Blackout tattoos are tattoos that feature large sections of dark solid black ink, covering up areas of the body. These tattoos are often seen as bold statements that create an impactful look. Blackout tattoos often have a deeper meaning and are commonly used to signify grief or an important event or memory in an individual’s life. The darkness of the ink represents the darkness or environment of grief or grief’s ability to fully consume one’s thoughts, memories, and life. Blackout tattoos are also used to celebrate rebirth and encourage people to move on from difficult times and move towards brighter more positive futures.
