Blackwork Tattoos That Transform the Body Into a Live Canvas


If there is a tattoo style that not many people will easily decide to have, this is the blackwork style. The designs here are bold and heavily painted with black ink leaving only a few blank spots. People who get this type of tattoo usually see their bodies as a piece of canvas and want to fill it with as many designs as possible and make it a lot more interesting that a blank piece of paper. Here are some of the most giant and eye-catching black work designs that you might see out on the streets.
