Many colors! If you’re an ink enthusiast it’s hard not to smile at the thought of all the different ways to use the endless palette of hues.
Reds, blues, greens, the entire rainbow if that’s your prerogative. Of course black and gray tattoos will never be out of style, they’re classic and they can be done with elegant detail or have perfect simplicity, either way black gray looks great. Colorless class is wonderful but would you want to spend your life watching only black and gray movies? Adding color offers a different level inspiration.
One of the first questions a tattoo artist asks their client is; color or black and gray? Color or no color weighs on how much a tattoo costs. If you don’t have a solid answer yet, consider what you’re working with. What’s the subject of your tattoo? Certain elements have a stronger impact when done in color such as oceans or sunsets, things that have trademark colors, not saying either of those must be done in color, it’s just best to picture the tattoo both ways. Another key question is; where’s the tattoo going to go? Placement is always an important factor. Will the tattoo affect your job? There’s no doubt that a colored sleeve shouts louder than one done in black and gray. So before go under the needle consider how the tattoo will look in both styles. Should it be black and gray, or would the use of color make the design more favorable? Will the placement be obvious to onlookers? Below you’ll see watercolor works by the famed tattoo artist Sasha Unisex and vivid pieces by Megan Massacre, two artists who knows how to wield the color sword just right. Have fun scrolling through, see if color works for you.

Best for last, not just because of the placement and pose, or because This guy is as whimsical as he is fierce. It's because of the story. M.M.'s client got this tattoo as a symbol of sobriety not only is she sober now but she always has been. The owner of this tattoo have never done drugs or had a single drink. Something like that is worthy of taking pride in.
