Blackout tattoos have become a big new trend. It's basically when someone goes into the tattoo parlor and asks for a chunk of solid black ink to be placed over their skin. Some people say that blackout tattoos are dangerous, because they cover large portions of skin at a time and put too much ink into the body at once. Meanwhile, others just think they're plain beautiful. Decide for yourself:
1. Down the Back
Blackout tattoos don't have to be one big block of ink. You can still add some pretty designs to it.
2. Tattoo Sleeve
These tattoos look just as sexy on men as they do on women, don't you think?
3. Chest and Arms
Imagine sitting in a chair for long enough to get that much skin covered in ink? It sure would take a while.
4. One Arm
Another reason why people love blackout tattoos is because it's a great way to cover up the old, unattractive tattoos that they don't want anymore.
5. Shoulders and Back
When you see beautifully intricate details like this, it proves why some people are so obsessed with having art on their body.
6. Couple Tattoos
If you want to match your partner, this is the best way to do it. You'll look like two peas in a pod.
7. Adorned Arm
Adding a few dots at the top of your blackout tattoo is a great idea. It makes it look even more gorgeous.
8. Up the Wrist
You don't have to get a blackout tattoo from your wrist up to your shoulder. You can get a small area covered, instead.
9. Down the Forearm
You can always get designs placed inside of your blackout tattoos. It'll give them a pop of color.
10. Blended with Trees
You could even try getting a tattoo on top of your blackout tattoo. You can make them blend together pretty well.
11. Embellished with Stars
This fading effect is straight up gorgeous. This is a tattoo that anybody would be able to pull off.
12. All up the Arm
Anyone who says tattoos are unattractive have clearly never had an inked up man look at them like this.
13. Full Arm
Would you like to date a man with a tattoo like this, or is it too much for your taste?
14. Over the Wrist
This is simple blackout design. But simple doesn't mean unattractive. This one is just as nice as the last.
15. On the Shoulder
This is one of the best examples of a blackout tattoo. You have to admit that it looks pretty impressive.
16. The Entire Arm
If you're already covered in tattoos, then what's the harm in adding even more ink to your body? It'll help you look even more unique than you already do.
17. Half Blackout
You can always incorporate a blackout tattoo into a larger tattoo design. Something like this isn't too bold, but it is pretty beautiful.
These pictures prove that you don't need a clever tattoo idea in order to get in that chair. You can just get your entire limb covered in ink and you'll still look gorgeous. Would you ever get a blackout tattoo or are completely against this hot new trend?
