    Default Reproducing shades of the traditional tattoos on tshirts

    Hello,
    I'd like to print traditional tattoos on tshirts. The traditional tattoos have got particular shades, generally red and black like these:











    I'd like to know how I can reproduce these shades in Illustrator/Photoshop and how print them (halftones/stochastic?)

    Thanks,
    Fabio

    I still don't understand your problem with the universe.

    Perhaps it's time to finish to say in every post you've the knowledge but you don't want to share it?

    Have a nice day,
    Fabio

    I'm guessing stochastic would work to get that shading looking organic and fluid, IMO halftones look very mechanical compared to randomized shading.

    Because his knowledge is valuable and you continually come here asking for quick solutions and techniques that many of us have spent years developing.

    "HIRE" was the key word. Add some value to this community instead of continually sucking the knowledge base.
