Someone apparently needed a tattoo like a hole in the head – and got both.
A tattoo artist from Utah posted an image on social media showing an optical illusion which makes it look as if one of his clients has a hole in the back of his head.
The tattoo was the work of Matt Pehrson, an artist who runs the Zion Tattoo Company based in St. George, Utah.
‘Did a crazy thing on my friend Ryan today…’ Pehrson wrote on his Instagram account.

‘We have a lot left to finish on his dome. What do you all think of a piece like this?’
Pehrson drew several thick lines on Ryan’s bald head that turn inwards to the back of his skull.
With clever shading, the artist created an eye-catching illusion making it look like Ryan had a massive hole in his skull.
As of Thursday, the image on Instagram has amassed more than 11,400 likes.
‘Literally looks like he has a hole in the back of his head holy s*** good job,’ one Instagram user commented.
Pehrson posted several of his tattoos on his Instagram account, including the one above

‘This is the most insane optical illusion,’ another fan wrote.
Ryan plans to get even more work done on his head.
He currently has a colorful shark on his neck and some patterns on his forehead.
Pehrson will probably concoct a design that will link everything up to create an awsome design.
