I have been tattooing fulltime for 4 years, completely custom work and have no idea what technique you are talking about lol. When it comes to making stencils for portraits, you never add shading of any kind, it will blur the stencil. The more simplistic when beginning a tattoo the better. Sorry if I come off bitchy, but it is hard when people who know nothing of your industry tell you how it's done (not specifically directing this at you Joe). I think what you mean by "tattoo designers" is a flash artist. I don't tattoo premade tattoos off a wall, I draw my own pieces :)

And thank you! It is a good job but has it's ups and downs like anything else :) I am sorry I didn't mean to hijack this thread lol! From one artist to another, here is my deviant page if you wanna check out my tattoo work. I don't have any paintings or other media up, I am horrible just for updating the tattoo work lol!

I would imagine! Dealing with people in general has its up and downs. Now I have to ask, what did you use to practice getting use to skin as a texture? I have heard everything from pig skin to whatever of your own body parts you can reach. (A lot of inside calves/thighs....lol) Don't worry about Hijacking, Tattooing fascinates me to no end.

I would love to look through your Deviantart! I need to update mine too, I only have a handful of art and a few more pictures.

Awesome work! I guess everyone has their own methods... I'm just going by what I was told and saw. I thought about it and spent a few days at a tattoo studio and the work they did was amazing. They even did my tattoo.

Much like this:



Maybe I'm explaining it wrong. Thus, my quotes. OR maybe we are referring to a person who designs tattoos and one who actually does them? : /

Joe- not all people who design tattoos are tattoo artists, some just draw what in the industry is referred to as flash. Flash are random subject matter pictures that some people choose like temporary tattoos to have stuck on them. TattooISTS are people who can not draw and only tattoo flash. Tattoo artists draw their own pieces to fit muscle structure and compliment the body's flow. There is a hierarchy :p also tattoo artists find words like tat, tattie, inked etc kind of insulting lol. We are weird :p also please don't watch that god aweful show "tattoo school" on TLC, the entire industry has boycotted it because it's a slap to our face. I won't go into anymore of a rant about it, let's just say hepititus will be an added bonus of anyone dumb enough to let those fools touch them.

Lie- I do not have any tattoos, I am a rarity. Trust me I plan to be sleeved, I just see so many young people get into the industry and tattoo themselves or get lots done and then have no room for other pieces down the road. I am a planner and want to get it right the first time around. I also want to get pieces the same way you would buy art in a gallery. Go to artists I admire and say, sleeve me up Scotty!
As for what I started on, I used good ol ham hock. Has wonderful contours and shapes and provides difficult angles in which you have to hold your hand to achieve good lines, much like an ankle or wrist or knee of a client.

Here are the line arts, they are now in my computer, and will take a while. Haha.


^^I think this one came out decent.


^^I fixed the jaw and butchered the eye. X.x Gotta love the fixability of photoshop.


^^ I also butchered this one. I have no idea what I was doing with the face, I should have left it alone. Yes I will add better grass in there too.

This is when it was still fresh. It's healed now. It looks more like a pencil sketch than a portrait.


Lookin good Lie! Wish I could do line art. : (

I wonder how can you not do lineart? Unless if you do detail from the start, I don't see why not. Lol Once you sketch do the outline in pen, with very minimal lines for emphasize some definitions and then once dry erase all pencil markings. Then your done.

I'm not a fan of the style of tattoo, but it looks good.

I start out with an outline and do detail from nose to toes. But I don't have a scanner and my computer literally hates me. I can do line art on paper but not using this computer. What do you mean by style of tattoo? Lol
