Morrisey Portrait Tattoo by Louis Santos

My customer was a big fan of The Smiths and Morrisey. So when he asked me for a portrait I was happy to work with him. I love doing portraits, it’s one of my favourite styles to tattoo. As portraits style is linked to realism, I enjoy thinking about light, how it falls in to the face. As I draw a lot of faces, it really helps me to understand where the shadow falls in the face. When I approach a portrait I try not to think harder and feel harder instead. Not thinking about me, but thinking about the character. This way I can dig deeper and push myself to get more emotionally connected to the content. Thank you
