    Fake skin and shading.

    Ok so I’ve ran into a couple of issues when doing my first portrait on fake skin. 1) The stencil will not come off! I’ve tried alcohol and bleach. It’s just not budging. 2) my shading isn’t smooth. I don’t quite know what I’m doing wrong? Any help appreciated!

    Greek tattoo- 15 or 16th tattoo to date.

    Recently done this Greek god tattoo, took about 7 hours. Used 3rl, 9m, 13cm, 17cm. Internal black ink. My own critique- stencil rubbed off slightly on moustache so the shading went slightly darker than I would of liked it too. Let me know what you think! Cheers joe
