Joel Wright Art
Working and talking with Joel is not about “getting a tattoo”, but instead about acquiring a personally symbolic work of art that stays with you for life. Not all tattoos have to mean something, but it’s impossible to come out of the experience of working with Joel untouched. He is kind and thoughtful, and his beautiful and artistic spirit makes the experience unique. The discussions of design, the road trip to get there and back, his passion for what he does, the personal and devoted time in his chair – unforgettable.In addition to my body art, I was so impressed by his work that I asked Joel to create a highly personal painting for a friend, representing the spirit of a beloved departed pet. I saw his work in progress, but nothing prepared me for the beauty of the final product. Like all his work – it comes alive due to his talents.Thank you Joel, I’ll be back.
Watercolor Styled Tattoos
What does a watercolor tattoo artist do differently than any tattoo artist? Will the watercolor tattoo last like a normal tattoo etc? The truth is theres no difference in techniques other than style!
The watercolor tattoo artist painting sets the style and after that is complete its just a matter of making the tattoo look like the painting.
That is why the creative process is so important however. Without the painting then there would be no real direction for the tattoo and it yields much better outcomes to have the design in place before the tattoo begins.
The Creative Process
Once you contact me through email, then we discuss your design request. You can send a description of what you want and inspiration pics if needed. If your design is accepted then I will explain the pricing and scheduling.
Before I start your artwork I will do a photoshop layout of the composition for your tattoo design. Then I paint a watercolor painting of your tattoo that I will use in reference for your tattoo. You get to keep the artwork after the tattoo is complete.
We then schedule at a time that you and I are both available!
