Do you like Color? or Black and Grey?

Recommended Posts

when getting tattooed what do you like better?

personally I tend to like black and grey more, it kinda feels alive or something to me when I see a good black and grey tattoo, kinda what I think of when I think of the word tattoo, but than some stuff looks so good with color like traditional for instance, its crazy how good the tattooers have got nowdays, some of the stuff almost seems too good to be a tattoo, like it should be in a gallery or in some rich fucks house, is there such a thing as a tattoo that is too good?

I guess this turned into a two part question-

I like looking at pretty colours, my wife has pretty pale skin and all of her tattoos are colourful. Me, I have some with colours some without but I think black and grey looks better on me... if I can get away with using some colours on tattoos with a lot of detail I'll choose to put in some colour.

i enjoy both though i'm covered mostly in colour tattoos. i think i get a little more excited about color tattoos but thats mostly due to the style it's executed in for example, i love b&g style tattoos but not so keen on traditional tattoos done in black and grey. also i much prefer b&g portraits, not into colour ones at all.

I used to say I'd only ever get black and grey tattoos. One of my favourite artists said I'd change my mind in no time. She was right.

That being said though, I do love to see other people's black and grey tattoos- I think as long as they're wonderfully executed, it doesn't matter too much.
