Hypnotic Slow Motion Footage of a Tattoo in the Making

You could take this video one of two ways. You could either use it as inspiration for a macro photography tattoo series that, if we don’t say so ourselves, would be really freaking cool if done right; or you could simply file it away as another mesmerizing slow motion video that’s good for distracting you for exactly two minutes and 50 seconds (plus however long it takes you to share it with any tattoo lovers on your Facebook friends list).

We’ll let you make the decision, but either way we hope you enjoy watching tattoo artist Gaëtan Le Gargasson slooooowwwwwlllyyy ply his needly trade on a willing human canvas… we definitely did.

Hypnotic Time-Lapse of Traffic in Ho Chi Minh City

Photographer Rob Whitworth created this time-lapse of the crazy traffic found in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon), Vietnam.

Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the city’s energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.

10,000 individual photos (shot in RAW) went into making this video.

Mesmerizing Stop-Motion Light-Painting Video Set to Tron

This has got to be one of the awesomest uses of a record player ever: photographer Kim Pimmel photographed light sources attached to a spinning record player in the dark, and strung the still frames together into a beautifully hypnotic stop-motion video set to Tron.

The stills were shot using a Nikon D90 with up to 20 second exposures for each shot. Pimmel writes,

To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.

The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.

Our only complaint is that the video is much too short.
