Shark Tattoos

Drawing with strong energy is done in different techniques, guided by individual preferences. Most shark tattoos involve the use of rich shades that allow you to draw in all their glory the sea predator and its surrounding habitat. Monochrome drawings also have a right to exist, concluding an incredibly powerful energy message in a laconic simple image.

Shark Tattoo Styles and Techniques

Masters of tattoo parlors fill a drawing of a sharp-toothed predator in techniques that imply special expressiveness and originality.

Old school

The style, the origins of which are associated with sailors and their life, does not lose popularity in modern tattoo art. The presence of a shark in the plot of a tattoo is often due to the sacred meaning of a colorful design made in color with many additional details, clearly outlined lines. One of the best areas for an old school tattoo is the shoulder.
