Dotwork tattoos are one of the most intricate styles of contemporary tattooing. Dotwork tattoos are created with nothing but small dots meaning the artist must have incredible patience with their work and must be equally skilled and talented as it takes a steady hand to place each dot in the right place. A number of specialist dotwork artists have turned away from the modern tattoo machine and are performing dotwork tattoos with traditional hand crafted needles and sticks. Dotwork tattoos have become a style on their own but still take influence from the tattoo tradition, and what can be more traditional in tattooing than a skull!!

Skull tattoos have been around since the conception of modern tattooing and if ever it were to end the skull would still be present. So of course it is no surprise to see that skull tattoos have found their own place in the modern evolution of dotwork tattoos…let’s face it, it couldn’t really be a tattoo style without the occasional skull thrown in for good measure and as it would happen here are 15 dotwork skulls for you to enjoy!
