Tattoo Design Photoshop Tutorial

Design Your Own Custom Sleeve In Just a Few Minutes.

Personally i do not have any tattoos but i have friends who are crazy for them, they seem to have an insatiable need for the needle. Some people literally walk into a tattoo parlor, choose a design right off the wall and walk out sporting a new lifelong commitment . As a lover of art i feel art should be respected, everybody should experiment a little and not make snap decisions especially with tattoos. I decided to add one of my own tracks as the outro music from a few years back when i used to make music too, light heart and all that.

Design A Tattoo In Photoshop Tutorial

It would be too easy to take draw a couple of shapes with the Pen Tool, superimpose them onto our subject then tick it off as good work when it comes to designing a sleeve. For the idea to work the whole image needs to be intertwined from wrist to shoulder, i found that "biblical scenes" or "mythical battles" work really well. Also blending patterns together with a light cloudiness works really well on sleeve designs too.

Nonetheless this is art, the same as any form of creation. I could look at a design and think nothing of it, a different perspective comes along and transforms it into a masterpiece. I have used this technique for friends and created a few designs for them, a few people online in Facebook groups too so i wanted to show you guys how easy it really is to "try before you buy" in Photoshop.
