What is an engraved tattoo? While an extension of script tattooing, an engraved tattoo is one that gives the appearance that the text/design is etched and gouged into the skin. Think of it like you would when imagining a woodworker using a gouging tool to “carve” a design into timber. Feel free to watch this wood carving video as reference if ASMR is your kind of thing.

While any tattoo shop in Vancouver BC can do script (at least they should be able to) few are able to successfully pull-off the concept that we’re discussing here today. If you dig the aesthetic of an engraved tattoo and you’re located in the BC Lower Mainland you will want to read ahead for details on why Sleight of Hand is where to get your next piece completed.
