cecilporterstudios Did this yesterday on @crazyruben, he's been coming to me since 2009 and if it weren't for him I'd not be the tattooist I am today. He allowed me to do what I wanted and try new techniques when no one else would. And has win me over 50 of the awards I've gotten. Thanks for all your help buddy it means so much. Follow him for a crazy feed that is always entertaining. @crazyruben #Marilyn #monroe #marilynmonroe #icon #legend #beautiful #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #artist #ink #inked #portland #pdx #emporium1476 1w

cecilporterstudios Start to a huge cover up on my buddy Joe. Sits like a champ can't wait to do more work on him. Most of this is healed some is fresh and some we went back into because the scaring from his old tattoo rejected some ink. #owl #nature #animals #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #artist #ink #inked #emporium1476 #portland #pdx #oregon @fusion_ink @the_glove_4_the_artist @inkmachines_christian 4w

cecilporterstudios Here is the finished James Brown piece. So in the 3rd stage I will have decided and laid in the under painting tones useing warms and cools to make areas project and recess. Much the same way atmospheric perspective makes things feel close or far. Then I'll start laying in the flesh tones. I willingly leave areas where the under painting colors show through. In others places I will use the under painting to create my values in my flesh. I mainly work off of a black and white reference so that my values are clear and I have more freedom with color. Once I've filled the whole thing in I reassess any areas that may need more exaggeration like eyes wrinkles lips. Then highlights and done. This piece was 5 hrs long thanks for lookin. #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #artist #music #star #legend #singer #emporium1476 #portland #pdx #oregon @fusion_ink @inkmachines_christian @the_glove_4_the_artist 1mon

cecilporterstudios WIP Steps 1&2 stencil and outline/solid black I usually structure out my pieces like this now I know the structure is there. I then begin to "tile" in my under painting this will set the "mood for the piece. Usually dark warms around the nose and cheeks cools around the eyes and mouth. More to come in a couple hrs. The whole tattoo is done in one session usually 5 hrs or so. #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #ink #inked #emporium1476 #wip #portland #oregon @fusion_ink @the_glove_4_the_artist @inkmachines_christian 1mon
  •   nashvegasart @cecilporterstudios cool! I like how explain your process can't wait for finished piece! 1mon
  •   onlyinsight Get funky 1mon
  •   samaeltattoo @cecilporterstudios dude, there is not much I wouldn't do to come spend a bit of time picking your brains. I feel my progress is 2 steps forward, 2 steps back sometimes. 1mon
  •   fleurtufnell Thanks so much for sharing, learning all the time :) 1mon
  •   eyecandytattoo Thanks for your process....any tips on a longerlasting stencil? @cecilporterstudios thanks 1mon
  •   cecilporterstudios @eyecandytattoo I always wipe the skin down with rubbing alcohol then let it dry ofcourse. Then I'll put on stencil stuff and the stencil. The alcohol seems to dry the skin out a bit more and let's the stencil stick better. Also use lots of petroleum while tattooing you won't have to wipe as much. I prefer aquafor it seems to reduce swelling. And one thing for sure don't use green soap! It has alcohol in it and will destroy ur stencil very quickly ill just use a tiny bit of dial but a lot I guys only use water until they get it mapped in. Hope this helps! 1mon
  •   eyecandytattoo @cecilporterstudios thanks so much for the pointers ill def be changing up my stencil process....love your portraits especially the colours you use that id think would not work but add so much to the final piece...think i need to experiment more...cheers again 1mon

cecilporterstudios My client comes in to start his backpiece and brings the smartest ,cutest ,six yr old with him ever(Sydney). She wants to paint ,so I get her all set up while I work on him. During a break, I think ,man how cool would it be to do a collaboration with her and give it to her, right. So I ask her she says yes and so I give her a piece of watercolor paper and just tell her to splash around color ,then a toothbrush and show her how to do that, then a spray bottle. Then I tell her to tell me what to turn it into. She says a purple monster with feet like a coyote ,huge bushy eyebrows ,green eyes and a butterfly, and most importantly an EXPOSED BRAIN! Well here is my collaboration with Sydney done. Thanks so much for all the help Syd, couldn't have done it without ya!!!! 1mon
