your tattoo designs have a meaning?
wonderful thing about art is that each person will see different things
an meanings behind a good piece of art. If you are looking for
meaningful tattoo designs I provide information on where some of his
designs get the inspiration from. For a description and meaning of some
of my tattoo designs please visit the Search
Tattoos by Name page.
designs the tattoos you display on this site?
the artwork that appear on shegsy.com are property of Raúl
Ortiz. Moreover, Raúl
distributes his artwork exclusively via shegsy.com.
paying for a tattoo design when I can get tattoos for free on the web?
All designs sold on Shegsy have been designed to be different to the
norm and with the hightest quality. There is lots of free flash and
free tattoo designs on the Internet, but in general, you get what you
pay for and moreover, you will possible end up with the same tattoo as
hundreds of people around the world. Remember, you are selecting a
design to permanently go on your body ans you should want the best.
All tattoo designs by Raúl Ortiz are exclusively available
on this website. You will not find Shegsy tattoo designs on any other
web page on the Internet.
Shegsy artwork is tattooable:
Some artwork is tattooable, some is not. A tattoo artist may put
something on your skin just to make the sale even if it won't hold up
over time. All designs on this site have been conceived as tattoo
designs to ensure that they will look perfect once tattooed on the
tattoos don't work out cheaper:
Paying an small amount of money for a tattoo design you really like is
negligible when comparing it to the total amount you'll spend to have
it tattoed on your skin. Instead of using the highest quality tattoos
designs for their trip to the tattoo shop, some people think that
copying the idea for a design and taking it to the tattoo parlour will
work out cheaper but the reality is quite different. Nobody works for
free so be sure that the tattoo parlour will possibly charge you (one
way or another) for the time he spends drawing your design. Apart from
that, the contribution you
make when downloading a design go towards the maintenance of this site,
so ensuring that we bring you amazing tattoo designs for years to come.
Feel free to contact
Raúl Ortiz if you need help with any
modification in size and colour of any of the designs, questions you
may have regarding an specific tattoo or custom tattoo requests. The
primary goal here is that you get the perfect tattoo so don't hesitate
to get in touch if you need any help.
do I print my tattoo design after I download it?
decent color printer will work. For best quality use a laser printer.
If you do not have a color printer you can transfer your images to a CD
or a memory stick and take it to your nearest copy center.
I change the color or size of a design?
you download your design and print it - Take it to your chosen tattoo
artist. Discuss with him/her what you would like to change. Changing
the colors and deleting or adding to certain aspects of the design
should never be a problem. Most designs can be made larger or smaller.
Some designs may not be able to be smaller due to the construction of
the design. Your artist will be able to determine that when he/she sees
it. You can always talk to another artist for a second opinion.
If you need any of the tattoo designs in a much larger size than the
one displayed on this site please contact me and I will ensure you get
a top quality version of the design in any size you want.
you do commissioned works?
artist does commissioned works as long as 'the project' is an
interesting one. Just drop
me a line
with your request and I'll make sure that your vision is turned into
you have a tattoo shop where to have one of your designs done?
as of today the artist only designs tattoos but he does not apply them
on the skin.
technique do you use for designing?
range of techniques used for designing tattoos varies from charcoal,
watercolour, bitmap and vector oriented graphics programs, etc. Raul Ortiz
in particular draws on paper and then treats the designs digitally.
it true that you always need a line art stencil?
tattoo websites promote uncertainty and doubt about this topic by
saying that if you bring tattoo designs into a studio without the line
art stencil (the basic outline of your design), the tattoo artist will
add the time it takes to re-draw the design and create line art into
the price of the tattoo. Although this can be true for very complex
designs such as portraits where a tattoo stencil comes handy, most
tattoo artists prefer to create their own stencils from the designs
that customers bring in to the tattoo shop, and any professional tattoo
artist will create your stencil in only a few moments and as part of
the tattooing process and will not charge you extra for doing so. The
reason for this is that the tattoo parlour will always have to re-draw
the tattoo design on transfer paper so the drawing sticks to the skin
and it is at that point when the tattoo parlour will create the tattoo
stencil he really needs for the design at hand.
tattoo parlour has told me that he cannot tattoo the design I just
on this site
have been conceived as tattoo designs with the right resolution and
size so they can be tattooed without any problems. If this happens to
you I recommend visiting another tattoo studio and seek a second
opinion. Some inexperienced or unskilled tattoo artists usually (and
luckily) avoid complicated jobs and prefer to refuse work justifying
themselves on the grounds that the supplied tattoo design is not
appropriate. Obviolusly tattoo design that contain many details and/or
fine lines leve no margin for errors so you should look for the best
possible artist. In this regard I can not stress enough the importance
of researching your artist's previous works and studio.
