Recently, some friends told me that he wants to tattoo but he doesn’t know if color tattoo is better or black and white is better?
Today Jill will talk to you about this issue
In all tattoo designs, except for the stippling and tribal totem styles, which are almost black and white, the other styles of tattoos are black and white and colored. Let’s first explore the advantages and disadvantages of black and white tattoos and color tattoos.
Black and White Tattoo
Black and white tattoos are pure and elegant, giving a sense of stability,The three-dimensional sense of excellent black and white works is shocking, and is not disturbed by other colors. The monochrome picture performance is more intense when the light and shadow are contrasted.
Shorter production time compared to color tattoos，pain is lower than color
Especially on dark skin, contrast is stronger than color tattoos
Relatively less affected by the sun’s sunshine, because even if they fade, the contrast is still obvious
Black and white are neutral, it does not conflict with the color of your clothes
For the same tattoo teacher, the price of black and white tattoos is generally lower than that of color tattoos.
Features of Color Tattoos
Color tattoos are more dynamic than black and white tattoos. Bright and gorgeous colors give people a stunning feeling, and at the same time there will be more creative space for color combinations and inspiration
From the production time, color tattoos will take longer than black and white tattoos. Complex color tattoos take twice or even three times as long as black and white tattoos of the same size
