A realism tattoo, as the name suggests, is a tattoo meant to look as real as possible. Portraits and animals are particularly popular in this style, but you really can’t think of anything or is possible within this style. Think cars, flowers, clocks, skulls or a host of other examples. Realism tattoos are also very popular to be done as sleeves.
We notice that we are getting more and more questions surrounding realistic or realism tattoos, which is why we have taken the trouble to answer the most frequently asked questions in one article. Starting with the most frequently asked question:
So if I bring a photo, you guys can work this out on my skin?
Yes! Indeed, we can. It is important, however, that it be a clear photo, of the highest possible quality. A realism tattoo involves the use of shadows in particular rather than hard line work, so it is important that the photo is suitable for realization as a tattoo. This prevents you from ending up with a bunch of blurred shadows so that it looks like a black spot. But if you bring a good quality photo, we can be fine with it in most cases.
On what body parts can I get a realism tattoo?
As mentioned earlier, realism tattoos are very popular to incorporate into a sleeve. Lots of shading allows several diverse designs to blend together in a beautiful way. So you can incorporate multiple topics into your sleeve. Of course, not everyone wants to tattoo an entire arm or full leg right away. Of course, you can also go for a design on your chest, back, or just on your thigh or upper arm. In principle, a realism tattoo can be done anywhere; however, it is important that the area is large enough to clearly depict the tattoo. Small tattoos are usually not suitable for realism tattoos, with exceptions.
How much does a realism tattoo cost?
Unfortunately, as with almost any other tattoo, there is no one-size-fits-all answer here. The price of your tattoo will depend on several factors: the size of the tattoo, what part of the body it will be on, how much detail it contains, and so on. Tattoos are not cheap: for a full realistic sleeve, this can easily run into the thousands of euros. A lot of money, of course, but you are carrying with you a true work of art for the rest of your life. To give you a price indication, it’s best to stop by our shop. Together we will then look at the possibilities and afterwards we can give you an idea of the cost for your design. A schedule an intake is completely free!
