Dramatic Dotwork Tattoos by Charley Gerardin

Forget what you've ever thought about dotwork tattoos and check out Charley Gerardin's tattoos.

Charley Gerardin works at Third Eye Tattoo in Melbourne, Australia.

Over the years I've seen Gerardin's work evolve from blackwork traditional pieces to increasingly detailed dotwork tattoos. There's the occasional minimalist linework tattoo, but it's his dotwork pieces that deserve your attention.

Even the most simple looking dotwork tattoo takes some incredible talent, so you'll be astounded by what Gerardin can produce in his more detailed works.
