    This Artist's Portrait Tattoos Are So Incredible You Won't Believe They're Real

    Is it real, or is it Karol Rybakowski's amazingly cool portrait tattoos?

    Say hello to Polish tattoo genius Karol Rybakowski.

    He works out of a shop in Rybnik, Poland, called Ink-Ognito, and he makes the most incredible, life-like portraits you've ever seen.

    Karol studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and you can definitely see the painterly style throughout his work.

    If, for some reason, you wanted a tattoo of Charles Barkley in his prime, THIS would be the guy to go to.

    Or maybe you need Dr. Evil on your leg?
