Whats up dude? I haven't seen any tattoo art in this forum at all, but that doesn't mean its not welcome. I think you're not getting much feed back because tattoo art is almost a completely different realm from CG art.


I design tattoos for lots of people and I use my computer for almost all of it, though I definately have never actually tattooed anyone. Have you noticed the cultural gap between tattoo artists and other types of artists? I sure have. I know there are some reallly talented people out there who do tattoos for a living yet they aren't "accepted" into the traditional artists demographic. I've always been curious as to why that is. (Biker boots vs Birkenstocks?) Heheh just kiddin'.

Anyway, it seems that you style has some graffiti influence that seems to be really popular with tattooing. My buddy, in his youth, was a damn good graffiti artist, now he does tattoos as a side job. I'd like to hear you talk about your subject matter and style as an artists aswell as a tattooer. Post more stuff if you've got it. I want to get into this!:beer:
Take care for now man.

great work! I like the style you have.
One of my brothers has several tattoos, and until I saw the work on him, I had no idea the amount of detail and shading/coloration that could be done in this medium.
Do you sketch on paper when you get ideas for tattoos, or on a computer?
Thanks for sharing- don

i personally dont like big tattoos , i dig the small symbolic ones , but the detail you put there is amazing.

@Don and all who are interrested:

I do no sketches befor I tattoo, I make it freehand...that means:
First I draw on the skin... Then I start to tattoo.

I will load up a series of pics soon, wich demonstrate the technique.

Thanks for posting
