The illustrative style is another technique whose roots should be found in various drawing arts. This time, however, the reference point for tattooists specializing in illustrative tattoos are colorful pictures known from fairy tales and fairy tales for the youngest. In the case of illustrative patterns, the tattoo artist first puts an outline, which he fills in with colors using various shading techniques: with lines, whips or full filling. In this type of design, detail counts, which is why they are often supplemented with dot-bag elements. The colors of such tattoos are subdued; not as saturated as in the case of cartoon patterns. Illustrative style is great for fantasy, portrait, animal and plant themes, and for the direct reproduction of book illustrations or pictures.
