  • Realism: These tattoos create images, which are extremely real. These do not have bold outlines but they have a lot of shading as well as contrasting colors and so the image looks lifelike. These could be animals, birds, insects, leaves or more.
  • Black and Grey: These tattoos are similar to realism tattoos but in these colors are not used. Only black ink and water is used. When the black is watered down, it makes it softer and grey. Using this technique various shades and hues are created. There are grey washes which are used as well and sometimes actual grey ink as well as white ink is used when certain portions need to be highlighted. These even have sceneries or figures.
  • American Traditional Tattoos: These tattoos have clean black outlines and are bold. They have a minimal color palette and use just primary colors. The designs which are part of these American traditional tattoos are usually daggers, roses or skulls.

  • Illustrative: These styles combine both the realism as well as traditional styles. They have bold outlines and a lot of color saturation. The shading is realistic and thus what is achieved is more of an illustration rather than it looking like a tattoo.
  • New school: Is a style which is animated and is akin to the illustrative style but it is more exaggerated than it. The images are usually caricatures. These tattoos normally personify animals or objects and these are usually in fancy clothing.
