Check Out What These Classical Painting Figures Look Like With Tattoos


If you felt that classical art needed a splash of hardcore ink to top off the paint, Nicolas Amiard’s The Art of Tattoo has you covered. Actually, it has the bodies of art icons covered.

Using his digital skills, Amiard has created a collection of modified paintings featuring additions of body modification.



“I live in Paris where I’m art director at an advertising agency,” Amiard told the Huffington Post. “As AD, I use Photoshop all day long. That’s how I technically realized these images.”

Still in their highly ornate frames, hung as seen in the Louvre, it’s both fun and intriguing to see the blend of body art and fine art.
