10 Awesome Examples of Dollar Art

Central Banking??? This IS AMERICA!!!!

These 10 awesome examples of dollar art– art performed on actual U.S. Federal Reserve notes with ink (or in the last two examples, laser cut etchings by a tattoo artist on a stack of one dollar bills)– appealed to our aesthetic, our love for animation and illustration, and our penchant for not taking the Federal Reserve’s money too seriously.

The artists that did this are real rebels (and I’m pretty sure they’re breaking the law by defacing these, but at least they’re doing it more creatively than Ben Bernanke, and by making them unfit for circulation, at least they’re increasing the value of the dollar so who’s really defacing the currency? …huh, I just blew my own mind):
