The Artist Process for Custom Tattoo Designs

Submitted by Naomi V on Tue, 2014-03-25 15:07
How does the artist process work for creating custom tattoo designs? Research, concept sketching, and listening to the customer are all part of it, but what does the process actually look like? We asked designer Benjamin Wright to let us in on how he works. He's a true talent and one of our busiest tattoo designers. What he sent are a number of sketches in various stages from rough concept to final color.

Date & Time: 

I have an old (20 years old) tattoo on my upper arm that I started to have removed via laser (7 treatments). It is, or was, a tribal arm band and I would like to have it covered up with a realistic dragon fly (lots of color - vibrant periwinkle blues). I have a vacation day Thursday April 3rd so that seem like a good day for a consult. Angie was recommended so I would really like to meet with her.

Thank you!
