Realism in tattooing, as well as in any other form of art is defined as the representation of subjects exactly as they are supposed to exist. Being the accurate, detailed, unembellished depiction of nature or contemporary life, realism rejects imaginative idealization in favour of outward appearances close observation. That’s why, to be called ‘realistic’, the tattoo must represent something that is thought to exist and can only be done through, detailed copying an object photo directly to skin.
It’s absolutely necessary to provide a photo of real object to get ‘Realistic’ tattoo and the photo requirements are:
2. Size of photos provided as a paper prints must be not smaller than size of a planned tattoo.
3. ALL important objects on the photos must not be cropped or covered by accessory objects. They must be shown in the exact position it will be tattooed. Please note: perspective of the image or any anatomical details cannot be changed!
Before scheduling your consultation, please make sure that you have collected photos of real objects which can be used as your tattoo reference and able to email them for inspection as well as provide them(in digital) for detailed discussion during your consultation appointment.
IMPORTANT note: Photos of someone else’s tattoos can be only used as an examples and can NOT be copied to your skin or used to create your tattoo design done in ‘Realistic’ style!
