A Cape Town tattoo artist had a crazy but brilliant idea to make sure one of his clients didn’t have to worry about spending money on new shoes.
Dean Gunthe, originally from South Africa but currently residing in the UK, is famous for creating illusions using tattoos.
Her recent artwork has received many rave reviews from IG and TikTok followers.

Dean designed and tattooed Nike shoes for one of his clients who complained that he was tired of paying for shoes.
“He’s tired of paying for shoes, so he decided to get his favorite pair of Nikes tattooed and he can see the fun side of that!
“I wanted to create the illusion that the person is wearing shoes, even if they are barefoot,” he told Mirror.
The artist says the tattoo will “definitely make you look twice.”
He drew the tattoo freehand.
“Drawing the tattoo on my free hand was the hardest part. I had to make sure everything followed the contours of the body. A stencil wouldn’t work in this case, so it’s all freehand. Once it was fact, the tattoo was simple,” he told the Mirror.
He added that his client’s wife is very happy with the tattoo.
“Definitely a great conversation starter. His wife loves him too.”
