Tips For Coloring Tattoos
What colors should I use for different types of tattoo coloring pages?
Traditional tattoos often use bold primary colors such as black, red, yellow, and green. However, the color choices largely depend on the specific tattoo design. For example, Japanese style tattoos utilize a wide array of colors, while tribal designs mainly use black. For colorful floral designs, you could use vibrant and varied hues. Your choice should also reflect the mood or meaning of the tattoo.
What techniques can I use to make my tattoo coloring pages more realistic?
Start by shading the designs lightly with your chosen colors, gradually building up the shades and layers. This will produce a more life-like, three dimensional effect. For skin tone, use blush hues, and for tattoos that look like they’re under the skin, use a translucent blue-grey. Remember, tattoos are not usually stark black. They’re often a deep blue-black, due to skin over the ink.
Are there any distinguishing characteristics of tattoo art that I should consider while coloring?
Yes, tattoos are versatile art forms that encompass many styles, ranging from Traditional, Neo-Traditional, Japanese, Tribal, to Realistic among others. Traditional tattoos feature bold lines and saturated colors, while Neo-Traditional tattoos depict modern imagery with a mix of bold and thin lines. Japanese tattoos are rich and intricate with a specific set of designs, and Tribal tattoos are abstract and symbolic, usually done in black. Understanding these styles can guide you in your coloring.
What are some fun facts about tattoos that I could incorporate into my coloring pages?
Tattoos have been around for thousands of years, with the oldest known tattooed human skin dating back to between 3370 and 3100 BC. In the past, tattoos had sacred and significant cultural implications. Today, they are often used as a form of self-expression. You could incorporate elements of the history and evolution of tattoo art in your coloring, using different styles and symbols that were prevalent in various cultures and eras.
