Because of copyright issues I had to pick a song that is going to play on repeat in this video. I don’t talk so if you wanna listen to something else you can just turn off the volume on this video and listen to whatever you like ^^
I did not film while making the sketch because it takes a long time to sketch and my camera can’t film for HOOOURS straight so that’s why the sketch was already done when I started filming 🙂

I got asked a few times about what is considered copying and what is just taking inspiration. Obviously we all want to create original artwork but even the best will take inspiration from other places and use reference, but they wont rip other people off without crediting them. This is basically a guide to what I think is too far when using someone elses artwork for inspiration and how to use reference and make compositions that are totally original.

Recommended Reading! Sean Hobdens book…it’s AMAZING trust me especially if you’re into traditional tattoos:

How to Draw a Penrose Triangle – Tattoo Design Style

How to draw a Penrose Triangle, (also known as ‘The Impossible Triangle’) in a tattoo design style.

If your familiar with my channel you will know I’ve already made an impossible triangle video, but this time I have drawn it in reverse, or the opposite way.. Apparently it’s more difficult to draw this way.. But I can honestly say there is no difference. For fun I decided to shade it in a tattoo design style. If you like it please give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends…

How to Design a Flash Sheet | Tattoo Artist

Watch more How to Be a Tattoo Artist videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509128-How-to-Design-a-Flash-Sheet-Tattoo-Artist

These are some examples of flash sheet that I did, actually probably in 2005, so it’s been a long time ago, still current. I like to do, or tell my artists to do flash sheets, and actually practice flash sheets. I know we all grew up with the Go Cherry Creek, Paul Booth flash, you know, when we were coming up tattooing, and this is really good art for the walls. We have a lot of good artists coming up. I got a lot of inspiration from Dave Fox and Mark Lacoste. Basically what it does is get your ideas out of your head, and you can actually work with watercolors. We can also, you can learn how to use watercolor, in painting your flash, and you’re using a lot of the same techniques, when you’re doing your flash, you’re actually tattooing, so you’re building your craft. You’re actually working on your craft in a way that you’re painting. I always tell up and coming artists to keep watercoloring. Water coloring is very, very essential to learning color blending, learning what colors go with what, how to blend this or how to blend that, because I tattoo the same way as I watercolor.

When you do a flash sheet, you’re actually using ideas from other people, and it’s a way to… you can see these as prints and at conventions. I like to put out my art and, like I said, doing a flash sheet, you’re actually able to get it out there, let people see your actual artwork. They might like your ideas. And I always say you don’t pick this as your tattoo, don’t pick it as your tattoo, you say I like something like that. I call it more, rather than a flash, more of an artist reference, you like my idea, draw one, draw your own, just use my idea, my format and do your own. Do it like you’re painting a painting, fill it up, pick two or three, maybe four primary designs and build from that. Make a little depth, make it a little scene, put some things together that actually work together. I do a lot of flowers and koi fish, flowers and koi fish work well. Flowers and flowers and flowers work well, mix it up. I don’t like to mix a couple of different genres together, I like to keep Japanese with Japanese, and traditional with traditional, so just have fun with it.
