Crimson, Cardinal and Scarlet: Red Ink Tattoos

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

In this collection of red ink tattoos, we grabbed up some pieces that used crimson in creative ways.

There are many colors to choose from, so when an artist or client settles on just one color to spotlight, it's usually a true stylistic choice that pushes the design to a whole new level. For this collection, we've pulled together some pieces that use red as an aesthetic choice. In fact, these red ink tattoos are pretty unique particularly for their use of the color...whether as a detail or used for the entire design, each of them are so special, that we're sure the collector will love for years to come. And even if you aren't down with crimson tones, just imagine what using one color can do for your next tattoo!

Now, these red ink tattoos are definitely stand out, but we also are always here that you not only get some killer ink from the best artist or shop ever. The one reason why artists tend to prefer working with black and grey inks is that, not only do they age beautifully, but people usually just don't tend to have issues with the pigments. Sometimes red ink tattoos, like white ink tattoos, can cause some difficulty with the skin for some. However, keep in mind that this percentage is low, and if you have any doubts, you can always consult with your artist.

That's why our directory is so useful. We have it set up so that you can find the best artists out there for that particular style you're aiming for, but it's also so you can make a super educated decision about your needs and wants. We not only have our directory for this, but guides, articles, and an insane archive with tons of images to get you inspired. We're here to help you with any tattoo related need...and if you haven't already, check out our app! Finding great tattoos has never been easier.
