If trads or watercolour just ain't doing it for you then we're giving your eyes a little feast—nothing short of blackwork, dark elements, and occult-inspired tattoos. This isn't exactly a style, rather a theme. I found a few artists who do mainly “occult”-themed or sinister-looking stuff like Anrijs Straume and blackworker, Robert Borbas. Kinda like what Paul Acker did with horror colour realism tattoos.
These tattoos are basically just dark stuff, featuring esoteric elements that are often associated with evil and all that. Nonetheless, it's still an interesting theme to play with in tattoos, to deviate from the usual, cheery and generic “bad ass”themes in most tattoos.
