Lately I have been more and more interested in tattoos and more exactly as an art form. Being a doctor and working with people, and a designer on the side, I can understand pretty well this art and I respect it and the artists practicing it.
I respect first of all the permanent nature of this art. Unlike traditional graphic artists, a tattoo artist doesn’t work with layers that can be edited or deleted. Once the artist makes the design, there’s little he can edit until the end. That happens unless we are talking about temporary tattoos which can be removed.
Tattoo artists are first of all graphic design artists. You can’t tattoo if you’re not good with the pen and paper.
Tribal tattoos are some of the most beautiful types of tattoos and can extend to very large parts of the body. Below there is a showcase of 20 beautiful tribal tattoos.
