Hyper Realistic Portraits By Karol Rybakowski

Hyper Realistic Portraits By Karol Rybakowski

Karol Rybakowski is a 30 year old tattoo artist that has captivated the tattoo world with his hyper realistic portraits and tattoos. Tattooing out of the legendary Tofi Torfinski’s Ink-Ognito studio in Rybnik, Poland, Karol studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice before deciding to become a tattoo artist.

Karol’s way of tattooing is almost unique, His pieces literally look as if a picture has been slapped on to skin. I still remember everyone being completely blown away by his American Sniper piece a couple years back. It was so realistic there was a point everyone had thought it was just one of those ‘project’s I’d like to do‘ posts. His attention to detail, smoothness and application to skin looks almost effortless in all of his works. Looking back it’s clear to see that Karol is someone who has only went from strength to strength, it’s scary to think with his age and talent, he could improve even more. If you’re at all interested in receiving a piece from Karol, emails should be sent to; tattoo.inkognito@gmail.com

Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at these pieces as much as I do. Until next time!
