Landscape tattoos are a relatively new concept. Let me rephrase that. Quality color landscape tattoos are a relatively new concept. Why is this you ask? It all boils down to a combination of two factors.
First of all, the development of higher quality inks with vibrant colors provided artists with the tools they needed to execute works with greater detail and broader color schemes. Previous limitations due to ink quality and color availability were now things of the past. This coupled with the emergence of the hyper realism trend mean’t that whatever artists could dream up could now and was now being inked.
Scenic tattoos encompassing sweeping vistas and picturesque sunsets have a unique allure that puts them in a special category all by themselves. In this article we’ll explore a variety of different examples; from small and creative, to grandiose masterpieces that will leave you in awe.
