Smooth Black and Grey Tattoos by Dotyink


Dotyink does the occasional color tattoos, but it’s his black and grey tattoos that stand out from the crowd.

Tattooing from Triumph Tattoo in Louisville, Kentucky, Dotyink’s smooth black and grey tattoos prove that talented artists can be found all across the United States.

Dotyink’s smooth shading is a thing of beauty. His portfolio consists of imagery such as realistic animals, mandalas and some top-notch lettering. The depth and dimension he manages to create with just black and grey ink is what makes his tattoos stand out from the crowd.

But don’t just take my word for it, check out Dotyink’s work and let me know what you think.
