About This Quiz

Like many different art forms, tattoos come in different styles. Depending on the type of person you are, your experiences and your tastes, the style of tattoo that will best flatter you will vary. The decision is important because for the most part tattoos are permanent.

Some of the most popular styles include Polynesian or tribal, Irezumi or traditional Japanese, American traditional, new school, neo-traditional, geometric, trash polka, surrealism, black and grey, realistic and portraiture, watercolor, biomechanical and dot work. Are you familiar with all of these, and do you know which would best reflect your style and your lifestyle?
