Anyone who has ever lived in or visited a large urban inner city is familiar with graffiti. And most of the time it’s looked down upon as being a criminal activity. But, there has always been the select few of us who have looked upon it as an art form. In fact, many of the designs can be quite impressive and beautiful. So, it was only a matter of time before this urban art form moved from the sides of buildings to being inked into our skins. Actually it wasn’t all that smooth of a transition, it’s been one that has slowly been creeping into the mainstream. Originally, this urban art moved from the side of buildings and ended up being done by prison tattooist. Then it started showing up in suburban culture. Now it has since burst into the tattoo scene and now quite a lot of people are looking to get a custom graffiti tattoo. And the graffiti tattoo in the picture is a perfect example of what can be done with a little talent and some colorful ink. When getting a design such as this, it’s wise to make sure you have the exact design that you want on paper first. Any modifications that need to be done are better corrected on paper before they get inked into your skin.
Most graffiti tattoos are gang names or something of that nature but this one appears to be either a persons name or the name of a town. This tattoo is certainly done in that distinctive graffiti style that we are all familiar with and it is good piece of work as well. It has good coloring and it is well drawn very much the way a lot of real graffiti looks.
