There is beauty in simplicity, especially when it comes to tattoos. While we love bright and vibrantly colored pieces there is something about blackwork tattoos that stands out in a manner that you just can’t achieve with color. By using nothing but black ink the focus is placed entirely on the design. Check out some of our favorite blackwork tattoos and the artists who created them in this gallery.
