Sketch Tattoo

Sketch tattoos work best when their subject is in motion, creating a fluid work of art that looks like it might leap right off the skin. Both classic and modern, sketch tattoos are ideal for men who want timeless ink that can be easily added to or left alone. This style of art has a fresh from the drawing board feel, using sketch lines to create your tattoo. Nothing is perfect, and sometimes the lines don’t touch or close.
Sketch Tattoo
Sketch style tattoos have that unique “sketched” appearance that’s often associated with an artist’s preliminary drawings. You know, those drawings with the trailing lines that keep on going when only a portion of them was actually needed. Well, it turns out they make for some pretty interesting tattoo designs when executed properly. Sketch style tattoos are not as popular as say, watercolor designs but they’re quickly gaining traction in an industry with only a few solid styles of design. While numerous artists create sketch style tattoos every now and again—perhaps at the request of a client—only one artist has truly embraced the style and ran with it. They have the sweet appearance of looking sketched, and you will feel like you literally have a work of art on your body. These sketch tattoo designs have the preliminary lines still visible, and that’s what gives it the sketchy appearance. When the preliminary lines are left there, they make for some seriously intriguing tattoos that you will treasure always.
Although they are stunning designs, they aren’t as popular as the watercolor tattoos, but they are certainly increasing in popularity. There are so many tattoo artists out there that are embracing this style of tattooing, just make sure that you have an artist that is experienced with this method. If you are looking for a sketch tattoo, then take a look at some of these jaw-dropping images and run with them. Sketch tattoos are often “black and white” style, with lots of clean lines and small details that look as if the artist sketched them onto the skin using India ink or pencil. Artists sometimes use cross-hatching for shadow and texture. These pieces make excellent forearm, bicep, and rib tattoos. An artist who is both talented and seasoned will work with the shape of your physique in the area you want to be tattooed. This results in a more fluid piece that blends superbly with future or existing work, or compliments your body as a standalone tattoo. Sketch tattoos encompass freedom and reckless abandon. They range from wild and proud animals such as the wolf and lion, to winged creatures both real and mythological, to fantastic steampunk timepieces and gears, and even nautical pieces like anchors and ship wheels.
