We generally associate a familiar look with tattoos, irrespective of their design. Well, it’s time to get that notion shattered with these beautiful tattoos that take an entirely fresh look (and subject). Most tattoo artists employ a black outline. By getting rid of that outline and using lighter colors, these tattoos take on a nearly watercolor-like look. These tattoos are the work of Korean tattoo parlor Aro Tattoo, based in Seoul, and staffed mainly by two artists – Dali and Silo.
Dams use spillways to prevent overflow and to minimize the risk of damage to the dam. The one you see here is the spillway for Napa’s Monticello Dam, often called Glory Hole locally.

It may not be that easy to get a sense of scale from the image alone, but this one is massive. The spillway drains 48000 cubic feet of water per second into the Putah Creek.

As cycling picks more steam, it is only natural that we see more options be available for purchase. Being custom-built isn’t solely the domain of high-end automobiles. With that in mind, meet the Williamson Wheelmen bike, and be amazed by its price tag of $35,000. The custom-built bike is hand brazed in Detroit with the goal of being a work of art and a mode of transportation like no other. In that objective, it certainly does succeed, creating a rather impressive look.
