15 Stunning Pointillism Tattoo
Pointillism tattoos are the heirs of two different types of arts. First, the traditional hand-poke tattoo art, and then the pointillism.
Pointillism is an artistic technique of painting using dots to create images and shadings. In contemporary tattoo art, pointillism tattoos are commonly gathered under the term of dotwork, but pointillism is more and more employed by artists and tattooed people to reconnect with the classic artistic roots of tattoo art. Dotwork is very used in geometric tattoos, especially those of impressive size, to give some delicacy to bold pieces. Pointillism masters are admired for their technique and jaw-dropping masterpieces: Nazareno Tubaro indeed, and also Tomas Tomas and Kenji Alucky. But if dots are coveted for sacred geometry, they are also the popular tool of those artists exploring the borders between neo traditional, graphic and engraving tattoos, for example the young Kamil Czapiga.
If you need a starting point for your next dotworks aka pointillism tattoos, then these delicate, elegant and also impressive tattoos should give you some shivers, if not inspiration...
