Styles of Tattoos

Just like any art form, tattoos can be expressed as line drawings, paintings, cartoons, a simplified or exagerated portrait(caricatures) or even as airbrushed creations. Tattoos may be classified into distinct styles, much as painting may be classified into the styles of impressionism, realism, cubism, etc. Each style incorporates specific artistic elements which many are not familiar with. So here’s a look at tattoos, not as a form of rebellion, a health hazard, or a display of “coolness,” but as an art form.
