With this technique, Whipshading is easier than it seems

Put yourself in a situation:

«A client walks through the studio door, goes to the receptionist and asks for a blackwork specialist.

It's you!

When you get to work on your anime tattoo design, you realize that you are asking something complex and that it doesn't always turn out well: flat shading.

Many would have doubted it.

Working with this type of shadows is complicated, you need a lot of detail and not everyone explains how to do it well.

But, luckily, you do have that knowledge: it is what you learned in the seminar on Whipshading by El Uf.

Thanks to this seminar in which you learned through an anime tattoo, you can now use drag pointillism without fear of producing smudges.

You know the technique of El Uf himself, which has allowed you to develop quick and impressive results in your tattoos.

And that has given you important reviews, which is why this client has come to the studio.

This is just a situation that may occur one day.

However, if you want it to be real, if you want to show security and confidence to your clients when they ask you for a job like this, this is your seminar.

Become a master of Whipshading with this anime tattoo seminar!

El Uf
Blackwork specialist tattoo artist

In the tattoo world they know me as El Uf, and I have been tattooing for more than 20 years.

This has given me the opportunity to go through very varied studies and attend different conventions.

I started tattooing when it was something rather unknown and little accepted. I started in Barcelona, ​​worked in Gerona and returned to Barcelona. There, I had my own studio with a friend for five years.

We earned our place and a recognized site in blackwork worldwide. When that stage ended, I decided to focus only on my art.

Now, I tattoo in various studios in Barcelona, ​​Zurich and as a guest in different places.

Over the years I have absorbed many styles and techniques.

But now I direct my passion mainly to blackwork, influenced by anime, horror and Japanese culture.

In that aspect, I can work whipshading with a technique that I have uniquely developed.

Do you want to know it and apply it to your work?
