Thick outlines, delicate dotwork and smooth shading give Sarah Herzdame’s tattoos that delicate touch.
Tattooing out of Berlin, Sarah Herzdame specializes in blackwork tattoos, with a focus on dotwork with bold linework.
Soft and bold are the antithesis of each other, however they’re terms quite fitting to Sarah’s work. Sarah’s use of skin breaks in her work allow her tattoos to breathe, to become one with the body they’re placed on. The subtlety and intensity of dotwork builds up various shades of black and grey which pairs nicely with the bold outlines.
