    Default Beautiful/cool tattoos

    the vast majority of tattoos i've seen are fucking ugly and/or amateurish, or ridiculous trendy shit girls get on their ankles and shoulder blades, like butterflies and little flowers and, in more recent times, stars and birds. or tramp stamps.

    but here are some i thought are cool designs, well made and cool loooking.
    also, and this is more of a personal assessment, i think tattoos look best on people with very distinctive styles (nothing worse than the suburban shopping mall prom look with a tattoo on her foot or shoulder). and i tend to think they look best on men. or at least that's been my experience anyway.

    dopamine.
    this one's nothing spesh but i thought it was cute.


    this is pretty full on but it's well done, at least the middle part. i hate that nasty tribal looking shit on his arm:













    cute and nerdy:






    this one's funny and i like the drawing style.


    love this:


    i usually hate foot/ankle tattoos but find they work better when it's a great design and if you just go all out, instead of a rinky dinky lame flower.





    very large but the artwork is amazing:





    this one grosses me out but at the same time it's very cool artwork and very well done:


    simple but i like it and i like the placement:


    i usually hate upper arm/shoulder tats on women but this works. and it's awesome.


    ditto:


    love this:


    striking:


    i really like this one.






    birds are getting all trendy and shit but i still think they can be beautiful if well done and nicely placed.


    i love this one. it's very old school/nautical and i love the stark black and white.

    Wow, those are amazing. I never knew that the colors could be so vivid.

    These were my faves as well! I'm booking myself a session in September as a bday present to myself! Interestingly enough, the first pic looks similar to what I'm planning.

    That first one is so beautiful (I just don't like the bugs). You'll have to post the finished result!

    These are the only two I like but the top one is on a dude, right? Seems a bit too delicate for a man. The bottom one reminds me of Sweetie's old avatar.

    i think it's cool - i like the ink/paint 'splatters' and the colour scheme.

    I got tons more of pictures like those. Each time I see such a nicely done tattoo (even though I don't like all of the motifs) I have to pity the ones with their shitty tattoos more.

    Yeah the artwork is well done and the tattoo artist is amazingly talented but some of these are too much.
