These Incredible Tattoos Might Be The Best You'll See All Year

Make no mistake, when it comes to hyperrealistic tattoos New Zealander Steve Butcher sets the gold standard. Such is the quality of his ink-work you'd forgiven for thinking you were looking at a photographic print.

His portraits often feature celebrities from the sprawling and ever changing world of pop culture. In this selection for example you'll see iconic basketball players through to Keith Richards from The Rolling Stones and KISS bassist Gene Simmons with his trademark tongue.

Remarkably Butcher has only been tattooing for 6 years - a relatively short time considering his technical proficiency on display in his work. Originally a painter, a close friend suggested he switch from the canvas to human skin and he's never looked back.

Today he's in such demand he frequently travels around the world to do custom work in different countries and capital cities. To see more of his work and find out where he'll land next (in case you want to make a booking) make sure you follow him on Instagram - half a million people already do so!
