Blackout Tattoos Are The Hottest New Trend In Body Art

People are covering entire sections of their skin in black ink.

I have a tattoo. One. It’s very tiny and it’s located on my back, behind my right hip. It’s small and feminine and I absolutely love it. I’ve wanted to get another one for years, but I’ve just procrastinated and haven’t gotten around to it, which is probably a good thing because I’ve changed my mind about what I want a million times.

While we’re used to seeing tattoos as vibrantly colored body art that can range from tiny to full body coverage, there’s a new tattoo trend that’s sweeping the body art world. Once used as a method to cover up ‘mistake’ tattoos, the blackout tattoo is now a trend. It’s actually pretty amazing, if you’re willing to commit to having an entire part of your body covered in black ink.

While once used as a method to cover up old ink, blackout tattoos are quickly becoming a hot trend.
