Dot Work

Intricate designs normally done in black or grey using a stippling method where shading is replaced by dots. The designs are usually geometric, but it can really be used in almost anything (animals, skulls, flowers).

Some may recommend to go to an artist that uses a hand poking technique rather than a tattoo gun, but it will take longer. Regardless of the technique dot work tattoos generally take more time than a shaded tattoo.
