Black and Gray Tattoos: Joint Tattoos Come Clean!

Black and gray tattoos are generally believed to have started in prisons in the United States. This was probably due to the difficulty of prison inmates getting their hands on colored ink. When several tattooists such as California’s Jack Rudy and ‘Good Time Charlie Cartwright’ saw the work for the first time they realized that there was great artistic potential in adapting it for use in tattoo shops outside of prisons.

Black and gray tattoos like this one originated in jails in the United States but have since become a popular style of tattoo.

‘Jail house’ tattooists would jury-rig home made tattoo machines powered by any small, available motor. Since colored tattoo inks weren’t available and cigarette ash made an acceptable, easily emulsified pigment, the tattoos were invariably black and gray. They developed the refined, detailed style that has become popular these days.

The advancement of this underground technique was refined in the 1970′s, turning black and gray or ‘joint style’ tattoos into a mainstay of modern tattooing. Black and Gray is customary used for portraits or for achieving a very realistic effect. The artist’s concentration is focused on the line and shading of the piece. They can look awesome particularly if the tattoo artist is experienced with shading. Just like the name they are done only in shades of black and gray.

Are You Looking for Kanji Tattoos?

Posted by Admin in Tao of Tattoos on 04 6th, 2013

Are You Looking for Kanji Tattoos?

Kanji tattoos are basically ideographic characters. What this means is that each Kanji character represents a WHOLE object, idea, or meaning in a visually expressive way. Kanjis are a popular choice among those seeking Japanese style tattoo designs. With Kanji style characters, you can easily create and express nearly any meaning you want.

Example of Japanese kanji script.

However, it is a good idea to keep in mind before you decide upon a tattoo that kanji is based on a different form of language and is unlike English in its construction. The written Japanese and Chinese languages are composed not of individual letters but of ideographs or pictographs. Some characters consist of more than 30 strokes.

Example of Japanese kanji script.

If you don’t speak Japanese it is very hard to find characters that say what you want and are not something that will turn heads with native japanese speakers for all the wrong reasons. Kanjis are not really a traditional Japanese tattoo more a style of tattoo. If you are getting a kanji be sure that what you are getting done is not just something that means a lot to you and is going to age well but is accurate in its meaning.

Example of Japanese kanji script.

The popularity of kanjis in the West shows no sign of slowing down nor has it necessarily impressed many of those who speak or read Japanese or Chinese fluently. Kanjis may look cool to non Japanese or Chinese speakers but don’t always make sense to native speakers.

Bottom line…

Be sure what you are getting means EXACTLY what you think it does!
