60 Reasons Why You Need A Sketched Tattoo Design

Did you know that we get at least two emails a day (minimum) with questions regarding sketch style tattoos? All thanks in part to our popular list 40+ Fascinating Sketch Style Tattoo Designs no doubt, but when we put it together we had no idea it would take on a life of its own. 

The first time I laid eyes on a sketch style tattoo I instantly fell in love with it. So much so in fact that I immediately started collecting examples for no reason other than that I thought they were cool. Pretty soon I had enough for an article, so I wrote it, got bombarded with emails, and then proceeded to hate everything about sketch style tattoos and writing the same repetitive email responses day in and day out. But it’s been a while now and most of the animosity has worn off and now I actually appreciate the role sketch style tattoos had in launching our blog so I decided to revisit the idea and create a new article showcasing some of the best designs while at the same time introducing a few new artists who are known for their sketch style works.

Here they are.
