Juxtapoz has had a longer history with tattoo art, perhaps even considering tattoo art one of the early inspirations for the magazine as a whole. But sometimes, we just have to say, "Whoa." A man got a 3D tattoo, "six Pokéball tattoos down his arm and the area beneath each stuffed with a subdermal implant to make them all appear 3D?" More after the jump . . .

We are familiar with artists that use tattoo art and apply it on found images, or in this case, fashion spreads. Dr Lakra uses a similar philosophy.

We like Paul Ulrich. He made one of the best pairs of Nike SB Dunks that there ever were made. That is not where the liking stops, as we like his fine art as well, and we hadn't heard from him in awhile but we see he is showing at Fecal Face Dot Gallery tonight, January 7, in San Francisco.

This post is two-fold. One, we receive many letters from prisoners who are avid readers of Juxtapoz. And two, we like to showcase someone who documents prison art in a classic portrayal like Robert Gumpert has in this series, American Prison Tattoos. Gumpert explores the meanings behind prisoners’ tattoos in Californian penitentiaries with clean black and white photography. Many photos after the jump . . .
