Distinct Blackwork Tattoos by Ruth Rollin

Blackwork tattoos that are different from anything you've seen before.

Ruth Rollin tattoos out of Red Tattoo in Leeds, UK. Blackwork tattoos are what she's known for. Each piece is so distinctly different, from the imagery to the blackwork application and techniques used.

There's some beautifully intricate lacework designs, mixed in with simple linework pieces, and the obligatory skeleton tattoo. 

Any design ideas you present Rollin with, she takes them and hits a homerun!
