Is That A Hole In Your Arm Or Just A Really Trippy Tattoo?

This is ink-redible.

Customer Paddy Buckley now has an arm that appears to have a hole right through it, thanks to the work of Paul O'Rourke of AllStar Tattoo.

The optical illusion tattoo, created in Limerick, Ireland, is such a mind-bender that it has become an Internet hit. The image made the rounds on online outlets, as well as Reddit, and a few Facebook visitors praised O'Rourke for his wizardry.

The tattoo artist is also pretty fond of his creation.

"I love geometrical tattoos, so this one was a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time," O'Rourke told The Huffington Post.

He said the 2 1/2-hour work was made easier because Buckley was able to sit still.

"I've had a lot of interest from this tattoo and people have received it really well," the artist said. "I've gotten a few more requests for this kind of work in the coming weeks, which is great."

We can only hope other clients will be as well-behaved.
