Default Blackout UK artists

Hey all,

Long story short, I've got a tattoo which I hate and cannot stand! But recently have stumbled across some amazing blackout pieces and then white ink has gone over in certain areas and made an incredible design.

I've tried finding artists who are UK based that specialise within the blackout design, could anyone recommend an artist based in the UK?

Thanks,
Lemmi

Hey,

White ink over blackwork looks great, but takes a long time to accomplish. The black ink should be left to settle in to the skin for months before the white is tattooed and the white needs to be applied a few of times over different sessions to get a good effect.

Check out Hanumantra in Shrewsbury. His blackwork is incredible and heals solid. He won't do white over black but has done black over black a couple of times, which is pretty amazing.

For the white, i don't know of many people in the UK so someone else on the forum might be able to help there

Sorry if I sound naive, how does black over black work or look? Don't suppose you have any examples it sounds interesting!

Thanks again dude

The first name that came to mind was Tony Booth.

One of the best is Insamnia but heís in Melbourne, Australia. He does Geiger style dark bio over the top of black. It gives you an idea of whatís possible but itís a process with many layers.

I saw a sleeve recently on Guy Le Tattooer, blackout with Japanese waves in white that had been done by Filip Leu. It looked good and had held up over a couple of years. Others though Iíve seen have completely dropped out.

In terms of black work and white, I would maybe contact some people and float your idea. I donít think anyone specialises in it but you can ask people like Jondix if theyíd be interested. They can only say no, or ignore you. They might also have another suggestion that could work for you.

My lower arm is blacked out and I plan to get something similar to that so i'll post pictures later this year when it's done.

Also, not sure if you'd be in to it, but scarification over blackwork looks amazing

Jakub Hendrix doesnít shy away from the black and takes on some pretty gnarly covers too.

You'll need to make a sacrifice to the gods to get an appointment with Gakkin though. I think he's booked through 2020 at the minute!
