28 Sublime Blackwork Cat Tattoos

If you're not a fan of color, but a fan of cats, blackwork tattoos and clean lines, then you're gonna love every blackwork cat tattoo!

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

As much as we love cats, we're also suckers for stunning blackwork tattoos. Especially when they look as badass as these ones we have here. We hope you'll enjoy these 28 blackwork cat tattoos as much as we did!

If I were to get only one type of tattoo style for the rest of my life, I'd have to go with blackwork. It consists of clean lines, refined dotwork, and it suits very well with both dark themes and sacred geometric designs. Besides, not everyone appreciates color nor do everyone look for color in everything to please themselves. And, I promise- blackwork and cats it's a perfect fit!

Leave it to Caitlin Thomas to do some clean lines and clean dotwork. She can create a blackwork cat tattoo design that is difficult to resist.

We love how they managed to get the kind of shading only black and grey tattoos can usually achieve.

A little reminder that cats were worshipped hard by the Egyptians long ago...

We have here, three of tattoo artist and master blackwork artist Róbert A Borbás' cat tattoos in his signature flawless occult style.

If I'm not mistaken, he tattooed over scars in the picture above. Whatever the wearer's story may be, I admire how Borbás executed the tattoo perfectly.
