Group Info

Members:
Professional Tattoo Artists and Apprentices.

Purpose:
A DA group for Professional Tattoo Artists to share art for critiques, info on resources (sketchbooks, reviews, art supplies, etc), events, etc.

Rules:
Being that it's a group for professionals, not a lot of need for them.
Posting pics in the proper category is cool and just a bit of mutual respect should do.

Note: Because I've been asked a few times to clarify what I mean by "professional" here a) work in a studio, shop, professional setting (i.e. your kitchen/bathroom sink isn't your studio sink, you use dental bibs instead of tea towels, p/leather furniture not fabric couches, your floor, not carpetted...and your business card, it probably has a street address on it) b) you do this for a living/main source of income and not as a hobby or 2nd, 3rd source of income, c) how long you've been tattooing, quality...not a consideration here (leave that one for clients) .
If you're a tattoo artist working in a professional environment, please join, add your work and contribute as you like.
If not, you're welcome to add the group to watch and check out the work in the galleries.

Cheers,

LJ

Looking for an artist to design two realism tattoos, must have experience with fire and hands. Will get the tattoos within a few months after finished product, and willing to pay commission for someone to draw the final designs that I can take to a tattooist.

Practice drawing, first of all basics, like shading, rendering, perspective, composition, etc.
Maybe take some drawing classes -it helps a lot :-)
Also study colour technique.
Build up an awesome portfolio (maybe make multiple ones you could leave with the shops you apply for), then find out which place you want to learn from, and just go for it with all the tenacity you can muster :-)

Im trying to recreate a tattoo sleeve of John 5 & use it as a transfer. I found this site but the tattoos are hard to see well enough to create a copy sleeve & one shoulder is missing close up. www.marilynmansonimages.com/jo… but this is the closest I can find to seeing all his tattoos. I would also like to say I have never had a tattoo & I dont know much beyond the fact that they hurt. Any help in recreating John 5 sleeves would be appreciated. Thanks. :D
