Are a unique form of tattoo art, which creates tattoo designs in the form of blotches and splashes of color.

As any other domain in the art industry, tattoos also know periods where certain things are in fashion and certain things are not. While some types of tattoos will forever be popular choices, like skulls, snakes, birds or characters in a foreign language (Chinese, Japanese and Arabic being the most popular), there will always be some people who will want something different and special.
