Dotwork Tattooing

Dotwork has always been by most favourite style of tattooing. As the name implies, dotwork tattooing consists mainly of single dots. As you can imagine, this can take much longer and requires a great skill and lots of concentration.

Traditionally, this style of tattooing was mostly used for religious and cultural artwork. Today however, dotworking is becoming increasingly more popular in tattooing!

Typically, the ink used is either black or grey but sometimes red as a contrast for the geometric dotwork styles. Not only does dotwork often mix with geometric style inking, it also merges with mandala and minimalist styles too.

My favourite kind of tattoos is mandala and dotwork. I personally have a few of these and plan to have a full dotwork arm sleeve! The intricacy of these tattoos makes them so beautiful to look at, and they always start a conversation.

Dotwork tattoos are so visually striking. Some people may think that just dots of ink can’t make something so outstanding, however if you get the right artist, you’ll be amazed.

The most incredible dotwork artist I have come across is Vana Chanelle. I first discovered her work on Instagram, and had the privilege of being inked by her a couple years ago when she did a guest spot at a studio local to me.

Vana’s work honestly blows my mind. It’s so precise and detailed, mixing bold lines, with thin lines and all the dots! If you haven’t yet already, please check out her work and admire the stunning dotwork tattoos she has created.

I’d love to hear your opinion on this style, and please share photos of your work and artists to check out too.
