Airbrush Artist to Tattoo Artist….We’ll See

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My name is Rob, from just north of Toronto Canada.

I have been custom painting for about 25 years, thought I’d try my hand at tattooing. Although different tools and medium, the principals of colour, shading, lighting, perspective, etc, remain the same for both. I would like to get some feedback on whether you experienced/professionals think what I do now (AKA my style) would translate well to this new world.

I bought a cheap ass starter kit to get to know the parts and feel of the machine(s), no intention of touching skin until I’ve been through a proper apprenticeship, just testing the waters.

I did read the rules and am in no way self-promoting my painting, but the gallery on my site tells the best story of my skills, http://underworldcustompaint.com/ucp_003.htm hope this is OK with the mods

Would love to hear some honest feedback.

Thanks V.

I draw usually when I'm designing something, I don't sit and doodle, too much other stuff to do, and portraits are not my strong suit. That said, I can draw yes.

Cheers, Rob
