"I've always been intimidated by Illustrator, but I know it's the best program out there for geometric design. So I was excited when Cassady Bell agreed to show us his methods. Cassady does an excellent job of explaining the software in a way that makes me, as a tattooer, understand. And the best part is, you don't even need a graphics tablet to use this software. You can do it all with a keyboard!"         -Russ Abbott Ink & Dagger Tattoo, founder of Tattoo Smart. 

Adobe Illustrator® is the primary design software used by graphic designers to create precise vector-based logos and artwork. Illustrator also happens to be very well suited for creating geometric patterns for a tattoo design.

In this 4 Part video series, Geometric tattooer Cassady Bell demonstrates the intermediate tools and techniques that he uses to create his mind-blowing, technically precise geometric tattoo designs. This series expands on the 3 videos in the BASIC series to further your understanding of the essential geometric design techniques in Illustrator®.
