For this collection, we wanted to show off some of our favorite blackwork negative space tattoos, which is such a great combination if you’re looking for a unique design, but want to include a ton of contrast with purely black ink.
What is a negative space tattoo?
A negative space tattoo is a type of tattoo that uses negative space (or the space around and between the subject of the tattoo) to create a design.
This can create the illusion of a floating image or give the tattoo more depth and dimension.
What is a blackwork tattoo?
Blackwork is a classic tattoo style that doesn’t use any other colors than black for the entire design.
If you like this style, but prefer another small splash of red, make sure to check out the unique Trash Polka tattoo style.
