Advertisement Gives Lego People Intricate Tattoos



An advertising campaign for a new line of fine-tipped pens has proven how fine they really are by giving Lego people tattoos.

It seems like a tattoo would be really hard to engrave even on a normal sized person. That's why I'm so amazed by the intricate tattoos featured in a pen advertisement, which are extremely detailed considering that they're drawn onto Lego people.

A Lego person is a couple of inches tall on a good day, so it's not exactly easy to draw a dragon, skull, or Harley Davidson logo on the arm of one. Seemingly, that's just what Barcelona's Grey advertising agency did to promote a line of Pilot's extra-fine tipped pens. These tattoos aren't simple either, so if they were really drawn on with pens, they're amazing. Even if they weren't, tattooed Lego people are way cooler than non-tattooed Lego people.

The series of six Lego person images can be found here [http://flavorwire.com/106769/strange-but-true-tattooed-legos]. As far as creativity in advertising goes, this is at the top of my personal list. I mean, come on, anybody that gives a Lego person a tramp stamp should be patted on the back and wholeheartedly commended.

That is pretty damn impressing.

Now I just need to think of an excuse to buy one of these pens.

Sad how this brilliant idea is really just an add and not some ultracool gallery exhibit for some pretentious artist. Actually I guess i prefer the ad.

I don't know whether to call that incredibly impressive or an incredible waste of time, maybe a little of both

Both, no question. The lego guys are still awesome, and I do want on of those pens just to fool with. Stupid advertisements making me want stuff.

Impressive, if indeed they did that with the pen. However, after opening them in PS and examining them closely, I'm reasonably confident they're photoshopped. Still awesome, however.

*Sigh* I was afraid of that. Anyways, I came here to tell everyone that if they discovered these were Photoshopped, that I don't want to know.

How is it a waste of time when the artists get paid money for doing it?
