This year has been all about one thing: how we can be edgier. From “health goth” taking over the fashion scene (like, even Obama took part) to black becoming the official color of summer, spring, fall and probably winter, this is the year to embrace your edgy vibes. And *nothing* is edgier than dotwork tattoos.

Combing the beauty of the blackwork piece with the textured ~pizazz~ of a whole lotta dots, dotwork tattoos set you apart from the crowd, and set your fave pieces apart from the smattering of tattoos that cover our bodies (because, hello, we all know ~us millenials~ all have a bunch of tattoos *eyeroll*).

Here are some of our fave dottwork tattoos:

1. This spacey piece

Because space tattoos are always in style.

2. This small world

MAJOR heart eyes.

3. This stunning work

Just, wow.

4. This tiny dotwork tattoo

So little, and so unique!

5. This eerie piece

For the ~scary~ among us.

6. This gorgeous vase

Super chic.

7. This sweet family

Ah, our hearts!

8. This absolutely killer portrait

Really, truly incredible.

9. This adorable jar

Absolutely sweet.

10. This lovely hand


11. This jellyfish

Because a dotwork tattoo in jellyfish tattoo is straight magic.
