How to Design a Tattoo Stencil for an Ongoing Tattoo

An oldie but goodie!

Check out Tattoo Adam designing a stencil for a customer in this video shot in our Waikiki tattoo shop 434 Tattoo.

He starts with tracing the arm to design the stencil to fit in the space that the tattoo is going to go.  Once the space is determined, he will begin drawing the stencil out.

In this case, the customer provided imagery to Tattoo Adam.  While that is not necessary, it is helpful when someone has something more specific in mind to the tattoo artist.

Our Tattoo studio in Waikiki has a library of books covering all styles of tattooing, as well as tattoo flash, and our own archive of past works.  Please feel free to swing by and ask for a free consultation.  Our goal is to give you the best tattoo and experience in a Hawaii tattoo shop ever so we’re here to help!
