Fine line tattoos, are typically achieved thanks to the improvements made with tattoo machines, needles and inks. Fine line tattoos are generally small, and not strictly but generally monochrome.
This tattooing style is typically achieved with single needles such as a three round liner, which has three needle tips.
These tattoos will either bleed [or] spread overtime, like your average tattoo, or will fall out in places and not look as legible as when first done. Doing your research and making sure you go to someone who specializes in fine line tattoos may help you avoid this style looking way worse in real life than it does in the day you get it. The tattoo artist needs to be light with the hands or she or he will blow it out, making it look blurred and bigger than it should.
With fine-line tattoos you need to keep a close eye on them as they heal. They’re a little more high-maintenance in the sense that you want to keep them moisturized or they scab, which may fall off too early and take the pigment with it. You can tell you need a touch-up within three weeks of the tattoo. That's why tattooers who specialize in fine line offer complimentary touch-ups as a result. Something to keep in mind wherever you go.
