Hand Engraving for your Ride’s Skin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are endless debates to whether automobiles can be considered as a form of artistic expression besides being a reflection of their owner’s character.

We just stumbled on this ‘hand engraved’  Honda Civic and it gets you thinking about how far the industry is willing to go on creating and developing new innovations, ideas or trends. This is what you get when tattoo artistry goes hand in hand with auto cosmetics.

What you see here is a state of the art project that was being planned and developed for three years. The work done on this car is a result of 5000+ hours of Dremel patience and talent.

We live in times where, fast paced, cost effective and minimalistic solutions, with little concern for craftsmanship, quality, detail and art, are favored. This creation demonstrates otherwise and it would be nice to see more of those art pieces coming to life.

Domo did get a piece of the pie:

Koi fish and dragons are everywhere; Japanese tattoo art is very obvious in this work.

After seeing the work done on this Civic one truly starts thinking about how carbon fiber material, sticker bombing and exotic paint jobs seem silly and simplistic; compared to what was done here.
