After the first artists who make tattoos in the dotwork style appeared in Russia, this trend has gained its admirers and has been developing rapidly for many years. The word dotwork is formed, as it is not difficult to guess, from two words: dot and work. And the name of the style can be conditionally translated as a dotted work.
As you have already understood, its key feature is that any picture is inked with the help of dots. The closer they are to each other, the darker and denser the contour of the pattern is. I suggest comparing dotwork with blackwork! Review the article and comment on what you prefer!
It may seem that tattooing is a relatively new phenomenon, but in fact the roots of this art go to the cultural traditions of the African tribes, the peoples of China, Tibet, India. Echoes of this trend can be found even in the old school tattoo, so there are no and can’t be clear boundaries.
Classic dotwork tattoos are certainly dot patterns of various geometric shapes. Once again, I recall that you can ink almost any picture in this style, from simple symbols at first sight, to voluminous portraits.
The main feature of this style from the point of view of the artist is his incredible painstakingness. Looking at the photos and sketches of tattoos in the style of dotwork, you can imagine how much time it takes to ink such a tattoo. Thousands and thousands of points make up a single story. It is an incredibly beautiful and exciting art imagination.
Nowadays, there are not so many artists of dotwork in our country. As a rule, we have to go to large cities in search for quality work, but the result is definitely worth it!
