How to do Watercolor Tattoos: Painterly Techniques for Tattoo Artists by Shelly Dax

Get your SPLASH on!

For tattoo artists looking to add the watercolor style to their portfolio this colorful little book is for you!

Watercolor tattoos are an ever-increasing popular request for tattooers the world over. For the artist it is a wonderfully free, bold and imaginative expression that lends itself to whimsy and playfulness. Clients may think this is an easy style—“it’s just a bunch of splashes”—but in reality it is much more difficult to replicate on skin what watercolor paint does naturally on paper.

Longtime tattooer and author of The Tattoo Textbook, Shelly Dax shares her joyful journey into the realm of watery (or “aquarelle”) tattoos. From shaky beginnings through technique, contrast and color harmony, Shelly shares with you how to successfully execute this painterly method.
