144 Surrealism Tattoos - Photos, Designs for Men and Women


This style, unusual and attracting attention, is also called “superrealism”. Extraordinary images seem to embody the fabulous universes, parallel worlds and mysterious dreams. Tattoos in the style of surrealism can be called a kind of protest to the gray weekdays and conventions that society imposes. We can say with confidence that the person who chooses for a surrealistic tattoo is able to see in the outside world, something that is not available to the rest.

It is worth noting that the name of the style I derived from the French word meaning “super reality”. It’s something that raises us above the everyday routine and makes us look at things at a different angle.

Most often the motifs for tattoo sketches in the style of surrealism are:

  • fairy-tale characters (dragons, elves);
  • stylized flowers and birds;
  • abstract ornaments and patterns.

Ethnic ornaments and symbols in a certain style are also customarily attributed to the style of surrealism. Unlike other images, they can be inked in black and white. Here you can consider Celtic runes, Indian dream-catchers, and graceful Slavic kolovrats.

Moreover, nowadays, more often people want to see the paintings of the most talented masters of surrealism such as Salvador Dali, Vladimir Kush, Vasily Kandinsky, on their bodies. Such work, of course, requires the master a certain level of talent.

A distinctive feature of all the images on the body, made in this style, is their brightness and color. In the vast majority of cases, surreal tattoos don’t have any hidden meaning or philosophy and don’t impose any obligations on their owners. However, they help open up, express your inner world, vision of life, stand out from the crowd and feel your unusualness.

Beginners in tattoo art often prefer to work in this style, because it enables them to show all their talent and imagination. Sometimes real works of art appear on the backs or arms of people.

According to statistics, women prefer to decorate the neck, ankles, and the back (if the image is large) with such abstractions. Men often choose forearms or the chest.
