How I work by Louis Santos

Tattoo Technique

In this post I would like to display an example of how I work. I build my tattoos by layers. That allows me to give more to the tattoo without too much skin damage, and better healing. Patience and having faith in your process is a really important topic when getting tattooed. As you can see the first layer healed doesn’t look great, then after second layer is added the tattoo transforms. Sometimes the tattoo mite take 3 layers or more depending on size and detail. Thats why I drop my prices, so the client can come back and add more layers. A lot of tattoos are delivered quiet fast, and thats is due to one layer appliance, witch it results with a 2d looking tattoo, flat sighted. In my opinion it doesn’t please my eyes as much. Not everyone will agree, but that’s how I see it. I respect everyone’s taste.

Thank you

Some areas of the tattoo are still healing so slightly scabby in some parts. We will be adding more when he returns to the UK. Keeping it all black & grey mainly themed around his family.
