The true secrets of realism

Immerse yourself into the ins and outs of realism tattooing, and supercharge your skills.

When people hear the term realism in the context of tattooing, they might be confused. After all, hyper-realistic portraits on human skin are next to impossible, right?

Wrong. realism is not only possible but also less complicated than you might think. With patience and a creative mind, any talented artist can add this unique style to their repertoire.

The foundations of realism tattooing lie in gradient control. Edit and artists like her take advantage of fine needling techniques to achieve an insane level of detail classical and even modern tattooing can’t offer. The result is a photographic level of details that tattoos were never able to capture.

The skill in realism is in both the way in which an artist renders their recreation and in representing the original image with indistinguishable likeness. There are several ways to go about achieving the perfect tattoo, all of which Edit will cover in her "practice with me" lessons for her subscribers.

She has learned from an experience like the rest of us and has a lot to say about the mistakes you should avoid and how to stay on top of your game.
