Tecnica de Sombreado: Puntillismo

Shading Technique: Pointillism




Have you ever wondered how to create amazing shadows that stand out on your tattoos? Pointillism is the answer! Instead of conventional techniques, we are going to dive into the world of small dots. Hold on because this is going to be exciting.

So how do we do it? We start by choosing a 3 RL needle, an instrument that will allow us to create those tiny little dots that make pointillism so enchanting. Although it sounds crazy, it is really interesting!

Remember to wet the paper well to keep the flow smooth and the lines precise. Here the needle plays an important role; make sure it's a bit further out to see the results in action. This technique is like no other, I'm telling you.

While we're at it, let me tell you that pointillism is great for floral work and even portraits. Who would have guessed, right? The variety of results you can get is amazing.

And don't worry if your hand is moving fast or slow. That also affects the results! You can control the distance between the dots simply by adjusting the speed. Tattoo magic!

And here's the trick: circles, lines, irregular shapes, anything goes! There is no fixed formula, just your creativity. Synthetic leather is ideal for practicing and mastering this unique technique. But wait, this isn't just about ink! It is about your style, about marking your personal stamp on each work.

So if you are looking to add an artistic touch to your tattoos and explore new horizons, pointillism is your way. There are no limits here, only points and lines that become true works of art. Be original, be creative, and leave your mark on the skin!
