For a tattoo artist, doing a good tracing is an essential skill that can make the difference between a good tattoo and a great tattoo. While the process may seem simple, there are a few tricks that can help ensure that the end result is clean and accurate. If you're interested in improving your stencil skills on the iPad, Habbility's "Realistic Black and White Portrait Tattoo" course can help.
The first thing you should do is take the image you want to tattoo and place a layer on top of it. Then choose a brush that's right for the job, one that's in-between thickness to prevent the lines from bunching up or getting stuck on the copier. There are many different brushes to choose from, but the instructor suggests one in particular.
Once you've chosen the right brush, it's time to adjust the line to fit the copier. It is important not to make the line too thick or thin. You also need to make sure that the line is dark enough for the thermal copier to capture it properly.
In general, the stencil process on the iPad is pretty straightforward. However, if you want to make sure your stencil is perfect, it's important to follow these tips. If you want to know more about the realistic black and white portrait tattoo process, make sure to check out Habbility's full course.
