the funniest part of this process has been that every time i finished a session and shared pics someone would say “omg congrats on being finished!”
there are even like 3 ppl that have told me that more than once! but nobody who’s a tattooer or in the scene has said it; i think that pinterest has convinced ppl that linework alone is a finished piece and i’m just here to advocate for shading and fill. tattoos are better with shading. plz believe me.
@bee even a simple black and grey looks amazing compared to just lineart. i think there are some cases where a lineart tattoo is fine enough but it depends mostly on art style. aside from tiny quarter sized flash pieces i can’t think of a reason to not get black and grey at the very least
@shade haha no totally. but again! i feel like the artist brain naturally views just lineart as “unfinished” but there’s been this minimalism/pinterest movement that’s pushed no shading or fill as stylish.
