Black Bear

Black Bear I'm not sure what kind of bear this is, but since the ink is black, I'm calling it a black bear.

UPD:

This black bear tattoo is a popular choice for those looking for a simple yet meaningful tattoo. The black ink creates a bold and powerful image, and the bear is a symbol of strength, courage, and leadership. The bear is also an animal that is often associated with the spirit world, so it can be a reminder to stay connected to one's inner strength. The tattoo can be placed anywhere on the body, but the most common placement is on the arm or shoulder. It is also a great choice for those who want a tattoo that is both stylish and meaningful.

It almost looks like all of these are from the same person.

I've never seen tattoos like that before. Pretty cool though!

These are all amazing!

These tattoos are so elegant and beautiful! Iranians are so amazingly creative.. :)

The cat! Love it!! All of them are so unique and awesome!!

Incredible piece of art

It is by the same artist. And it is one line but the artist includes pointillism to shade and make the tattoo more 3d. This particular artist includes the 3 dots on each as a signature type process on each design

This is really nice but I will never get a tattoo!
