Bold 'Blackout' Tattoos Make A Statement Without Bright Colors

I'm no stranger to interesting and unique tattoo designs. It's something that always intrigues me. What I look for in a tattoo is a bold statement that's bound to stand out.

If that's also what you're looking for, I've got another amazing tattoo trend for you to check out. It's called the "blackout" tattoo and it isn't for the faint of heart.

What exactly is a blackout tattoo, you ask?

Well, it's basically when a well-trained tattoo artist covers the skin with solid fields of black ink. It could be a large area of skin or just blocks. Either way, it's definitely an interesting approach.

Talk about taking a bold step with your tattoo choice here.

I dunno if this is something I would have the balls to do but if you do, I commend you. There's absolutely no turning back from this striking idea.

If you can't commit to something as drastic as the previous design, this half-sleeve might be right up your alley.

It's still very bold and unique, to say the least, but requires less skin to work with. I definitely dig it.

While we're on the subject of an arm sleeve here's another intricate design that covers the entire arm.

I can't get over the flow that this idea creates here. It's really beautiful and mesmerizing. I love this black and white tattoo.

Get swept away into another galaxy with this unique frog design.

Tattooing white ink over a black sleeve never looked so good. This piece is so fun and definitely eye-catching. It takes a great artist to pull something like this off without a hitch.

Do you feel like you're being watched?

Turns out you are by this interesting tattoo design, ha, ha! This is one awesome sleeve if I've ever seen one. I love how all the patterns are blending seamlessly here. This is super cool.

If you ever wanted to do an interesting pattern on your leg look no further than a blackout tattoo.

You will surely stand out with a special design that looks something like this. I dig how this idea blends black portions with various patterns and shapes.

Whoa, if this isn't making a statement, I dunno what is. Am I right?

That's some elaborate torso and sleeve blackout tattoo design. I have no idea how long something like this might take but my guess is that it's a work in progress.

OMG, look at this 'Edward Scissorhands' tribute tattoo.

I don't think I've ever seen anything as gorgeous as this. If I was bold enough I would totally get a piece like this one. I'm utterly amazed by this incredible work.

This sleeve takes blackout tattoos to the next level.

Here's another design that's definitely for those looking to make a statement with their design. This look might not be for everyone but she is rocking it.

Blackout tattoos are a popular choice for cover-up designs.

It makes sense since in many cases it's easier to get a cover-up than to try and remove a design altogether. This back piece was actually a cover-up if you can believe it.

I think I've saved the best for last with this incredible back tattoo.

Words cannot express how blown away I am by this spectacular look. I dunno who can actually pull it off but it looks absolutely breathtaking to me.

Can I just say 'wow'? How amazing are these 'blackout tattoo' ideas?

Are you bold enough to get one? I gotta say I absolutely love the idea. I just don't know if I could commit to something as crazy as this, haha.
