25 Groovy Black Tattoos

Sometimes the lack of many colors tells more stories than a thousand colors can. Sometimes a single color can portray all that you want, and do it with incredible richness. Sometimes there is one color that locks in all the dark shades of the soul and expresses an amazing lightness. This is the color black that packs a powerful punch in the world of tattoo designs. Patterns in just black look pure and simple, and bring out the design with skill and art.

Many tattoo designs use black for the outlines, and extend the outline with lighter and lighter hues to make fabulous patterns. Designs in black can be just a tiny giraffe with black spots tucked behind the ear, or a full back tattoo showing a group of small and large figures. The delicate shades of black can give a very soft look to the tattoo, such as in a design showing a manga woman figure on the arm. Many Black Tattoos use the richness of black to give a graphic design look to the tattoo. Areas of solid black alternating with shaded areas look wonderful and give an artistic look to the design. Graphic design inspiration can even bring to life the figure of Batman the hero through a detailed black design. The rare and beautiful form of a rose also looks super hot in simple black as it curves over a woman’s hip area, or makes patterns on her high-heeled leg. The same black color can be used for a powerful and bold look to make tribal patterns on a man’s hand or his back. Many designs also use only words or sentences in creative fonts to make stunning text tattoos.
