In his ongoing project called Shopped Tattoos, artist Cheyenne Randall reimagines celebrities and other public figures as if they're covered from head-to-toe in ink. We first shared his handiwork last year, and since that time, he's been busy adding more tattoos onto pop culture icons. Movie stars, musicians, and even public figures all sport his digital adornments, and Randall has a knack for making the photo manipulations look incredibly realistic.
The artist has thoughtfully added tattoos that are specific to his subject–Muhammad Ali, a famous boxer, has the competitive phrase “bragging rights” on his hand, and musician Johnny Cash's knuckles spell out “June” (which refers to his beloved wife, June Carter Cash).
Though it's hard to imagine many of Randall's subjects as people who would ever get tattoos (e.g. Prince William and Princess Kate), there are those like Edward Norton and Brad Pitt whose public personas, coupled with Randall's Photoshop skills, make it seem like a very likely possibility. (We could realistically see them with full sleeves!) It's this amusing yet thought-provoking visualization that makes Shopped Tattoos a fantastic series to follow.
