Defining the Style

Ignorant Style Tattoos, also known as Outsider Art Tattoos, Shitty Tattoos, Fail Tattoos, DIY Tattoos or simply Ignorant Tattoos, are characterized by their crude, unpolished, and often amateurish appearance.

This style typically incorporates bold lines, exaggerated features, asymmetrical designs, and a disregard for traditional tattooing techniques such as smooth shading and intricate linework.

Its designs are usually ironic and self-referential, as satirical comments on the very idea of what a tattoo should be.

Critics argue that Ignorant Style Tattoos lack the skill and finesse of traditional tattooing, and they question the artistic merit of designs that appear crude and amateurish.

On the other hand, some critics also argue that the term “ignorant” itself is problematic, suggesting a lack of knowledge or understanding on the part of the artist.

They argue that labeling a style of art as “ignorant” is dismissive and disrespectful, overlooking the creative intention and artistic vision behind each piece.
