We are really enjoying this illustrative series and hope that you are too! Today we have a real treat with some great knowledge drops from killer artist and good buddy of mine, Cooper. Coop is very much about his process, he's very thoughtful, plans very thoroughly and is extremely process oriented. So, if you're curious about how really high level illustrative style tattooers plan their tattoos out and execute, this is the episode for you. Cooper has a very specific kind of order of operations that he goes through with each and every tattoo and was kind enough to lay it out for us, sit back, take notes and enjoy! Let us know what your process is, how it's similar or different?
