Must not be too great if they need a stencil. Ive seen some nice work and it was done free handed. Only an amateur would use a stencil. Any 4 year old can color and stay in the lines.

Most artists draw the original work by hand and some also take advantage of photo editing tools. From there they use a machine to create a stencil for the linework. This ensure exact placement for the customer as well as guideline for all the heavy lines. All details such as shading and color are then done completely freehand.

Why would you not use a stencil? The technology has come down considerably in price and even the celebrity artist use them at times, or at least draw the artwork onto the skin which is the exact same thing. Even some porn stars use condoms, that doesn't mean you should catch the herps just because you think you're a sexual artist.

I agree that there are some awesome freehand artists out there but most artists use a stencil too insure that all linework is in all the right spots. Bob tyrell, Paul Booth, Corey Miller, all the artists at L.A. Ink, even the ink master Shane O'Neil use stencils. So now why are us tattoo artists around here lame again?
