Decorative Blackwork Tattoos by Nikki Snyder

Turning bodies into pieces of art- one (skin) canvas at a time.

At Folk City Tattoo in Suffolk, Virginia, Nikki Snyder is taking boring and plain skin, and making it beautiful with black ink.

Snyder's tattoos aren't your usual blackwork pieces. They're highly decorative and intricate pieces of art. There's beautiful dotwork, mandalas, and pieces reminiscent of wallpaper, lace and fabric, in the best way possible. 

There's no need for jewelry when tattoos are your accessory. Blackwork tattoos aren't tacky, they're timeless - plus, black ink goes with everything.
