We understand how important details can be in a tattoo design!
But remember: don't choose lines that are too thin or too close together. This will increase the chances of your design smudging during application. Lines should be between 4px and 8px in width.
Here's what different line weights look like.👇🏽
💁🏾♀️ Pro Tip: the smaller the tattoo, the thicker the lines should be!
When are thinner lines ok?
Adding some thinner lines is a good way to add dimension to your design. The overall outline of a design should be 8px (see chart above!) but if it tapers off in some areas, that's totally fine! For example, check out the leaf design below - it has thick outer edges, but finer lines at the point.
