How to create a 3D work of art on something 2D like skin, that's what we introduce in this article - Realism Tattoo.Since 15th century Realism begins to rise and appears in people's sight, but it wasn’t until the invention of the camera that the realistic approach in the arts really took off.
One of the main methods of creating realism tattoos is the mapping of shadows, highlights and contrasts. For anyone who has gotten a realistic tattoo, or has watched stencil placement, you’ve probably noticed the contour lines that outline areas like a topographic map.There are varying ways in which a realist tattooist will work, but what is absolutely sure is that this particular style requires much planning beforehand, along with a lot of skill and technical training.
It's an honor that there are also some realist artists in our EMALLA Pro Team. Let's appreciate 5 pieces of awesome artworks of them.
