Read our interview with Craig, where he talks life, tattooing, and how he uses digital tools as a Traditional tattooer.
Tattoo Smart is proud bring you Stars & Dots: Traditional Vol. 1 by Craig Brock. When he began work on this project, Craig initially intended to make a flash set for himself with the imagery he loves and uses the most in his tattoos. Inspired by American Traditional themes, and including the most popular neo-traditional motifs, what started as a personal project quickly grew into a toolkit Craig knew could benefit any tattooer working in this style. Within the Procreate set, you will find 100 designs of the most common tattoo requests, ranging in size from small gap-fillers to complete scenes that can be the foundation for large-scale work.
What was once printed on individual sheets and distributed through mail order can now be accessed instantly on your iPad. While the originators of tattoo flash may not have envisioned the technology that would one day revolutionize tattoo design, they nevertheless would have supported the effort to keep up with the growing demand for tattoos of all styles, and the collective effort of the tattoo community to make the process more efficient. Stars & Dots: Traditional Vol. 1 is Craig's contribution to that effort, preserving traditional imagery and applying his own style to modernize both the process and the designs. Using Craig's set, you'll have the opportunity to do the same - work quickly and efficiently, and customize the designs to both your client's requests and your take on traditional tattoo style.
