Blackout Tattoos Are A Bold New Trend Popping Up Around The World


“Blackout” tattoos have recently gained attention online as an extreme way to cover up old tattoos. The technique requires an incredible amount of patience and dedication. The technique gained notice recently when artist Chester Lee of Oracle Tattoo shop in Singapore posted a photo of an intense black out piece featuring a delicate, scalloped edge.

“That particular piece I [had] been at it for couple of months, about 20 odd hours,” Lee says.

If the black out technique is used to cover existing tattoos, you will notice negative lines from the previous tattoo showing through. This fact lends to a fascinating texture. No black out tattoo is ever the same.
