A Tattoo Artist Who Meticulously Inks ASCII Art Portraits

August 16, 2018


Note: Worthwhile larger version of the image above HERE.

This is a video highlighting the work of tattoo artist Andres Vrontis, who specializes in generating ASCII art portraits (art made entirely out of traditional computer characters), and painstakingly copying the images to people's bodies (with the help of tattoo transfer paper). Pretty neat, right? Would you get one? I'd get one. Ask me where I'd get it. "Where would you get it, GW?" At the tattoo parlor! "Good one." Seriously though these prison tats just don't last. *pulling down pants in back* Can you even tell what this is supposed to be anymore? "It looks like a bushel of dingleberries." Haha -- a straight shooter, I like it. "You don't actually have a tattoo, do you?" No I do not, just a custodian on this floor who doesn't like to do his job.

Keep going for Dali and Hepburn closeups, and the video.



Thanks to my buddy Dave L, who told me if I sent him a recent picture he'd get an ASCII portrait of me on his leg. "I never said that." Come on, behind the balls, I'll just hide back there.

    I'm surprised nobody's built a tattoo printer. I guess it'd be pretty hard to build something that rides on flexible rails and buzzes permanent ink into human skin. Still the robots are going to build one once they gain sentience and they're gonna tattoo ID codes onto everyone.

    You're so firsty for attention.

  • Bling Nye

    I just assumed you were firsting yourself.

  • Jenness

    That's what I always assume as well

    I still have zero interest in ever getting a tattoo, but this is pretty cool.

    Makes me wonder what the new trend will be for tattoos 50 years from now.

    (Animated, color-changing tattoos? It's gotta be animated color-changing tattoos, I'm callin it.)

  • Jenness

    I still think those implants where you can change the tattoo with an app at will are going to be the thing. They never fade, you never are stuck with the same thing

  • Bling Nye

    I really hope he makes dot matrix printer noises with his mouth while he does the work...


  • Douchy McDouche

    I wonder if these people are aware what happens to tattoos like this in a few years.

  • Mr. Roboto

    That was my first thought. This will look like a light gray blob in like a year or two.

    Entropy is bitch.
