Portrait tattooing involves tattooing a photograph of a person or an animal in a realistic style. This genre of tattooing takes years to master and extremely difficult to do.
Artists will take particular care in reproducing the photograph as a tattoo. The visual impact of a portrait tattoo is stunning if undertaken by an accomplished artist. Portrait tattoos can either be colour or black and grey.
There are many factors to consider when getting a portrait tattoo. These include quality of the original photo, size and scale of the tattoo, client’s skin tone and whether the photo is tattooable.
A great artist will consult with you on all these aspects and tailor your portrait to your specific requirements.
