Sometimes we fall in love with fictional characters that want to be with them always. Why not make a tattoo of favorite hero? It can be portraits of characters from books, movies, cartoons and even the heroes of myths and folklore that are especially sunk into the soul. Usually such strong feelings come not just. This may be due to the desire to acquire the qualities of character, or have the appearance as that of your favorite character. Today we will talk about tattoos of anime characters.
The subjects of tattoos
Tattoo from the manga and anime are often made not only because of the passion of one or another hero, and as a reminder of the carefree and happy childhood. Children of the nineties and zero certainly looking forward to the new series “sailor moon” and “Pokemon”. Little warrior, leading a double life and fighting for good and justice, simply could not remain indifferent to children, especially girls, and about the magical pocket monsters probably dreamed of every child. Tattoo from the anime — it’s like a childhood dream come true.
Particularly noteworthy are the characters created by Hayao Miyazaki. In his work fall in love once and for all. Outstanding storyline, vivid characters, deep meaning hidden in every story, having not only entertaining, but also instructive. “Princess Mononoke” “My neighbor Totoro”, “spirited away” and other works of Hayao Miyazaki is rightfully considered classics of Japanese animation. Some of the characters created by the master of animation, had an impact not only on popular culture. For example, Totoro (good forest spirit with whom in the story meets a little girl, and then he helps her) became a symbol of the struggle for the salvation of the terrain, which was recreated in the anime, from development.
The plot of the tattoo can replicate any scene from the anime that was especially memorable or of great importance for the customer, it may be just a portrait of your favorite character. However, often the tattoo with the image of heroes in the traditional Japanese animation style does not have relationship to existing anime. Anime fans often order masters sketches depicting their family and friends in the form of cartoon characters and even their own portraits. It may be just characters invented by the customer. Such work will undoubtedly be unique, this will indicate the interest of the customer in this type of art.
Styles and composition
When choosing a composition is not necessarily limited to one specific plot of the cartoon. If you are planning major work, such as, a sleeve or tattoo on his back, you can create a large-scale painting depicting the characters, the terrain and other elements that were present in several favorite anime. For example, often you can find a faceless God Kaonashi from “spirited away” and the good master of the forest Totoro in the same work.
The most suitable style for tattoo of anime this is, perhaps, the twin tips. In this style due to the clear contours and bright colors cartoon characters look the most authentic. Cool will look, for example, a large-scale tattoo with the image of a Walking castle and heroes from anime on the background of a mountainous landscape in the style of twin tips. Small works, for example, a picture of a smiling Yes and a magical goldfish Ponyo will look bright and very cute, this tattoo will definitely cause others not only curiosity, but also a smile.
Cute bright cats of the “sailor moon” would look childish, but will delight not only the owner of tattoo, but everyone who will stop her look.
It is interesting to look watercolors depicting characters from the anime. This style is especially good for tattoo with spirits and various supernatural and otherworldly entities. Thanks to its lightness, airiness, blurred contours, the almost complete lack of clarity, he seems to emphasize the belonging of these characters to another world. For example, watercolor is perfect for the image of Kaonashi.
Another original idea — landscape, inscribed in the silhouette, which you can easily find out your favorite character. For example, it may be a forest spirit Totoro, which is clearly impossible with no one to confuse. Its silhouette may be like a window into the world of bright colors of nature green forest, flower field, autumn leaf fall.
It is noteworthy that the Japanese themselves gave the world many masterpieces of animation, most of them have a negative attitude to the tattoo art. If you happen to have a small tattoo, before to get in public place, such as in a bath, you may be asked to cover up the figure with plaster, so as not to confuse other visitors. If your tattoo is too big to hide and it does not work, you can even prohibit to enter. This is because the early drawings on the body were the hallmark of gang members. This Association is so ingrained in the minds of the Japanese that there even were laws that forbade wearing the tattoo at the state level. More modern inhabitants of the Country of the rising sun often prefer serious stories drawn from mythology, choose images of animals, plants and mythical characters that have special symbolism. Not so common to see Japanese with a comic or a pretty picture from the anime on the body.
Cartoon tattoos may look naive, but they are positive emotions. If you believe in that character the tattoo is really able to give a man some of his qualities, his destiny, the hero of the anime is a great choice. They are always endowed with a strong character, achieve their goals, and their stories always have a happy ending.
