An artist in Mexico has turned her designs into tattoos - and her signature style creates the optical illusion of blurred vision.

Yatzil Elizalde, 25, owns her own tattoo studio, White Light, in Hermosillo, in the north west of Mexico, but she started out as a visual artist.

She would do illustrations, murals and digital work until she decided that becoming a tattoo artist was her calling - and the results are stunning.

Yatzil told Insider that she moved on when she was 'finally able to tattoo a human body with the style that always defined me.'

Her style is captivating, involving a shadow effect that creates an optical illusion similar to double vision. Many of her signature pieces have the same image twice, sometimes more. They are always slightly off from each other, much like 3D images seen without glasses.

She told Insider: "It's going to sound weird, but there are some times in my life when I see things that way, 'dizzy'."

She says she calls it the 'Blurry Effect'. Her works feature anything from custom drawings of animals and faces to a re-imagined SpongeBob SquarePants. Have a look for yourself:
