It’s really interesting to take an up-close work at Erin’s tattoos to see the kinds of techniques that the artist uses. In full figurative sleeves, featuring not only faces but architectural and sculptural details, the artist does a great job of creating depth and volume using a combination of smooth gradient shading and bright white highlights.

It’s always impressive to see photorealistic tattoo portraiture that truly captures the detail and expressions of the subjects. Erin’s portfolio encompasses both celebrity portraiture and clients’ family and friends, and the artist achieves each portrait with an eye for detail and a careful, steady hand.
