Little crystal Gecko up for grabs.
This is my favourite colour palette, I just love the options I have with it, and when put onto skin, these colours work really well.
With most colours of tattoo ink it’s nearly impossible to match the colour saturation vibrancy of digital artwork, *especially when healed*
When you have prepared a painting with little regard for the inks you will use for the tattoo, the result can be disappointing for yourself and the customer when it doesn’t quite pop as a tattoo.
For a while now when picking colours for digital painting I will completely ignore around 10% of the fully saturated spectrum of RGB colour for that reason. If a colour sneaks in that looks too vivid, I’ll knock it back with a few light brushstrokes on a layer set to the saturation blend mode.
CMYK colour picking would be a more realistic comparison to tattoo ink but sadly it’s not an option in procreate yet.
You can start with a custom palette in procreate that only contains accurate tattoo ink colours, but when mixing and blending lots of hues and tones like I have been doing, I’ve found it best to just remind myself every now and then not to go too bright.
It’s also the reason why all my artwork is on a light grey background similar to the value of pale skin, I’ve tried doing designs on a skin tone background, but it looks a little odd to try and showcase the design that way.
