Tattoo artists discover iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for their art

Tattoo-Artist Fred Giovannitti, a Las Vegas native has taken his art to a new level. He presents his customers with a preview photo of the tattooed body part. But how does he do it? You might think it requires a specialized tattoo app, but no, he just uses the drawing app ProCreate, his Apple Pencil and his iPad Pro. All Fred needs is a picture of the customer and he can get started on the personalized work of art. Customers are able to see the art on their own body and make an informed decision, whether the Tattoo reflects their personality and whether they want to bond with the image for a lifetime.

Gone are the times, when Fred sketched analog images and patterns on a piece of paper. His customers are even encouraged to watch the work on their tattoos in progress, thanks to the built-in time lapse feature of ProCreate. The preview picture is created during a personal conversation, where Fred listens intently to capture the mood and motivations of his customer as the defining characteristic of his illustration. If the customer is happy with the preview, it gets lined out on the skin and on it goes!

Giovannitti, uses ProCreate not only for his work as a tattoo artist, but also in his private life. He uses the app to reproduce his kids’ artwork with pencil and paper enhanced with Apple Pencil and iPad. These tender pictures are posted on Facebook and on his Instagram account.
