Mists of Memory: Black and Grey Realism Tattoos

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

These black and grey realism tattoos will make you deeply yearn to capture a memory with new ink.

Black and grey realism is one of our favorite styles here at Tattoodo...artists that work in this vein not only depict their designs so incredibly that it blows our mind, but they also fuse their tattoos with their own personal aesthetic. This means that there is no end to the creativity that these masters hold within their hands! Some merge hyperrealism with surrealism, some do such realistic tattoos that it's hard to believe it's an image on skin...and some capture likeness as if it were a vision in a smoke filled dream. Regardless what it looks like, pieces like this really capture our imagination.

The other thing about black and grey realism, and generally as with tattoos in those hues, they heal incredibly well. They also age marvelously. You know that when you get a piece from an artist like this that it's not gonna be cheap, and rightfully're basically going to be carrying an insanely high quality masterpiece around with you your whole life that may as well be in a museum. Which...ya know, when you die...if you're really into it, you can have someone take your skin and preserve it so that your tattoo masterpiece will live on forever.

Maybe that's a lil creepy...but also, maybe not. All we know is that while you're alive you, your artists, and basically everyone you know or will ever meet will be stunned by the ink on your body. That's what black and grey realism tattoos are all about: expression, beauty, and a piece that you can treasure for a lifetime. We've brought together these pieces to show you just exactly what depths of creativity you can reach. Imagine that the entire world is at your fingertips, and you only have to choose a few things for your artist to depict to create your dream tattoo!!
