Whip-Shading & Illustrative Tattoo Artist
At CB Ink, our renowned tattoo artists are always honing their skills and keeping up with the latest tools and techniques. One of the modern techniques CB Ink artists excel at is whip-shading, an intricate method of shading that results in smooth gradients. Whip-shading is named for the whiplike movement of the tattoo needle across the skin, initially pressing in slightly deeper then flicking up and out to create a seamless dark-to-light gradient. It’s a little tricky to master, but the great thing about whip-shading is that it can reduce skin irritation and help your tattoo heal faster and smoother. With this technique the tattoo needle passes over the skin less times, which means the skin has less chance to be irritated.
Whether you’re after a delicate ankle piece or a full sleeve, CB Ink’s illustrative tattoo artists can work with you to create a design you’ll love using the whip-shading technique. While it tends to work best with designs that include natural surfaces such as skin, feathers and hair, we’re eager to discuss your ideas and guide you through our collaborative process with care. Check out our illustrative tattoo artists’ portfolios in the gallery below.

Thor prides himself on capturing the essence of the intricate details and inking it onto the right person.
