How Real-looking Can a Fake Tattoo Get?
This is as “real-looking” as a fake tattoo can get. The full torso and sleeves created for actor Wentworth Miller, who plays Michael Scofield in the hit television show PRISON BREAK, have really raised the bar on fake tattoos. Designed by tattooist Tom Berg and translated into makeup by makeup artist and theatrical tattoo specialist Christian Tinsley, this full upper body design is created by applying a series of decals and then touching up the effect with makeup to make the various panels appear seamless. It’s been reported that the entire tattoo shirt can take between four and five hours to apply if multiple artists are working on the process. Made from extremely thin plastic-like material, the appliques can then last over a week with care.
