We’re often asked about the origins and intricacies of fine-line tattooing. Fine lines are associated with thin, delicate designs where small needles are used. The fine-line work is the design, rather than shading and bold lines, and the artwork is generally black and grey, although colours can be incorporated.
WHAT IS A FINE-LINE TATTOO?
A fine-line tattoo is softer, thinner and lighter than traditional and old-school tattoo styles, and is often marked by a delicate elegance. Also known as micro tattoos, think botanicals, minimalist designs, handwriting, geometrical shapes and detailed portraits.
It’s worth noting that this style HAS to be performed by an expert with skill, precision, focus and a very steady hand. Fortunately, that’s Roxxi & Sioux Tattoo & Barber Shop in a nutshell – known to be one of the best fine-line tattoo shops in Melbourne!
