LARRY BROGAN’S TRICKS OF THE TRADE
DEVELOPING a STYLE
Every artist wants to be recognized for their art and they want it to stand out among all others as distinctively their own. in the world of tattooing, you will find many artists whose work is as recognizable as their names, such as Guy Aitchison, Paul Booth and Joe Capobianco. People like this may have been born to be artists but the skills they posses did not come easy. They where developed over decades of constant study and practice with a pencil and paper. nearly any visual art starts off as a drawing, be it a quick thumbnail sketch or a fully rendered, meticulous design. By studying the work of artists they admire and borrowing from everyday influences like fashion magazines, horror movies and even the texture of the nature around us, artists piece together a mixture of what they observe, along with the spark that resides within their own mind, body and soul. if they dedicate themselves, hopefully what emerges is a signature style all their own that, at a glance, people know who created it.
