Monumental Ink

Realism Tattoos

Realism is a style that artists need to work hard to master. The artist must understand the fundamentals of shadows, shading, light and dark before they can fully do a realism piece justice. 

Portraits especially come with a huge amount of pressure, particularly when depicting a loved one. This is where choosing your artist is key to make sure it is done justice. Realism can come in colour or black and grey. Some artists will also have their own spin on it too.

Here is some Realism tattoos done by resident artists and guest spot artists. Click on the links to see more and find out which studio they will be working at

Great experience with Aggie as my tattoo artist. Everyone is so friendly and the place itself is so clean and modern. They have many artists here to choose from each with their own style. Any design you need can be catered for. Highly recommend.

I literally cannot stop looking at my new (of many more to come) addition done by Aggie yesterday. She is so perfectly light-handed and pays nothing but strict attention to detail from start to finish. Eddie was also fabulous in making me sugary tea to keep me going too! I honestly cannot recommend 'Monumental' enough - so friendly and beyond talented!!!
