Veks Van Hillick, a tattoo artist in Toulouse, France, creates dynamic images that change as the body moves. His knee and tattoo images are astonishingly haunting works of surreal art because they present different scenes as the joints fold and unfold. This knee tattoo, for example, transforms a cute fish into a monstrosity from the abyss ready to devour any passerby that thinks it is harmless.
He works primarily in black ink alone, which adds to the terror of his creatures. They are reminiscent of the works of manga artist Junji Ito with merged and supernaturally altered bodies. You can find more of Van Hillik’s work on his Instagram page.
