The Best 3D Tattoo Styles | HORIKYO TATTOO

3D tattoos are becoming very popular, when in reality they have existed for quite a long time. At the simplest form, 3D tattoo designs are extremely detailed tattoos that stand out to the eyes. When choosing a 3D tattoo design, you should keep a few things in mind:

*There are two ways 3D tattoo designs are given that 3D effect*

Sometimes, 3D tattoos get mixed in with detailed tattoos that appear 3D. Either way, they both look awesome. The simplest, and easiest way, to get a 3D tattoo design is through shading. The tattoo artist will add a shadow effect to the tattoo design, so that it appears to be 3D. An example would be of a spider tattoo where the tattoo artist adds shadow beneath the legs so that it appears like the spider is really walking across the skin. The shading can be done very intricately, creating detailed 3D tattoo designs.

The second way, and what actually creates a 3D tattoo, is a bit more complicated. The tattoo artist will inject a sugary substance beneath the skin. This will raise the skin a few millimeters, and make the 3D tattoo design pop out. A few millimeters might not seem like much, but that is all it takes to create eye-popping 3D tattoo designs.

*How to choose a 3D tattoo design*

Nearly any design can be made 3D. Also, the injection can be done on any part of the body, so there are no limits to where a 3D tattoo design can be placed. Some of the most common 3D tattoo designs are of the skin ripped apart with something beneath it. Also, animals, like the spider mentioned, seemingly moving across the body. However, any tattoo design can be chosen for a 3D tattoo design.

Think of anything you want in a tattoo, and then think about how it could be shaded to make it appear 3D. Does the idea of an alien lunging out from beneath your skin seem like an awesome idea to you? Then go with it. The great thing about choosing 3D tattoo designs is that extreme details only make the tattoo better. However, you can also go simple. If you just want a butterfly sitting on your shoulder, it can be done with simple shading or even an injection.

*The most important thing about choosing a 3D tattoo design*

Picking a tattoo design to make 3D is the easy part. The hardest thing is finding the best tattoo artist to get it done right. Very few tattoo shops specialize in actual 3D tattoo designs with the injections that raise the skin. Find one, and you're set.

If there isn't one of those 3D specialists in your area, or you can't afford one, then your next choice is finding an artist with excellent shading skills. Don't just walk into a tattoo shop and expect the design you want will automatically be done in 3D. Go tattoo artist shopping. Show them the design you want, and explain that you want it to look 3D. An excellent tattoo artist will work with you, showing you what shading techniques he would use and where he would use them on the tattoo design. The artist should be able to draw up a 3D design that is eye-popping and exactly what you want.

Choosing 3D tattoo designs is easy. The hard part is placed on the tattoo artist. As long as the artist has the skills and, of course, the drive, to create amazing tattoo work, then you will be happy with the final result of your 3D tattoo design.
