This 3D design of a body armor is so beautiful, intricate and so lifelike. Go and conquer, warrior!
Alpha male; dominating, in charge. The design on the left side of the chest bares a close resemblance to a tiger’s head or is it the Ultron? Any words about the calligraphy on your stomach?
#5: JOKER’S GRAVE

Imagine stretching your hands, so your sea mates can use the compass you have etched on your skin. Cool! Right? The blue feathers hint of a Native Indian heritage. We love it.
Dark angels with feathered wings. Who doesn’t want an angel to save them? This must be quite popular with the ladies. We love the symmetrical position and how the design sits right in his chest.
