Dotwork Tattoo - It's Just a Magic
Isn't it cool when a few absolutely simple things come together in something truly grandiose? Then it's also very cool to watch large amounts of simple dots merging into a stunning piece of art!
There are many different types of geometric tattoos, and most of them are created using the dotwork technology. The tattoo artist must be very patient and very talented if he chooses this tattooing technique, because all complicated geometric designs and images are created with nothing but dots. So, the artist has to place carefully every single dot in the right place. Dotwork is the only tattoo technique that lets you achieve a great olmost 3D shading effect.
The Dotwork Technique
Most of the time the dotwork technique is used for religious, spiritual and ornament tattoos. Dots are also usually done with black, grey, and sometimes with red ink. Red colour is mostly used on dotwork ornament tattoos, because red ink creates a beautiful contrast effect. Some dotwork artists abandon the tattoo machine and perform their tattoos hand poked. This method requires a lot of patience, but it's also the best technique for getting all the details right.
