None More Black Than Blackout Sleeve Tattoos

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

The only kind of blackouts we really enjoy any more are these blackout sleeve tattoos

Perhaps no piece of body art draws the eye the way a blackout sleeve tattoo does. This unique aesthetic choice is like a black hole, but not in the pejorative sense of “black hole,” mind you. Much like nothing escapes a black hole, we just cannot take our eyes off of these sleeves.

We can’t help but think of the “none more black” bit from Spinal Tap when looking at these sleeves. If you’re as impressionable as we are, you’re now considering what your life would be like with a blackout sleeve tattoo. You could always grab the nearest sharpie and try it out for a couple days. Or you could just take the plunge. We’ll leave that decision entirely up to you.
