Building layers and under painting, blending colors in the skin, shading and color theory, using painterly line work, creating effective transparencies, working effectively with lighting, creating textures, atmospheric perspective, utilizing negative space, special effects, etc… All of these ideas and more are aspects of painting which often get left out of traditional tattooing.

But, if you’re starting with a solid traditional foundation, and you have a willingness to think outside of that box, you can expand your tattoo work tremendously! All while still creating pieces for your clients that will hold up well over the course of time.

These techniques are especially essential, when doing cover-up work, or the limits of traditional tattooing, often fail.
