Is there a difference between colour packing and shading?

Is there a difference?
Iv seen two solid black tattoos lately one being tribal and one just some black shading at the background of a realistic piece.

now these look so different yet i belive its the same colour pure black, could it be a shading tecnique? The shading on the realistic background looked so smooth yet the tribal looked solid and never going to fade, hope that makes some sense?

color packing = solid color - black or any other color
shading = gradient shadows and values - the main technique in most black and grey work (especially realism)
