Mario Barth giving some Tips on Tattooing – Intenze Tattoo Ink – Painful Pleasures.com
The design that Mario is working on is a bald eagle with shield. He offers some tips to tattooists that can help you be better at your chosen art-form.
Doing line work with a grey pigment rather than a black that is harder to blend in when doing shading.
Stretching the skin when tattooing is very important to keep the needle depth consistent, rather than the needle bouncing off the top of the skin or at different depths.
Go easy on the skin so you can build up colours if necessary.
and don’t forget the small details in the feathers to make it look more 3-D.
