Styles

There are many different styles of tattoos these days. And when I say many I mean:

American Traditional

Traditional Japanese (Irezumi)

Realistic/Realism

In this section I will go into detail into each one to help you make sense of it all and understand which style might work for you. There is no right or wrong here, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?

You might think you like or dislike a certain style but I encourage you to explore as many examples as you can. When you find an artist who specializes in a certain style I’m sure you will be amazed by what they can do.
