seminar dvds

Posted by andrewc on 01/19/10


Ok so it seems lately theres been a surge of dvds from a number of talented artists doing portraits, color portraits, b&g, pinups, traditional pretty well everything imaginable im not knocking them at all i think its great that people are will to share what they know to those willing to pay the price but im wondering if the great people on this forum might be able to point me in the right direction im looking to buy one but havent really seen any "youtube trailers" or anything so im not sure what it might entail like im looking at the rob laux dvds on color portraits/ black and grey(with black/white mix) and another set of dvds calls helpful hints for tattooing potraits they sound as though they might be the same both doing color and the non gray wash black and gray so if you guys can help me out id really appreciate it

Hey Man I own just a few that are really good.

-Tattooing Portraits by Nikko Hurtado
- Joshua Carlton Seminars (really good and a totally different approach from most other DVDs)
- Reinventing the Tattoo by Guy Aitchison 2nd Edition. Its a thick ass color book with a DVD companion. This book/ DVD is great for new and advanced tattooers.
- I've heard good things about Mike Devries dvd but haven't seen it.

i have a few different dvds..all josh carltons are great,the 2nd & 3rd are my favorite of his!! they are in real time so you can see his hand movements/motion clearly..nikkos is really good too,its like a 7hr tattoo on a 3hr disk so the tattooing is sped up(i personally didnt like that) and he narrates the video.but very informative..i also have the 2nd edition book/dvd of reinventing the tattoo by guy aitchinson..if you dont have that book id say get that DEFINITLY! its worth every dollar spent and more.it doesnt matter what style tattoos you do or how long youve been at it there is tons of priceless info in it.ive been tattooed by joe cap and nate beavers so i prob wont end up buying those since ive seen first hand how they work..id love to see russ abbotts and mike devries,so i'll purchase theres soon..hope that helps a little

Franco Vescovi's DVD "Mastering Portraits" is awesome for B/G style!! as well as any J Carltons DVDs. Nikko Hurtado's is pretty cool also.

its worth noting that many of these are available online in one place at Tattoo Education.com.. Thats a blatant plug. I believe Nate Beavers also has a DVD that people have reported enjoying. The gnomeworkshop people have a bunch of artist dvds, and it seems like they are all pretty good quality, though, I havnt actually seen em.

Yeah, Nate Beavers "Tres Cavaleras" dvd is pretty sweet. the portrait one is pretty good too, but I got more out of the 3 skulls. Nikko's dvd is great too. If you haven't picked up Guy's Reinventing the tattoo book yet though thats def my top pick.

Well I doubt you'll find one that doesn't speed through some parts. I mean for the most part seminar dvd tattoos seem to be 6+ hour tattoos. But they all usually slow down in parts and you should be able to get a good look how they are moving. Both Nikko's and Nate Beavers dvds talk about their hand movements and stuff outside from traditional ovals and whipshading. Stuff like that is not really gonna click though until you get used to incorporating the movements into your tattooing. Watching their hand movements and stuff will help, but it's largely something you'll learn to feel as your tattooing, especially considering the infinite variables involved in the tattooing process. At least that's how it was with me. The best things I took out of the seminar dvds I've seen was the artists overall process and what they focused on capturing form, or tone, or whatever.
