So you’re in Orlando and you want to get an Illustrated tattoo.
Firstly, you’re in the right place. This is the land of make believe inspired by the very first animated illustration there ever was. It’s also the land of Hart & Huntington Orlando, hands down the best Orlando tattoo shop.
Secondly, you should know that Illustrated tattoos don’t necessarily mean “cartoons.”
Illustrative tattoos are actually perhaps the most agile tattoos you can get because they can take many forms. The idea with Illustrative ink is to create an image as an illustration, like the kind you’d see in a storybook, versus something photorealistic.
Sure, they can look kinda real, but they intentionally lean into artistic techniques used throughout history to bring a subject or scene to life.
Illustrative tattoos use cross hatching, fine lines and stippling for shading, much like you’d find in an illuminated manuscript, ancient etching or engraving, or even an impressionist painting.
Others can look more like a sketch or pencil drawing on skin instead of paper. More modern Illustrative tattoos might take on a more spray-painted look. The beauty with this type of tattoo is there are so many ways to interpret it.
Regardless of which tattoo style you want, Illustrative tattoos are a great option if you’re looking for something creative, eye-catching and distinctly you.
From fine art to cartoon animation, our Orlando tattoo artists can create an Illustrative tattoo that’ll exceed your expectations. That’s because everyone on our staff is a true artist—they just happen to work on skin versus a sketchbook.
