A masterpiece to make your own.
Tattoos are a great way to commemorate something special to you: a person, a pet, a place. And there’s arguably no better way to do so than with the Realism style.
Realism tattoos are, well, realistic. Sometimes insanely so. They’re true works of art made to look as natural and proportional as possible. Think portraits and scenes so lifelike, they can even look photographic.
As far as sizing goes, the bigger, the better. Large-scale chest plates, back pieces and whole limbs often work best as a canvas for Realism tattoos. If they’re sized too small, the details can look muddy.
Regardless of whether they’re created in black and gray or color, this style relies on lots of shading and detail to capture light and shadows in a way that really brings it to life. It’s probably no surprise to hear that Realism tattoos require a little more time in the chair, potentially even a few visits if they’re super intricate. But the wait is well worthwhile.
When done right, the results are awe-inspiring. That’s one of the reasons Realism tattoos are a great way to memorialize someone or something you love, lost or admire.
It takes a really talented tattoo artist to pull off Realism tattoos. And we’ve got a shop full of them. They’re not only exceptional artists, but experts at placement and sizing. We’ll help you find the best place to lay your tribute and give you recommendations as if we were getting the tattoo inked on ourselves. You’ll leave with a piece you’ll be proud to show off, one that’s worthy enough to hang on the walls of an art gallery—better yet, on you.
