‘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.

‘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.
