Take a break from skin art and admire them in the form of stunning paintings made by artist and tattoo enthusiast, Chris Guest. The next time you’re looking to pick up art that doesn’t include pieces on your skin, then you need to check out the works of Chris Guest, a painter from London.

What caught our attention was the solid presence of tattooed individuals in many of Chris’ oil paintings. Now, I’ve done my fair share of messing with oils and I assure you, they can be such little bastards to work with on first try. As if mixing and crying isn’t enough just to get the right hue of flesh, try painting intricately tattooed people. Which is what really drew us to Chris’ tattooed women paintings.

Gloomy Images From Inside The Wreckage Of Car Crashes

Danish photographer Nicolai Howalt has crawled inside the wreckage of numerous car crashes and captured those final moments of impact. There is no gore, no mention of the drivers or details about how the accident or crash happened – yet each car featured has either been in a severe and potentially fatal accident. Collectively they serve as a stark and sombre reminder of the dangers of driving carelessly and without caution on the road.

Japan Bondage-Style Bikini Is Latest Fashion Trend To Sweep Nation

1

If you thought you’d seen some racy bikinis this summer, brace yourself. A string-thin ‘bikini’ is taking the internet by storm having just landed in Japan as it’s hailed the hottest new piece of swimwear in the Far East this summer. The two-piece, by fashion house Buyma, lets wearers show a very generous amount of ‘under-boob’ and just about covers their nipples. Not only does the bikini top not encase the wearer’s breasts properly – like a bikini is supposed to – but it features a lot of unnecessary criss-cross straps across the chest and cleavage – as if to accentuate its lack of support in other, more vital areas.
