Linework is a modern tattoo style. It is the branch of dotwork, but the picture is created by lines, not dots. Lines have to be strict and neat, because the volume and composition of a linework tattoo depends from the quality of lines. Usually artists combine different techniques. For example, they can make a frame by linework and a shadow by dotwork, or put some colorful spots, or make some blackwork. Here you can see many variations of linework tattoos.
