Tattoo Johnny tattoo design downloads are scanned at high resolutions to give you the most flexibility possible. You can use your computer to resize the image to make it larger or smaller.

Keep in mind that detailed images should be tattooed large enough so that the details are clear and easy for the tattooist to accurately render on your skin.
Combining parts of different images is a very common way of creating a custom one-of-a-kind tattoo. Some people will actually mix up to 5 or more designs to make a single unique masterpiece. After you select a few designs and download them to you computer you can arrange them just how you like. You might like the wings from one design and the body from another. You may use parts of each tattoo and combine them to make one really great piece of art.

Most people don't realize that every tattoo design has a matching stencil. When you get tattooed, the stencil is applied directly to your skin . The tattooist will use a machine called a "liner" to set your stencil permanently into the skin. Do not be tempted to get tattooed solely from your color reference or from an inferior hand-traced stencil. Trying to trace or copy a stencil is the number one cause of bad tattoos. With Tattoo Johnny's ORIGINAL ARTIST STENCILS, every curve and detail of your design will be accurate.
Also be sure to bring a good copy of your reference image. Your tattooist will use the reference image as a guide to see how your tattoo should be colored or shaded.
Every Tattoo Johnny tattoo design download will include a reference image and a tattoo stencil. Simply print the stencil and the reference image on regular paper and bring them to the tattooist of your choice.
