Mind blowing eyeball tattoos that will… blow your mind! Check these out.
20. Eyeball Entangled
This eyeball within elbow joint is cool and classic in design, peering out from under flesh and surrounded by a web of tangled branches twisting and turning over, under and out from the skin. Dark shading toward the top make the eyeball pop and really nice highlighting on both eye and contorted branches add a realistic feel to the whole piece. A very nice design concept, well placed and ultimately a cool inscribe adding a third eye to the wearer’s world.
19. Eye Framed by Heart and Roses
Roses of scarlet and peach frame all seeing eye, a pretty glimpse into the soul within. This is a very stylized tattoo with marvelous highlighting on the roses and within the iris of the eyeball. Perfectly placed between shoulder blades, these curvy, wispy, fines lines of the rose stems along with beautiful flowers above, form a heart surrounding the eye in love and protection. Gorgeous lining in both bold and faint markings, and the eye itself is bright, a deep amber surrounding the pupil, and she looks on, judging a world she forever walks away from. Lovely work.

Custom Tattoo Design Quote:
Neatly nestled within the top tier of Lotus petals is a dark, mysterious, comic book-esq eye. The eyeball is a strong injection of white with nice shading giving it a an element of secrecy, and the iris is wonderfully highlighted making it sparkle atop leaves of pastel baby pink brushed delicately onto skin. The Lotus itself is a meaningful icon, and the dark black around the flower doesn’t just frame it, it represents the mud that the Lotus blooms out of by day and sinks back into at night. Lotus flowers are symbolic of transformation, purity, beauty and rebirth. Coupled with the eye, which is said to be a window into the soul, this tattoo could represent the beauty within, a pure soul blooming in a world of dirt. Overall, I really like this piece, it isn’t too complex and it doesn’t need to be, and clean lines and precise gradual color change from pink to white on the petals, really define this work.
17. Absent Eyeball
Ok, so I know there’s no actual eyeball in this piece, but it’s so cool it had to be included. The eye, the window to the soul, is absent here, replaced by prison bars, one of them gripped by shadowy hand. Perhaps a hint at a soul trapped within it’s own body, or better; an inner demon imprisoned behind empty eyes. Whatever the case, the concept makes for a great tattoo, and this one is well executed with solid coloring, fine lines and subtle injections of a blue-green that add depth to the brand. An interesting piece and certainly a conversation starter.
16. Shimmering Hand Eyeball Tattoo
This stunning back of the hand tattoo is an instant eye catcher, perfectly placed and beautifully highlighted so that it appears to shimmer in the light. An eyeball on the hand can signify protection from the evil eye, but an eye inscribe also represents omniscience, clairvoyance, all seeing, moral conscience and truth. And the hand is a symbol of control and power, thus the eye and hand together takes on a very strong, powerful meaning. This is a very well executed piece with bold dark shading in all the right places dramatically contrasting against the white of the eye and the wonderful highlights on the eyelashes. Looks great and although it will break up over time, it is a visually captivating tattoo that will protect the wearer for life.
15. Bold Reflective Eyeball
Bold, bright, smooth, smudged, pastel colors really make this eyeball tattoo pop out of flesh. It is a vision of blues, purple and a hint of pink that look as though they were brushed across canvas, subtly framing gorgeous dark and light blue shining iris with speckles of light orange like a glimmer of the soul within. Clean lines define the outline of the eye and lid and the lashes are delicately inked at just the right angles so they seem to protrude from the skin, and streaks of highlights across the eyeball give it a genuine reflective look. A really nice design, pretty and flowing with great color blending, this eye bounces out of the arm representing the inner eye in true style.
14. Eyeball Stitched into Flesh
Bloody, scarred, stitched, red, gruesome eyeball, I love it. This well placed shoulder tattoo is exquisitely horrifying as it appears to have burst through the flesh, a lost, crazed soul from somewhere deep within, and then the skin stitched back together around it, leaving it bloody and bruised. The artist has achieved this with great shading work both on and around the eyeball and then out onto the surrounding skin where it looks dirty and bruised. The eye is also bloodshot and the iris a deep red-orange mix with occasional yellow highlights, all of this making for an awesome, dark, twisted tattoo that is an instant eye draw and will watch the wearers back till ashes and dust come to pass.
13. Eyeballs Galore
Wow, a whole host of different eyeballs peeking out from under skin, this is a well designed piece covering the upper arm in astonishing style. This twisted mess of eyes is extremely cool and the naked flesh interlaced with them just adds to the mangled feel of the tattoo. Each eye is detailed delicately with veins and reflective highlights giving the work a very 3D appearance and the way the eyes are stacked, it looks like gumball machine contents gone terribly wrong, and that is the beauty of the piece. Eyeball madness perfectly tangled with skin in a crazy, everlasting, really quite awesome tattoo.
12. Peeling Back Eyeball
This time, in this arm tattoo, the eyeball peering out from beneath the skin also has a hand creepily clawing its way out of the canvas in sinister style, like there’s another person inside desperate to get out, or desperate, maybe, to take over the wearer entirely. The eyeball itself is bright white and easily visible surrounded by dark shading and coloring and the iris has a nice glassy look like the demon inside seeing light for the first time. Excellent shading on this piece is really what sets it off and although the fingers are a little square and misshapen, overall is it a great design concept and a nice tattoo that will haunt the wearer forevermore.
11. Eye on the Pyramids

Custom Tattoo Design Quote:
Surrounded by intricate Mayan designs in light grey shading, this eye really jumps off the canvas in bold, bright contrast to the rest of the skin art and catches attention with ease with its reflective, bloodshot glare. This ink is very realistic with perfect skin tone color for the eye lids and excellent pink, red and even hints of yellow making up the bloodshot eyeball, and eyelashes that appear raised off the flesh. Reflected within the pupil are ancient pyramids carefully and intricately injected with well placed yellow-white highlighting behind the archaic structures making them stand out and seem to glow, an iconic image of the past, still relevant today, forever burned into the eye within.
10. Insect Eyeball Horror Tattoo
This is an awesome design! It’s creepy, gnarly, disgusting and really, really cool. This decrepit eyeball tattoo looks as though it was stitched onto the skin, grafted carefully to blend smooth, healthy skin with wrinkly, scaly, dying flesh making it a wonderful concept and an extremely well executed piece. The eyeball stares out, bloodshot, unable to blink and the dark coloring coupled with subtle highlights make the iris and pupil very realistic. Bugs have been added crawling into and around the eye making one shudder and itch at the thought, the eye within warding away evil spirits so that the wearer may be in peace. Overall a lovely tattoo that is reminiscent of a horror movie poster, a well designed and perfectly inked work of art that will creep people out for years to come.
9. Bio-mechanical Eyeball
A unique and interesting tattoo, this art work features mechanical parts surrounding aqua eye with very fine, clean lines and awesome shading adding dimension and depth to the piece. Well placed on the upper arm, this ink stands out boldly against pale flesh and reads like a badge of honor protecting the wearer and acting as the all seeing third eye. Muted colors are well saturated into flesh and some of the mechanical wiring matches the light aqua blue of the iris tying the work together nicely. All in all a very well inked tattoo that captures the essence of bio-mechanical style and represents the eye of the soul inside in pretty, bold, stylish fashion.
8. Fantasy Eyeball
The lines between fantasy and realism are blurred in this great eyeball tattoo. The eye looks upward and on while a tear, appearing to spiral from the pupil, rises above in a splashing vortex of hovering water suspended over the eye in fantastic three dimensional perspective. Perhaps symbolic of a tornado of tears, the wearer drowning in emotion, or maybe a bizarre dream turned tattoo. Whichever the case, this piece is beautifully shaded, the white of the eye boldly injected and the veins on the eyeball are subtle and intricate yet stand out clearly. Overall this tattoo is a dazzling dream-scape and a unique take on eyeball within skin design.
7. Clockwork Eyeball
I love this tattoo, clockwork patterns within the iris and also around the eye, framing it in intricate time piece aesthetic. The bright, intrepid blue of the iris stands out boldly in stark contrast to the grey shaded surroundings of the eyelids and timekeeper frame. Clocks represent time, life, death, stability, endlessness, and never-ending love, they are symbolic of how little time we have on this Earth, and the eye is watching time pass by or perhaps protecting life, preserving a moment, a snapshot of time permanently etched in flesh. I particularly like the light blue detailing on the iris and how the highlighting gives it a realistic shimmer on an invisible layer of the eye. Fine work and a beautiful tattoo that captures a glimpse of time in an eternal brand.
6. Rat Eyeball Mortuary
A very interesting, unique tattoo with strong photographic elements. The artist has done a great job with the shading as there are an array of varying degrees of black and grey in all areas of the tattoo. What stands out the most is that instead of eyeball, iris and pupil, there is a very realistic looking photographic image of several dead rats hanging by tails from the rafters of some unknown place. Rats are symbolic of resourcefulness, intelligence, success, creativity, and ambition. Dead animals represent revolution, evolution, recycling and transition. Overall, a very unusual tattoo, with clean lines and a wonderful spray of highlighting on the upper eyelashes that truly makes this inscribe pop. Beautiful.
5. Reptile Eyeball
This snake eye tattoo is absolutely stunning with bright, bold and gorgeous coloring and detailing which is beyond beautiful, its glorious. Perfect line work defines this piece and the edges of the scales fade into skin tone in sublime fashion, coupled with excellent muted shades surrounding the eye gives this work deadly appeal and an authentic reptilian feel, and color saturation of the eye itself is luxurious. The snake carries symbolic meaning of hidden knowledge, cunning, protection, transformation and awareness. Snakes disappear in colder months and re-emerge with the sun enveloping the ancient magicians creed by moving in perfect rhythm with natural forces. Overall this is a stellar tattoo with incredible execution that perfectly honors the snake, a sublime representation of rebirth and balance that will keep the wearer grounded for eternity.
4. Eyeball Caught in Throat
This well placed neck tattoo features an eyeball central to the Adam’s apple and framed on either side by airbrushed looking skulls in blue and yellow hues, representing life and death simultaneously as well as time, power, divinity and concentration. The irritated skin around the eyeball looks as though it was slit with razor sharp tool down the center of the neck revealing a very bloodshot eye beneath. Both coloring and shading set this work apart and the very red eyeball is raw and uncomfortable invoking feelings of discomfort and horror in the beholder. A great tattoo overall that presents a window to the soul in beautifully bold, skin tearing, captivating form.
3. Predator Eyeball
This animal eyeball tattoo is wild, valiant and a very well executed piece. The fine shading around the eye reads extremely well as fur and the rim of the eye as well as the pupil and eyelashes are cleanly inked with precision and grace. But the real eye draw here is the background within the eyeball itself, filled with a delicately injected safari scene complete with majestic elephant, revealing cleverly what the predator within is gazing upon. Beautiful artwork captures the wild instincts within the wearer in this very sophisticated, natural piece that symbolizes the free and somewhat savage spirit staring out from under flesh.
2. The Eye of the Galaxy
I love this slice of the galaxy inked into arm featuring an all seeing eye with pyramid backdrop symbolizing the eye of the world,or universe in this case, represented as a trinity by the triangle, the eye being reminiscent of the existence of a higher being, an architect of the universe watching over all the world. Supreme and serene, outstanding coloring make this tattoo an instant attention grabber and transform the skin into a nebula of sparkling stars and distant planets. The white of the eyeball stands out against this bold rainbow background, and the iris is beautifully streaked with different blues and a yellow-green rim around the pupil, then precisely highlighted to give it a reflective look. A gorgeous piece always watching over the wearer and providing an eternal glimpse into the mysterious, vast expanse of space and time.
Demonic Eyeball Within
Awesome tattoo work and perfect placement make this a truly special, horrific piece. Reddening and bloody skin around this very realistic inner eyeball really make it look as if the flesh is tearing apart revealing stunning, animal like eye beneath. Symbolic of a demon deep within, this tattooed eyeball screams dread and frightfully displays monstrosity buried inside beauty in exquisitely inked, feverish fashion. A well designed brand that sees heart replaced with inner eye looking over and protecting the wearer in scary, shocking style. Wonderful!
