Wiz Khalifa digital Portrait by Louis Santos

We are always listening to hip hop in the studio, it’s a nice sort of music to work to. A lot of people like hip hop too, so it’s easier to please most customers. We also like to listen to rock music, however we only try to play it, if the client is in to it. Trying to make your customer comfortable while they get tattooed, is one of our aims in our studio in Leeds City Centre.

Realistic colour portrait tattoo of Thanos by Louis Santos in Leeds

Colour realism portrait is a treat for me to do, as I love doing portraits. realism is a style that has the importance of an image to look believable, and understanding light. 

A good way to understand light in my opinion is to draw realism. I thought I knew about realism and light, until I had a seminar with the master of black and grey tattoo, Carlos Torres. He really opened my eyes about how to understand shadow and value, studying realistic images. Thank you.
