There are so many ways a tattoo can be done. Your mind and creativity are the limit… or not! The only thing holding most artists back is habit, I believe. An artist gets in the habit of always using black lines, or always tattooing a certain style, or what-have-you.
Over the past year I have been trying to branch out and try new things. Colored lines, instead of black ones, are quickly becoming one of my favorite techniques. A few weeks ago I got a request from a client for a tattoo with no lines. Not only did this client want a “line-less” tattoo, but she wanted the tattoo to look like the subject matter was sort of “painted” on her.
I happily took her request because she wanted flowers. Echinacea flowers, to be exact! I was super excited! After a bit of research I drew her up a sketch and she loved it, so we moved onto the tattooing. Here is what I created for her.
