Hong Kong Student Tattooist Juliana
At our tattoo school Thailand in Hua Hin, our student Juliana had came to us with no knowledge of tattooing whatsoever and was about to embark on a journey and create her very first tattoo renditions. Armed only with her wild and cheeky personality, she didn’t hold back and threw himself into the foray of all the knowledge we wanted to impart onto her.
Juliana’s very first tattoo design was her rendition of a flaming skull. Straight away, our team recognised that she had talent. Juliana demonstrated an innate knowledge of black and white work, utilizing shadows to create depth and emotion; portraying the flaming skull with a wildness that is displayed by creating depth around the eyes.
She had also demonstrated her aptitude for the precision needed in line work, which could be seen in her rendition of‘Jesus with Cross’ tattoo. Juliana conveyed the deep emotion within the intricate detailing of the facial lines and in the crown of thorns. her tattoo designs had also enveloped a mesmeric tone of emotion that was the result of her constant practicing and familiarity with technique subtleties.
With her increasing knowledge and fondness for the skull motif, Juliana had decided to implement colour work into her designs. She Flaming Skull with knife rendition is a clear example of her determination to master every facet of tattooing. Employing a ‘New School’ style to challenge herself further, she went about using a colour combination of orange and blue, a complimentary colour explosion of contrasts that had an invigorating effect.
At our tattoo artist studio, we noticed there was no stopping Juliana when she took on a whole array of varying designs that consisted of a mainstream star design utilizing minimal line work and monotone colour palettes to a contrasting biomechanical tattoo that consisted of complex line structures to create a visually 3D effect.
The culmination of all of Juliana’s hard work, mastering the numerous tattoo skills that she had to learn was fully realized in her owl design renditions. As if to demonstrate her complete mastery over the colour work techniques that were taught, she constructed a blue owl design that encapsulated an array of blue shades that highlighted the cascading feathers of the beautiful creature. She also couldn’t resist making the design her own by injecting an element of her own personality by giving the owl a hat and sunglasses, which added some great humour to the piece overall.
Juliana is great example of what a newbie can achieve at our tattoo school Thailand in Hua Hin. If you would like to venture down a similar journey, than what are you waiting for!
