This isn't a healed picture? How do you get your grays to come out so quickly on a fresh tattoo? Usually soft shading is especially pink/umber toned from the skin irritation...Either way though, very very nice portrait, good work! :)

Oh, I def believe it looked spectacular all healed up. I kinda assumed that was the trick, I was just wondering :) Do you do a lot of portraiture in your work, i.e. would you consider yourself mainly a portrait artist? What/how do you charge for your ink BTW, and how long have you been tattooing? Keep up the super awesome work!

no this was probably my 2nd ever portrait, and have only done 1 since. Ive been tattooing around 4 or 5 years, but only regularly for 2. I charge for my ink different ways...sometimes with a set price for a piece, or sometimes per hour (50-60 per hour) with free touch ups. that sounds a little wrong.
thank you very much!

That's insane. The tonal depth you get in your portraits always comepletely blows me away. I really like how you made it so soft in just the right places too.
