Tattooing is a very old kind of body art. This body art was practicing in different regions some years ago; it becomes a fashion statement in the recent years. Some of the popular tattoo designs chosen by people are butterfly tattoos, celtic tattoos, cross tattoos, dragon tattoos, fairy tattoos and tribal tattoos. Some people even opt for designs like zodiac signs, celestial symbols or their beloved’s name. With the increasing popularity of this body art, tattoo artists are coming up with simple, modern and intricate designs.

In the art of tattooing, ink of different colors will be inserted into the different layers of the skin. It will remain there as a permanent design. Nowadays tattoo parlors are offering designs ranging from abstract tattoos to stylish tattoos. Let’s check different types of tattoos.

Abstraction tattoos – Commonly used shades for this type of tattooing are black and classic grey. Abstraction tattoos are commonly made around the chest, navel, arms and upper back. Some of the popular designs used for abstraction tattooing include tribal style, Celtic style, Chinese symbols and English alphabets.

Naturalistic tattoos - This tattooing method involves minute detailing and shading. This gives the tattoos a realistic touch. In this type of tattooing method, tattooing artists carve faces of prominent peoples faces. Naturalistic tattooing requires more time and great artistic talents.

Dedication tattoos- This type of tattooing involves the craving of designs like the heart and the name of a banner or the insignia of a military regiment. As the name indicates this tattooing can be done as dedications, for the living one or for the passed away. This tattooing is not popular in the present times, as it expensive than other tattooing methods.

Simplification tattoos – In terms of designs, this type of tattooing method has no limitation. Most commonly chosen tattooing designs are animal shapes or Zodiac signs. Ladies prefer to carve flowers and heart on her arms.

Complex tattoos – As the name indicates, this tattooing method is more complicated than other methods. Most of the designs are a combination of different images. Some of the popular complex tattooing designs includes traditional Japanese body suits and a mix of different images.

In ancient times some tribal group created tattoos by carving designs on their skin and putting ink, ash or other coloring agents on it. The tattooing method commonly followed in Japan was tebori. In this method, different colors of ink will be inserted under the skin using non-electrical tools.

Nowadays the tattoo artists are using electric tattooing machines to carve images on the skin. The needles attaches on the machine will insert ink into the skin. This present method is more hygienic compared to traditional methods as the needles on the electric tattooing machines are disposable in nature. However, there are risks. Some of the risks involved in tattooing are allergies, removal problems, skin infections and various diseases. Like the common saying, No Risk No Gain’, take preventive measures before starting tattooing process.
