked up as opposed to just a picture of a dolphin on your wrist or something. So it’s pretty jarring to see the pictures of famous people cooked up by artist Cheyenne Randall, who tatted up an array of celebrities for a new project.
The Photoshopped tattoos on celebrities started out in a much more low-tech form—Randall drawing tattoos on celebrity pictures in magazines. But now, thanks to the magic of Photoshop, the work looks very realistic, and you might actually believe for a minute that Marilyn Monroe was a diehard tattoo addict.
You can check out some of the best of Cheyenne Randall’s tattooed celebrities in the gallery up at the top of the page. And for more of Randall’s work, which is focused almost entirely on this idea, head to his Instagram account here.
