Over the years tattoos have continued to grow in popularity. This left artists pushing new limits to improve and outshine the tattoo world. Artists have been pushing the envelope with the collar, complexity, and scope of their designs. 

Other than the famous Sailor Jerry designs, which was created by Norman Keith Collins who was a prominent American tattoo artist in Hawaii who was well known for his sailor tattoos, new design have made their way into the light such as dotworkwatercolor, and cross stitched tattoos. 

But we can’t help but notice a new popular and striking approach that has been gaining recent attention. The new style is called blackout, and is a design which covers the skin with solid fields of black ink.

But as any other technique, how a blackout tattoo looks falls on a spectrum. One us where artists fill their client's skin with large areas of ink that turns entire body parts another colour, and another way is where people use the colour as a bold design element that's coupled with intricate lines, geometric shapes, or dots. 

Is this a new tattoo trend? It's clear that the blackout style definitely makes a strong statement.
