Top 100 Favourite Tattoos – Part Two


If you asked me over a decade ago, when I got my first tattoo, what my favourite tattoo styles were I would have said traditional and Japanese. And, if you asked which I hated I would have quickly replied that it was black and grey realism. How times and opinions have changed. I have a traditional style rose on my knee and a Japanese (partially hand poked) bakeneko on my calf, and black and grey realism is the style I (most likely) intend on choosing for my sleeves – lucky I didn’t get my whole body tattooed back when I was younger.

After all these years watching tattoo-related shows, reading books and magazines, and scrolling through social media, I feel that I now have a proper appreciation for tattooing as a whole; no matter the artist or style. Creativity and execution are what I look for in a good tattoo, and the tattoo style or tattoo artist has little influence over whether or not I like a particular piece.

If any of these pieces catch your eye, be sure to read the captions as I’ve added links to similar posts which you may enjoy.
