Choosing a tattoo design, size and location on the body; As skin heals and ages it is important to remember that the tattoo will mature with the skin; Lines will soften and the blacks will fade to dark grey. This will happen to all skin types and can not be prevented with any aftercare. How the tattoo will look after healing is a combination of the tattoo, skin type and aftercare. During the tattoo process it is important for the client to stay relaxed and still to supply the tattoo artist the best possible surface to work on. Any rapid movements might affect the artists ability to produce quality work. When choosing the design, giving the tattoo artist as much free room to plan out the design will ALWAYS result in a design that is going to be made by the artists best knowledge to suit the area of the body as well as making the design correspond best to the artists sense of aesthetics.
It is important to choose an artist who's style you vibe with. Reference images and ideas are always welcome.
With choosing a size for a tattoo design, larger is often better. With larger designs the tattoo artist is able to add more details without compromising the longevity of the design. This means that as the tattoo and skin ages and the lines in the tattoo naturally blur, the design will not become too unclear to "read". Larger design means that as the skin heals, there is more space for the natural "blurring" and the design will look better for longer time. There are always exception to this rule, but in general this applies to majority of tattoos.
CUSTOM VS FLASH
CUSTOM pieces are work that I draw on the basis of clients specific requests. Prior to booking you are welcome to send reference images of my existing work or inspirational photographs and designs.
I do not send fully finished designs prior to appointment date, but am open to sending a rough sketch at an additional cost.
CUSTOM NOTES: For custom designs there is time built in for some back and forth for minor adjustments on the day of the tattoo. If any major redrawing is required the estimated tattooing time will be expanded to accommodate the required drawing time.
FLASH designs give artistic freedom to me based on VERY general likes/dislikes. There are no mock ups or sketches exchanged between clients and me prior to tattoo day.
