Donâ€™t confuse Demon Tattoo studio with the one in England, this one is located in La Seu dâ€™Urgell, a town located north-east of Spain. The shop is owned by Daniel Martos who specializes in photorealist tattoos including portraits of celebrities, movie characters, and clientsâ€™ loved ones and pets. You can see an improvement in Martosâ€™ portraiture from 2010 to nowâ€”i.e. his soft shading has always been present, but he is adding much more detail to the faces and composes the designs better on the bodies. The artist uses a lot of Black Scorpion ink for his monochromatic work and sometimes adds blue ink onto the shading to give it a cool black appearance (an example is the woman in kimono, fifth image); a technique that graphic designers utilize when printing different tones of black.
