    Link: 40 Examples Of Watercolor Style Tattoos - They are done much like traditional tattoos and will last as long. The only problem is finding a really good artist.

    toeachhisown: Same here. If you`re a marine and you get Semper Fi shoulder tat, or something like that, okay, but otherwise I just don`t like them period.

    The colors are nice ... the designs are absolute crap. It looks like you just painted with your kid and didn`t bother to wash up. Did nice colors have to be blurred, splattered messes?

    New name and style for an old technique.

    It used to be called "ink whipping," and basically consisted of drilling the color into a particular spot like normal tattoo technique, but then the gun (usually with 6-8 needles installed) would quickly be lifted and moved in a consistent direction, allowing the ink to be embedded at evermore shallow dermal layers until the gun left the skin.

    This produced an air-brushed, or "whipped" appearance to the color. Usually it was done in small areas strictly as a color effect to enhance tattoos - never seen it done as an entire concept before.

    Interesting pics - thanks for sharing.

    Blending and Shading. If your inker doesn`t know how to do it...... leave.

    It is a practical way of identifying to everyone else, that you clearly are quite mad.

    I have been trying to find someone who does this well for a shoulder piece.. there is a place in Hamburg which does stunning work but way too far for me to go- and the cost would be prohibitive. It is the painterly feel to it I love..

    Not a fan. Keep wanting to wash it off with a wet cloth. But I guess chicks are into these things.

    I had a rash like that, once. The doc told me to stay out of the sun, and it would go away in time.
