Realistic Tattoos: Color Portraits

14 Sep 2011 Posted by: Comments: 0 In: Life Tags:

There are many opinions in the tattoo community about this type of work, I don’t know what to call it but I have fun doing them. I haven’t had the opportunity to do very many of them but I feel the ones that I did were pretty successful. I really enjoy both the challenge of breaking the work down so it will translate to the tattoo process but also watching it come together as I do the work. Luckily I’ve had some clients cool enough to let me do my own thing. I am especially interested in studying exactly what makes things look realistic and natural.
I am very excited to be back in Missoula where I get to do much more color work as I mostly get asked for black and grey when I am in LA. If you are interested in getting a piece please contact me through my Consultation Form and we will go back an forth until it is figured out. I love doing portraits but I dont want to be pigeonholed as a portrait artist so I am always looking for new ways to challenge myself and update my portfolio. I really want to get in to Wildlife and Animal Tattoos and study some textures from nature as well.
At the end of the day, if you want to get attention from a tattoo, this is the way to go. It is an investment in time and pain, even if you wish to break them down they need to be at least three to four hours per session. Some of these pieces were up to nine hours in a single day. If you think you can take it be sure to hit me up about my day rates to save a little bit on my hourly rate and I promise to send you home with an experience you won’t soon forget.
