Advanced Tattooing Techniques: A Guide to Realism

by Joshua Carlton

Called "a monumental work" by International Tattoo Magazine editor-in-chief Chris Pfouts, Advanced Tattooing Techniques: A Guide to Realism is the perfect tool to help take your realism techniques to the next level.

Joshua Carlton's best-selling how-to book, originally written to go along with his live realism tattoo techniques seminar, covers all of Carlton's methods for achieving realistic tattoo effects. A few of the things taught in this book are:

  • - How to build and use giant magnum needles
  • - How to make stencils that let you map out the process and make your work look truly photographic
  • - How to tune and adjust your machines to get the exact desired effect, including the "wet look"
  • - Exact needle set-up to hand motion as Carlton completes realistic, step-by-step, portraiture

Carlton includes ample color and b&w images throughout to help you fully understand, through pictures, the techniques explained and taught within the book. Also included are five full-page examples of Joshua Carlton's realistic flash.

Measures 8 1/2" X 11", 124 pages (including "ghost" pages meant for seminar notes).
