This awesome Steve Jobs tattoo is the most lifelike we’ve ever seen


We’ve seen some incredible tattoos of Steve Jobs before, but this has to take the cake.

Skin artist Nikko Hurtado specializes in hyperrealistic body art, using the skin as almost a living canvas for photo-real representations of popular characters and celebrities.

He’s done some incredible work in the past, from full sleeves of Yoda and Darth Maul from Star Wars to Audrey Hepburn, Walter White and Abraham Lincoln. But it’s his amazing portrait of Steve Jobs that’s got to have any Apple fan drooling.

Even if you’re not a tattoo fan (and I’m not) you have to admire the mastery that went into this. If only this tattoo came in a temporary variety.
