Surrealism/Abstract

Inksearch Logo

Abstraction / Surrealism, although it is mainly a trend in high art, associated with the works of Salvator Dali, has found its place in the industry. Surreal tattoos do not have to refer to the work of this particular artist. An abstract tattoo may surprise you with its form, because the compositions are often based on contradictory, mutually exclusive elements. Artists creating surreal designs usually experiment with both color combinations and styles, breaking conventions and blurring the boundaries between them. It is difficult to say when exactly this trend was born. However, along with wider access to better equipment and ink, more and more artists are experimenting with tattooing techniques, creating unique designs and their own original styles. Inspirations for surreal tattoos can be both individual fields of art and science, as well as different states of consciousness, mysticism, magic or mythology.
