“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”
Leonardo Da Vinci
Tattooing Blackwork is simple: it consists only of lines, fills, and dotwork executed with a single tone, black. This style is one of the best to start tattooing as a beginner. Moreover, that is why, in turn, many people get it tattooed: because from its simplicity comes its unexplainable sophistication. As a tattoo technique, Blackwork gives rise to plenty of styles. It can be an engraving made only with lines; it can have lines and fills, leading to a vectorial style; it can also include dotwork, even verging on Realism. So much variety allows you to try many different things before deciding what fits you best (or your customers). By mastering only lines, fills, and dotwork, you can make any tattoo of any size and on the body part that your client prefers. Blackwork is a direct style, it does not beat around the bush, and therefore it has very few limitations; you will be able to tattoo everything that you, as an artist, are capable of creating.
Moreover, since tattooing is learned by tattooing, in this MasterCourse, in addition to talking about (and practicing) the different ways to design it, we quickly get to the essential part: practicing on synthetic and human skin.
Learning is good. Doing is better.
Mastering Blackwork is easy, there is only one secret: practice, practice, and practice again. To improve every day and make your time worth it, you need someone to explain, point by point, how to tattoo Blackwork technique from the basics. For this reason, at 10 Masters, we are launching a complete Blackwork MasterCourse in collaboration with the tattoo master Rebollo.
