Module 1: Simplified Light Theory

simplified tattoo light theory

We learn a foundation in light/value theory, simplified to five levels, which makes tattooing with value easy. We reduce all of light theory to worrying about one sentence: “How much light is on the object?”. This 5-Value foundation based on how light works, opens up an entire world of simplified and applied color theory.
