We understand how important details can be in a tattoo design! But there are a few things to keep in mind when finalizing your design.
💡 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 how the leaf design below - it has thick outer edges, but finer lines at the point.
