Italian Artist Proves Tattoos Look Good On More Than People’s Skin By Putting Them On His Sculptures

Time and time again, people have proven that putting two seemingly unlikely things together can result in something even cooler than the original elements. Why do you think Reese’s is so darn good!?

More: Fabio Viale, Instagram h/t: boredpanda

Meet Fabio Viale, artist and sculptor, who took a bit of an unorthodox step in merging two unlikely forms of art together—sculpting and tattoos. OK, you may argue that these do belong together because tattoos go on bodies. Sure. But on a body made from a stone slab? Yeah, you better believe that it’s possible, and Viale pulls it off perfectly.

Fabio Viale is a sculptor, and by default a tattooist, from Turin, Italy. Besides the many unique things he has done thus far, Viale is also the man behind a very intriguing mix of marble, classicism, and tattoos.

In other words, he creates classical statues—like ones from ancient Greece and Rome—except he also applies tattoos to them, surprisingly in a very similar fashion as one would tattoo a human.

The reason why the tattoos look so realistic on what is essentially a rock is because very similar techniques are used here as well. You see, it’s not painted over, but rather color injected into the porosity of the material.

“I have used several techniques in collaboration with well-known restorers and chemical centers, but the process I use is simply based on the penetration of the pigment into the first millimeter of the surface,” explained Viale.

Some years ago, Viale met a Russian tattooist who had a bunch of odd symbols on his hands. Being curious, he asked him about it, which inevitably led him to the light bulb moment you see materialize in his art.

“Like all art, creativity is a mystery. I start from an image that I try to make clear in my mind,” elaborates Viale on the whole process. “Then I face it from a technical point of view, I try to understand all the problems, times, costs, etc. Then I drive 300 kilometers to choose the marble.”

Viale continued: “In terms of tattooing marble, my goal is to create a double identity sculpture: tattooing old masterpieces means donating a second life and, in a contemporary way, a new collective image. Today, tattoos could be considered a suit that everybody may wear, old statues too! Changing an ancient statue’s life builds a temporal bridge towards universal beauty.“

“I am interested in symbolic tattoos, I am not attracted to decorative forms. I see in the criminal tattoos a sort of aesthetic ignorance that draws all the viewer’s attention to its contents.”

Viale explained that images that come to us from the past do not belong to simple sculptures—rather they are icons, symbols that managed to resist the flow of time. It’s not aesthetics or content, but rather its survival throughout history.

“I’ve always been attracted to mysteries, such as the Mona Lisa (Leonardo) or the Pietà (Michelangelo), and their study has led me, during their reproduction, to understand the artist’s personality more analytically which these works generated,” said Viale.

If you’re thinking that sculpting ain’t easy, well, you’re right, as it requires quite a lot of precision, patience, and dedication to make even the simplest of statues. And tattoos don’t make it any easier as Viale pointed out just that—the most challenging part of creating a statue like he does is to recreate the image on the statue as if it was on real human skin.

Viale is currently hard at work on some fist and torso designs and is also collaborating with adult film actor Rocco Siffredi, of whom he created a marble sculpture under the guise of a faun.

Artist Recreated A Miniature Version Of The Town Of Castle Rock From Stephen King’s Novel

According to an artist Kassiopeya:”With my latest model, “Everything’s for Sale,” I return, once again, to the literal world of Stephen King, more precisely, to his famous novel, “Needful Things.”

This work again takes the viewer to a sleepy American small town—a well-known setting, where King loves to portray the small and larger human abysses. What always impressed and fascinated me about this particular story is its timelessness and general validity. The portrayal of the ultimate destruction of this community of citizens, who are step-by-step seduced by their greed and venality, by manipulation and suggestion, bears the characteristics of a timeless classical drama. It could be located in any conceivable era and society, as it focuses primarily on the dynamics within a community.

So while planning the city, it was most important for me to bring the viewer’s perspective in line with the novel’s narrative perspective. That is why the stories of the city and its inhabitants are foregrounded in my model—metaphorically and practically. Their houses are arranged on the outer edge of a semicircular base plate, while the dubious Needful Things store is placed much farther back in the city setting. In this way, it literally operates from the background, out of the shadows—and yet at the same time is the center of the scenery.”

More: Kassiopeya, Instagram, Facebook h/t: boredpanda

“Since the main street separates foreground and background, the facades of the foreground’s buildings do not face the viewer but point in the opposite direction, towards the model’s center. Consequently, the viewer also does not look at the buildings’ fronts but their gardens and backyards. Those are central locations of the story, where “the real deals are made” and where all the hidden conflicts between the citizens more and more intensify as the story unfolds.”

“In terms of construction and planning, this project was quite a challenge—not least because of the limited space on which an entire city had to be built. For this reason, only the houses in the foreground and the shop “Needful Things” were physically built. To still create the illusion of wide-ranging background scenery, most of the background’s buildings (and environment) were painted directly onto the rear board. They were all painted in such a perspective that they would blend in with the real buildings.”

Japanese Artist Creates the Most Amazing Wood Sculptures You’ll Ever See

A Japanese woodworker has developed a “three-dimensional wood inlay” technique that allows him to create exceptional artworks that require no coloring whatsoever.

From intricate carpets carved right into wood flooring, to whimsical furniture that looks warped and cracked, we’ve feature some awesome wood art over the years, but I think it’s safe to say that the creations of Japanese woodworker Toru Fukuda are on a whole other level than anything we’ve ever showed you before. The young craftsman garnered attention recently for his latest work, a simple wooden board with droplets of water on it. Only that water is actually wood that only looks like water. And that’s just one of the incredible creations Fukuda has produced, some of which look too good to be true.

Unevenly Stitched Jeans Will Make You Do a Double Take

Called “Slash Jeans”, the newest clothing items in Leje’s 2021 collection actually make your legs look like they’ve been slashed by a samurai or a ninja.

At least that’s what they look like in the photos posted on the company’s Instagram, it remains to be seen if the effect is the same in real life. So how did Leje’s designers create this illusion? Well, it looks like they actually sliced the jeans and then stitched the pieces together unevenly, which is both simple and clever.
