"Level up your realistic portrait skills"

In this Realistic tattoo masterclass, you’ll be able to enjoy the experience of a full and detailed tattoo process. I will create a woman portrait tattoo, full of details and tips which, after you’ve learned them, you’ll be able to incorporate to your work routine and level up your realistic tattoo technique.

The best always comes last: Folds, grooves, locks of hair, white highlights…

But before we arrive to this step, you must have a clear view of the whole: The shape and size of the portrait, its volume, the direction that the shadows follow, the set aside skin where the white highlights will be placed… There is no use in focusing on the details if you don’t control the general aspects.

It’s easy to lose oneself in the details when you’re tattooing such elaborated pieces. With this course, you’ll learn important practical abilities, such as: The steps to follow to tattoo any realistic element; how to create gradients starting by dark tones and finishing with light ones and vice versa; how to shade without leaving needle marks and how to tattoo Realistic lips with a glossy effect.

This advanced realistic tattoo course features Full-HD videos throughout 13 classes where I’ll teach you all the advanced tips to tattoo Realism that I know. Aside from the full tattoo process, this tutorial includes a lesson in which I’ll also show you the touch up session, and I’ll explain when and how it’s best to do it.

Throughout these lessons, you’ll learn:

Despite what you may think, all realistic images are tattooed following the same steps. Should we start by working on the darkest or the lightest areas? Should details be left for last?

There’s always a right way to do it – and in my Mastercourse you'll learn what it is. I'll teach you my methodology, which basically consists in knowing what the appropriate steps to follow are, which type of needle or machine you should use for each tattoo, or why and how you should touch up realistic tattoos. I'll also tell you about composition, photo editing before starting the tattoo process, the workspace, and more. In order to do things correctly you must know what the correct way is.

Did you know that you can identify lines, shadows, and fills in an image through Photoshop?
Is the machine you use the one that works best for you?
