What Are Fine Line Tattoos?

Fine Line Tattoos…

Essentially, they’re exactly what they sound like. “A fine line tattoo is a subtle, delicate, and thin tattoo,” explains Iron & Ink Tattoo Artist, Wiwi. Furthermore, Foreverist Skincare Founder, Robert Boyle says that in appearance, fine line tattoos are often softer in shading as well as more delicate in their linework than other types of tattoos.

To get a fine line tattoo, both experts say that the tattoo artist will either use a single needle or combinations of small needles.

What Are the Benefits Of Fine Line Tattoos?

It depends on what you’re looking to get out of it, but there are several upsides to getting a fine line tattoo. For starters, Wiwi says that because they’re so discreet, everyone can get one without having to make a bold statement on their body. In fact, Boyle thinks that because of an increase in workplace tattoo acceptance, fine lines have grown in popularity. Plus, if you want to join the tattoo community without getting a thicker and bolder type of tattoo, fine lines offer a beginner-friendly entry point into it.

Then, there’s the factor of pain. While no tattoo will be completely painless, Wiwi points out that fine line tattoos hurt less as they use small needles. However, Boyle points out that placement can greatly affect how much getting a tattoo hurts, not to mention the skill level of the artist.
