People With A Dark Skin Tone Should Get Colour Tattoos: Here's Why

It’s hardly news to anyone that tattooing is more popular than ever, but people with a dark skin tone always shy away from colour tattoos. It's a myth that can’t get colour tattoo when you have a dark skin tone, and it also easy for tattoo artists to say that you can’t tattoo colors on darker skin tones but it depends on the circumstance. Just as shades of skin vary amongst people of colour, so do the results of the tattoo. It takes an understanding of what colors work best and of how that particular skin tone usually responds to colors and the professional experience behind that. 


Tattooing any and all skin tones is a skill just like any other. The problem happens when the skill of working on darker skin is undervalued and dismissed as a practice. Tattooing light skin and dark skin are require two different skills. Dark skin accepts greens, yellows and white beautifully, if your tattoo artist says you can't have bright colours, find a new one. When looking for a style and artist for your next tattoo, make sure you feel confident in their well-rounded experience.
