Beautiful Tattoos are not only amazing to look at but a true testimony to the skill of the artist and the discomfort tolerance of the sitter. Considering that a larger tattoo can take up to 58 hours if not more to complete tattoos like the one's I am showing you today are not for the faint of heart and truly require dedication and skill.
This video shows how tattoo artist Dmitriy Samohin from Odesa, Ukraine created the above detailed tattoo of a tribal girl using a tattoo machine. Tattoo inks are forced with various size tattoo needles below the skin to create three dimensional images with bold colors and shading.
Tattoo inks are extremely fine pigment powders which are diluted in water and either alcohol, propylene glycol or glycerin. The pigments are made from various chemicals, including carbon for black and various metals which can be purchased pre-mixed.
Considering that 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo, you can see how popular tattoos have become. $1.65 billion is spend in the U.S on tattoos according to Statistic Brain!
As an artist I can attest that your tools make all the difference in the world. Achieving great results is a good mix of the artist's vision, skills and supplies used
