If there’s something that never goes out of fashion in the world of design, it’s tattoo art. With the passage of time, creative tattoo artists are working on new and innovative techniques and bringing them ahead for discerning tattoo lovers. One of these latest techniques has introduced watercolor tattoo designs. Watercolor tattoos are a combination between watercolor painting and tattooing. The watercolor tattoo process remains the same, same techniques and tools are used but the focus is on simulating the watercolor effect. The watercolor style is created using splatters, blurs, shades. There are no defined shapes and no outlines, watercolor tattoos allowing the artist to take on a different approach to the “traditional” tattoo. So if you are looking for something new for a first time tattoo or a unique option from the other tattoos which you already have, then watercolor tattoo would be an ideal option for you.
A real concern about watercolor tattoos is whether the ink of the tattoo will last, considering that there is no real pattern to the ink, no defined lines and the shading of a watercolor tattoo is comparatively lighter than a classic tattoo, which gives an impression that the tattoo gets faded with the passage of time. The truth is that a traditional tattoo will outlast a watercolor one, but eventually even the traditional tattoo will need a touch up as well.
With pros and cons, watercolor tattoos are beautiful, unique and permanent pieces of body art. Once you have decided that you can commit to it, find an artist who is capable of appreciating the design you want. It’s also extremely important that the artist has the appropriate skills to execute the best results. There are plenty of artists you can choose from who have become popular and have made a name for themselves in this amazing new area.
