What You Need to Know About a Realism Tattoo

A realism tattoo uses a specific technique that results in artwork that closely resembles a photograph. Designed to be an accurate representation of real-life images, a realism tattoo is also precise and finely detailed. Though many people choose to have a person, object or animal as the subject of their realism tattoo, a variety of other objects can also be used as well. This is one of the most fascinating and exciting styles of tattoo. Its correct execution requires patience, skill and attention to detail on the part of the artist.


Before you contract with a London tattoo studio to have a realism tattoo completed, make sure to do your research first. You'll want to first check to be sure that the establishment has an artist who is skilled at these tattoos. Next, ask to see samples of the artist's work. Santo Cuervo Custom Tattoos has an extensive library of realism tattoo samples.
