Contemporary Blackwork Tattoos
Today, people from all walks of life opt for blackwork tattoos, and many parlors even specialize in the style.
Some tattoo artists keep with tradition and use ink made of charred bone or wood and a method of “hand-tapping,” though many have adapted the tradition with a more modern process and approach.
Here are works by a number of blackwork tattoo artists today:
Geometric Sleeve Tattoos Visually Crystalize Across the Body
