From Pencil to Ink

In our last blog, we discussed the stencil in the tattoo process.  Here’s an example of what a stencil looks like that is a part of larger piece that is in development:

The stencil is a just a guide because the custom tattoo artist has a vision as to what the finished product will look like:

While there are obvious similarities between the two, the tattooist envisions and places where the shading will be, how to do the outline. In this case, Tattoo Adam went with an extra thick outline on the outside so that the frame would really pop out.   Also it’s hard to tell what the thing next to the diamond is in the stencil, whereas with the shading (and its placement to the other tattoos in the larger piece), one can see that it is a claw.

Tattooing, like any system in life, has many intricate parts, that when it comes together as one, creates a masterpiece. Stop by our Waikiki Tattoo Parlor today, tell us you found us online, and get a free consultation and online discount.
