Today, I am going to discuss about skin tones and Tattoo pigments to be used on your body. You’ve decided to get a new Tattoo, well Congratulations! But your dilemma is what colours will look best on you. I’ll help.
If you have fair skin tone I advise to stick with some bright colours like red, pink, orange, blue along with some black and grey to get some depth in your Tattoo.
For slightly wheatish skin I advise to stick with Red, Maroon, Green, Purple to cover the bigger part and some light colours (if necessary) orange, white to highlight your Tattoo.
Let’s talk about the practical skin tone we see and work upon almost everyday, Brown/Dark brown Asian skin tones and probably, that’s why you are reading this article. Lighter and Semi- lighter colours do not do any justice with this skin tone. You need to understand that Tattoo Artists settle a Tattoo on the second layer (Dermis) of your skin and first layer epidermis plays a vital role in displaying your Tattoo to the world. I’ll try to explain this with an example, Assume Epidermis as a very thin plastic sheet, while making Tattoo your artist will tear this apart with the help of a needle and a Tattoo Machine. Once your Tattoo completes, the first layer of your skin is gone hence, your Tattoo looks very bright and sharp. However, with time, it heals and epidermis with a very thin membrane comes back, now, the result of your Tattoo depends on the colour of your skin if that’s fair your Tattoo looks brighter, if dark, comparatively dull.
There is a conception that if your skin is dark any white/light coloured Tattoo will look good. Trust me, you’ll get the pain and end up with a sad result.
I recommend getting a black and grey or old school black Tattoo for wheatish or dark skin tones. These are some of the best choices to make you happy.
Hope I was of some help.
Thanks for reading,
You see people with Tattoos almost everyday and wonder if you can get one? But with this thought few other questions come up in your mind like pain, infection quality, brightness, artist’s competence, hygiene etc.
Today I will talk about your fears and hopefully help you to overcome these barriers which are stopping you to get a quality Tattoo. Firstly, I welcome all of you into the word of realism and 3d art where you can turn any design into reality. Gone are the days of getting all black Tattoos. You need to let your artist’s imagination work and come with plenty of time, after all you reserve a day to buy a mobile phone so why not let’s reserve a day for some Tattoos and celebrate it to the fullest. Remember, you are adding a new body part which will be known as TATTOO.
Tattoo is a popular art of self-expression and I strongly believe it shows your individuality and makes your presence much stronger among others, when you choose your Tattoo and your Artist carefully. The combination of these two can make or shake your Tattoo experience drastically.
I consider Tattoo making equivalent to a small surgery. It includes ink, needles, gloves, sweet pain and some droplets of blood. Certainly, it’s a good idea to get a Tattoo but more importantly you should realise where to get a Tattoo? You may go to the shops near your house and keep a close eye on the cleanliness they’ve maintained inside their shop. If your Artist is using disposable products, sterilized equipments, and you love his/her portfolio. I bet you are all set. Go and get a good one!!
Once healed, your Tattoo is not bad for your skin. Issues arise, in fact, when complications occur during the healing process. Infections are very uncommon if you remember above mentioned points however, I don’t deny it can never happen. After getting a nice vibrant Tattoo it is your responsibility to take care of your Tattoo. Please check out our aftercare link to understand it briefly.
