Animal Tattoos Obscured with Colorful Glitches by Lesha Lauz

Russian artist Lesha Lauz, aka Alexey, creates colorful tattoos that are fit for our digital age. He combines vibrantly-hued animals and obscures parts of their portraits with pixels. The permanent body art is reminiscent of when an image doesn't load correctly, and it’s something we’re probably all too familiar with. Here, Lauz's handiwork is a playful and often adorable nod to this frustrating glitch.

Lauz has a fantastic sense of design and is careful to not mix too much pixelation with his subject. This way, the figure is still recognizable. The glitch is a clever accent that produces an unexpected visual effect, which is sure to strike a chord with anyone who has ever used a computer.
