96 Ink Art Examples

From Latin Tattoos to Cult Humor Ink

— April 6, 2010 — Fashion
I have seen some crazy tattoos over my lifetime, but I must say that when someone decides to “have ink done” and gets a tattoo of a video game character across their shoulders, or the WordPress logo on their calf, it makes me kind of wonder where their head was at the time.

The new ink craze keeps places like LA Ink and Miami Ink in business, making black ink body adornments that puts human imagination on open display. While others may wonder where ink that makes a tattoo comes from, I just wonder how much ink is too much (I know a guy who has some ink that starts at the bottom of his foot, and trails up the back of his leg, the sides of his back, and finishes on the sides of his neck).

Of course, if the powers that be ever decide to alter the ink recipe to allow for the creation of ink cartridges that can print tattoos directly to the skin of a person, then we will see EVEN MORE outlandish ink creations. Admit it. Don’t you think it would be fun to get one that says “I just got fired from a lousy job, and all I got was this lousy tattoo?" Or maybe it’s just me (who knows). In the meantime, while you take a break from studying ink history and ink making, check out these ink_inspired trend posts!
