There isn’t many places for tattoos to go. The only thing that can really improve with them is the ink the tattoo artists use, the gear that they tattoo with and the actual art itself. Art is by far the most critical part of tattooing. You’re placing this on your body to stay for the rest of your life. Of course you want it to look amazing and blow everyone’s minds who see it. What’s the point of getting a tattoo if it’s just bland, unless that’s what you were going for. So with tattoo artist always trying to improve, or at least they should be, it’s hard to think of ways to better yourself.
Things to differentiate or separate oneself from the rest of the pack. Well there may be a rising trend and hopefully it will stay in the tattoo community. Artist are now practicing 3D tattoos. These tattoos are absolutely incredible. The next question you’re probably asking yourself is what in the world is a 3D tattoo.
It’s a tattoo that is drawn and designed in such a way that it looks like it’s coming off of your body. Not all tattoo artist have the ability to be able to make these. It takes an enormous amount of time, creativity and skill. Their able to achieve this look with certain lighting and shading tricks along with shadows coming off of the tattoo.
3D tattoos can’t just be black and skin. They have to contain color and a good amount at that. The color helps add dimension to the tattoo and without dimension it would end up looking like any ole plain jane tattoo. The careful placement of both the color and the shadow give each tattoo that added third dimension and look like it’s popping off of someones skin.
Being a 3D artist is quite the gift. You can probably end up making a substantial amount of money off of these designs as well. 3D tattoos can be made out of almost any design that you can come up with. Some might be harder than others but a good artist will know how to take that design and make it into something great.
The most difficult things in life often turn out to the be the greatest. It just seems most of us don’t want to put in the time or effort to get to that point in life. Nothing comes easy and that includes tattoos. They need to take time. The artist will have multiple screw ups on paper. He’ll look at it many times and go why did I even take on this project. Hair pulling, pencils breaking, phone calls to you saying that he or she doesn’t know if they can do it. Once the finish tattooing that ink onto your skin and the final design comes to life that both of you have come up with, it will be worth it.
