One of the most popular type of tattoos maybe the ones measuring 1-3 inches, often in black  ink. The designs are often generic; some people get them for trends, some keep it simple despite its personal relevance. These types of tattoos are also often looked down upon, often due to its mainstream nature. Nonetheless, nothing stopping micro-tattoos from hitting strong currents in the scene.

And before you call Jon a sellout or something though, hear him out. I mean, in a world of competitive artists from trads to blackwork, there has to be somebody to do this one right? “I think I have a better understanding of what women want. They present themselves elegantly,” he tells New York Post. “So being that tattoos are permanent, it should be thought out with a method that will look pleasing."

This particular style is also fit for the artist, seeing as he's on the lighter side when tattooing. “I have a pretty light hand,” says Jon to Refinery29. “I'm fast, so I have a lot of repeat customers because they love that.”
