Adorn your body with impressive black ink and ornamental style tattoos...

Tattoos are not always figurative. With the explosion of geometry, neo tribal and patterns, bodies are covering themselves with ornamental style tattoos, more and more ambitious and exquisite. In these sensual designs, glorifying curves and limbs, the creative artists are finding inspiration in ancient arts such as mehndi, ethnic tattooing, sacred geometry, mandalas and Art Deco. They are also borrowing from jewellery and fashion with lace details. The techniques used for ornamental style tattoos are also numerous. Linework is indeed very visible, with delicate dotwork and bold blackwork. Most of them are made with black ink, but you are also free to put some colors on your skin. Ornamental style tattoos are some the highest forms of tattooed elegance. If you agree, take a look at these wonders of ink...
