These Intricate Tattoos Are Created Entirely With Dots
As much as we love the artful blending of watercolor tattoos and the bold lines of traditional ink, we can't help but swoon over the unbelievable artistry that lies within the dot work technique. Renowned for its use of hundreds of tiny dots to create intricate images, dot work is all about shading and highlighting with as few lines as possible. The result? Head-turning, attention-grabbing tattoos you'll want to take a closer look at. Ahead, we share 16 of our faves.
