Stipple Work by Steve

“Stippling is the creation of a pattern simulating varying degrees of solidity or shading by using small dots. Such a pattern may occur in nature and these effects are frequently emulated by artists.

[…] This is similar to – but distinct – from pointillism, which uses dots of different colours to simulate blended colors.”

And stippling is one of Steve's favorite things these days. Check out this half-sleeve below. Like it? Want something in this style? Give the shop a call, and we'll get you in for a consult! 978.744.9393

Stipple Tattoo by Steve Gillespie

Artist: Steve Gillespie

A great example of a (monochromatic) stipple tattoo.  Stippling is the technique of using small dots to simulate varying degrees of solidity or shading.  Unlike pontillism which uses a variety of colors stippling uses only one.  In the above photo you can see that Steve, one of our Witch City Ink artists used red dots to create this piece of body art.
