With abstract tattoos, anything goes. They can consist of a bunch of deconstructed shapes or splatters of paint - either way it wouldn't matter because the whole point is that they are not supposed to have any solid form with a concept that's a one-size-fits-all.
That's what's so great about abstract tattoos. You can feel whatever you want to feel and you can see whatever you want to see in an abstract piece. In fact, it doesn't even require one to make convoluted interpretations. You simply have to appreciate it rather than understand it. This challenges a very common idea toward tattoos that each has to mean something to the wearer for it to be substantial.
The abstract style is great for potential wearers who appreciate alternative styles of tattoos that connect to them on a visual level, as opposed to a tattoo with a concrete meaning.
Flowing freely around no definite theme, abstract tattoos come in all shapes and sizes. They can be made by making a series of brush strokes, paint drips, veiny distortions, and a whole lot of colors that clash and cling on to one another.
