Most modern tattooing fits under this label. Illustrative tattoos don’t stick to any strict form, like Traditional or Japanese. There is a lot more freedom to interpret ideas and express meaning. It also allows for a wide array of style. It can be elegant and soft or bold and dynamic, realistic or characterized, tight and rigid or loose and flowy. It’s a flexible style that covers the widest subject matter. I love this style as it allows for the most freedom and the most originality. This tattoo style is gaining in popularity in Kelowna and the Okanagan.
