Whether you live in Green Bay, or nearby in Milwaukee or Chicago we have you covered. It’s worth the short drive to get the best portrait tattoo artist around.
It takes a special kind of tattoo artist to do portrait tattoos justice. Portrait tattoos aim to convey a person’s likeness onto another person’s skin. Some of these are meant to show admiration, love and loss or a new beginning. When done right, the images evoke a sense of emotion and are considered to be among the most desirable of all tattooed images. If rushed or done by a lesser-experienced artist, they become an embarrassment, something to hide or to get rid of instead of being proudly shown. Yet, even with the distinct complexities known to this tattoo-style, portrait tattoos should not be feared. They look great on your skin, standout and fade less compared to colored tattoos. If you know the right tattoo artist to do it and have enough information about how these tattoos should look, you can expect a tattoo that is nothing less but a grand work of skin art.
Most portrait tattoos consist primarily of the head, shoulders and sometimes the bust, however, more of the body may be added provided the head is not too small. Portrait tattoos are normally done in black & grey, with some minor highlights of white. This is done because by experience it brings about the smoothest and most realistic results. The addition of color will stylize the portrait a bit and will give it a less than natural look and is therefore not recommended unless you prefer the outcome to look more graphic or cartoony in nature.
