Care for a bold visual statement? Forget watercolor, glitter and white tattoos, there’s this new trend of blackout tattooing your body.
Embracing past mistakes is an approach that the tattoo community is familiar with – whether it’s a misspelt calligraphy on the arm or the name of an ex-inked on the shoulder. If laser removal is an expensive way of “dusting” them, blacking out tattoos – essentially, coloring them in – is a cheaper, and often more effective, solution.
Arms and legs are the most common placement for the blackout tattoo, but some even get their chests, backs and stomachs tattooed too.
