TATTOO COMMISSIONS

Tattoo commissions are provided at a lower rate due to them typically being a simpler designs with less details and ultimately, less time intensive. If you are looking for something more detailed, then please scoll down to my illustrative works.Tattoo commissions are available in line-work, black and white, or full colour. Prices displayed are base price and are subject to change depending on the area of the tattoo, size and complexity. Please send me an email or fill out the form for an accurate quote.IMPORTANT INFO: Tattoo commissions are for singular, solo tattoos. I am not a tattoo artists by profession and therefore I will not work with a tattoo you already have on your skin. I would heavily recommend that you speak to your tattoo artist who is far more experienced than I am.ALSO PLEASE BE SURE WHERE YOU WANT TO PLACE YOUR TATTOO. Tattoo placement is important as it helps me determine the size of the design you want, changing it later WILL incur extra charges.


BLACK & WHITE:


Starting at £200

Tattoo designs consisting of full black and white shading. A line-work version of the design can also be provided upon request to help the tattoo artist.

LINE WORK:


Starting at £150

Simplistic tattoo designs consisting of line work -only-.Can provide the option to change the line work to any colour, but black is often recommended for clarity of the design and to make it easier for the tattoo artist to work with.

FULL COLOUR:


Starting at £250

Tattoo designs consisting of full colour.Please keep in mind that palettes, though often vibrant, are limited. I cannot guarantee that your tattoo artist will be able to replicate the exact colours or shading. I recommend finding a Neo-Traditional tattoo artist and someone who has experience in working with vivid colour palettes.

FAQ


WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE?I use an iPad Pro 2018 12.9", Procreate to create and paint & Photoshop to recorrect colours.WHAT BRUSH DO YOU USE?Tinderbox ink brush almost always.DO YOU TAKE REQUESTS?Nope.CAN WE COLLABORATE?I only collaborate rarely and only with artists I know.WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TATTOO ART AND ILLUSTRATIVE WORKS?Whilst it may not look like much, there's in fact a big difference between the two. Firstly, the level of detail for my tattoo works a simplified immensely to ensure that they're not too overly complicated for a tattoo artist to handle.Tattoo works require a little more thought in terms of size = level of detail. Colours and lines also need to be a lot more simplified, too. Illustrative works are created with more detail, full array of colours and shading in mind. Whilst you could definitely get some of my illustrative works tattooed on your skin (and some have!), I do not take them as commissions and if you require something that detailed for a tattoo and I don't recommend it unless you are 100% confident you will be working with a tattoo artist that is also confident in inking it onto your skin.I REALLY LIKE THIS ART, CAN I GET IT TATTOOED?If there's a piece of art of mine that you really like, please send me an email or DM on twitter to ask, first. Some artworks are created as custom works for clients or are deeply personal to me, and thus are not intended to be used by anyone else. I also ask that you support me by becoming a Patron, or tipping me on Ko-Fi to support the artwork created and to help me out a little. Alternatively, you could always get a custom designed created to be used just for you. ;)CAN YOU GIVE ME ADVICE ON MY ART?I would love to help but I do get this request often the more I grow. I do my best to answer questions as and when I can but they can become rather time consuming for me to handle over time.WHERE CAN I SUPPORT YOU?You can become a Patron here: [ ], where I post my art and share with those in the community.Ko-Fi - sarahmasonart
