A realism tattoo is a true commitment to great body artwork. And it should be, because the artist is literally engraving the world as you see it onto your skin.
Photo-realistic tattoos (the ones you could confuse for an actual photo of something real) are an investment in time and money. But don’t let that scare you off.
The realism tattoo style is an absolute classic, and perfect for capturing something or someone very specific. Realistic tattoos portray anything from people and animals, to nature, scenery and objects. They come in all sizes, black and grey, full colour, or a mixture of the two which has incredible visual impact when done well. As time goes by, this style is more and more refined, with experts in realism easily identifiable.
Our artists that specialize in realism have a critical eye for detail, taking as much time as necessary to accomplish the desired effect of etching a photograph on your skin. Through the use of fine lines, contrast, shading, and 3D effects, as well as different sized needles and a range of tones, your artist will bring your tattoo to life.
