Black Out Tattoos?

No, we’re not talking about the time you got that terrible tattoo while blacked out in Old Town Fort Collins, Loveland or Greeley. We’re talking about an actual Black Out Tattoo!

Forget watercolor, glitter and white tattoos, there’s a new trend in ink. While many tattoos have intricate designs and bright colors, the blackout tattoo involves large portions of the body being inked solid black. Arms and legs are the most common placement for the blackout tattoo, but some even get their chests, backs, and stomachs tattooed too.
