Portrait Tattoos, like Eminem by Tattoo Artist David Corden look better than the reference photo!

Tattoo Artist David Corden, from Semper Tattoo in Edinburgh, Scotland, has been tattooing for more than 15 years, and it all started out as a temporary job?! He had been undercut in his school for his art looking so much like an actual picture. We admire the accuracy and ability to recreate something from an image and have it look exactly like it, in most times, better!

Everyone knows who this tattoo is based on and his impact on hip-hop music. This tattoo is of Eminem one of the biggest names in rap history. This doesn’t even look like a tattoo but like a printed image on this client’s arm. That’s due to his power in the detail and the use of color and shading makes him stand out. This beautiful Eminem tattoo portrait is simple yet complex at the same time which takes a lot of skill and care to execute such a piece.

The next tattoo is of the light-hearted fool from the Wizard of Oz. It’s none other than the Scarecrow! He was one of the characters that helped Dorothy find her way to the wizard and hoped to get a brain from him. Although he had a brain the whole time it only took a journey for him to realize that he had it all along. You can really see the innocence on his face as he gains a new experience on his journey.

Tattoo Artist David Corden puts a lot of detail into the Scarecrow and it shows different textures from his hat, to the straw, and to the burlap sack appearance on his face. It also looks like he had a lot of fun bringing this fantasy character to life.

One of the greatest comic book villains is brought into the spotlight in this tattoo of Heath Ledger as The Joker. Heath Ledger played The Joker in the movie,” The Dark Knight” Trilogy Series, which happened to be Ledger’s last movie before he passed away. He is known as one of the best The Jokers due to his fresh new take on a classic villain. He played the role as more of a sociopath rather than a comedian which is why the fans fell in love with him.
