Best Practices for Shaded Designs
(1) Use shades that are high in contrast with one another. If the shades are too similar, the differences won’t be noticeable on the final printed design.
(2) Avoid using large blocks (more than half) of solid black or grey tones in your design. High amounts of concentrated ink can cause ink transfer or smudging during application and development.
(3) Use a full 0-100% range of gradients. More subtle ranges (ex. 30-60%) won't be visible once the tattoo is applied.
