Tattoo Shoot Wardrobe/Makeup

The point of the tattoo/body art portraits in these photo shoots is to tell a story about the individual while emphasizing their body art. To that point, your wardrobe can be as much or as little as you are comfortable with but keep in mind we are trying to display your body art as much as possible while having a look that represents who you are.

Ideally, you should bring at least three different outfits, but you may bring more or less if you like. These should be different styles and colors (although solids tend to work better than patterns) and should represent the look that represents you. While you don’t need to bring your entire closet with you, the more options, the better is the general rule. I don’t want you to get bogged down by having to bring a ton of clothes, but you can bring as many as you like—and you can never bring too many!

Have your makeup little heavier than you would normally wear it and also bring some for retouching or if you want to try some different looks. I have a makeup station in the studio as well if you need to put makeup on there.
