Tattoos are a very popular and fashionable form of art that a lot of people wear on their skin. This form of art has evolved from an underground state to an accepted form of mainstream art. So, it is still being introduced to society as it is still being developed technologically and as a form of art. Because this form of art is new to society, a lot of people do not have a lot of exposure to this world of tattooing. So, just like we have been bringing you articles about different styles and trends of tattoos, here is another form of tattoo design that is very popular in the modern fashion world.
This form of tattooing is called ‘blackout’ tattoos. The name slightly suggests what this style is about. The bold designs of a lot of solid ‘black’ areas of the entire tattoo can be considered as a ‘blackout’ tattoo. It transforms your skin to a solid color; black. Most of the people who wear these blackout tattoos work their designs and other tattoos on their body as tattoos in the negative space.
This means that they create shapes, designs, and art in the areas where their skin is left without being tattooed. They use the natural color of the skin, leaving it as it is to create art on a block of solid black ink. Being a bit contrasting to most of the other styles which are designed in thinner ink designs, this type of design stands out from the crowd even among other tattoos. So, we thought of collecting some photos that people have posted about these ‘blackout’ tattoos online.
