You can immediately spot the ornamental details, brilliant blackwork and dotwork- this is exactly what makes it original. The tattoo designs by Nik Blackbird can definitely be described as bold and dark yet executed with a delicate touch. Every single tattoo is on point with its dramatic look, sharp lines and skillful shading using my favorite technique- dotwork. This looks especially good in his geometric tattoos.
Mandalas, sleeves, animals, symbols- you just have to pick!
