Rose Cover Up

Had fun on this one

This tattoo wasn't photoshopped or enhanced in any way, what you see here is exactly how I got it.

Its almost like you make it a black and grey tattoo, then put the color over it. I dig it very clean.

that's pretty much what I do. I do all the gray tons under the color and that does alot of thew blending tricks for me. I was alway taught to do it that way because my teacher told me 'if they abuse the hell out of the tattoo and all the color fades on the 30 years down the road, atleast you still gave them a nice blk and gry tattoo.'

Right on. Thats good advice. Do you do the whip shading technique to get the fade? Sorry for all the questions.

I do for the color to blend them together. I'll whip out the red for instance if i'm moving on to orange because if I pack solid orange over the whipped out red it fades smoother from one to the other
