Get inspired by this trend called Blackout Tattoo !
The tattoos and their different styles continue to spread around the world: pointillism , watercolor , blackwork , fineline , and even drawings cross stitch , there are options for every taste. But the complexity and breadth of the paint in this new visual trend has drawn the attention of many people and has grown more and more.
These projects are not just about dark edges or a delimited color palette. Called Blackout Tattoo , the concept covers the skin with solid blocks of black ink .
Like any new technique, these tattoos have fallen in love with many artists. Some fill their clients’ skin with large areas of paint that completely transform the body parts with color. Others mix in the middle of black, cool design elements such as lines, geometric shapes or dots. One thing we’re sure of: no matter what darkening approaches are used, these tattoos are nothing short of impressive.
Tattoo artist Chester Lee, aka Odd, from Singapore, says this unique alternative emerged in his studio when a client, instead of removing the tattoo she no longer wanted with a laser, asked him to add more ink to cover the unwanted design , to create an extreme hiding effect.
Today, some professionals are still using the Blackout Tattoo idea in this way, but others already see it as an alluring full-pattern style. The body as a true black and “negative” screen. In some cases, they use white paint or another color in detail, to help define some lines and create patterns.
