Cartoon en manga tattoos

Cartoon en manga tattoos: disney en meer

Laat je innerlijke Disney-fan of Anime-fan helemaal vrij en bezegel die liefde met een prachtige cartoon en manga tattoo. Deze tattoos gaan hand in hand en vinden hun oorsprong bij bekende figuren, series en tekenfilms. Natuurlijk is er een groot verschil tussen cartoon, manga én anime tattoos. Het ene speelt zich eerder af in de Westerse wereld en het ander in de Japanse cultuur. Elk van beiden kan in alle stijlen mogelijk!

In deze blog nemen we je alvast mee doorheen tattooland.

Wat is een cartoon & manga tattoo?

Een cartoon en manga tattoo zijn 2 verschillende dingen maar waarom nemen we deze samen? Omdat ze allebei gebaseerd zijn op een soort van Comics. Beide onderwerpen groeien in complexiteit, wij moeten én gaan daarin mee. Het all round cartoon genre van jaren geleden heeft plaats gemaakt voor vernieuwde verbeeldingen met invloeden uit het fotorealisme en new school.

‘Cartoon’ op zich is niet echt een tattoostijl, maar verwijst eerder naar het onderwerp. Je kan je cartoon onderwerp laten uitwerken in meerdere stijlen, meestal in dezelfde stijl als je cartoonfiguur zelf. Bijvoorbeeld Micky Mouse uit het begin van vorige eeuw is veel simpeler en zouden we eerder gewoon ‘allround‘ of ‘oldschool‘ noemen, terwijl Elsa uit Frozen al eerder fotorealisme zou zijn. Vele cartoon characters zijn mogelijk in verschillende stijlen.

Manga & anime tattoos

Eerder hebben we gesproken dat cartoon tattoos niet hetzelfde zijn als manga & anime tattoos. Maar manga & anime tattoos zijn ook niet hetzelfde. Verwarrend, I know.

Maar laten we voor eens en altijd duidelijk zijn: manga en anime zijn geen synoniemen. De term manga refereert naar de tekenstijl in de comics terwijl anime gaat over de tekenfilms. Animeseries baseren zich op de manga’s.

We spreken over cartoonstijl, maar stiekem is cartoon geen stijl. Het is een onderwerp.

Er is een stijl die van nature een cartooneske look met zich meedraagt, new school. Het omvat een dramatische omlijsting van het ontwerp op een hedendaagse manier. Grote cartooneske ogen, overdreven lichaamsdelen, … Je vindt het allemaal terug in de new school stijl.

Cartoons waren altijd al een populair onderwerp. Wat vroeger meer een all round genre was, maakte de laatste jaren een shift naar een complexer gegeven. De (Disney) cartoons van vandaag zijn niet meer die van gisteren.

 

MANGA & ANIME TATTOO DESIGNS

De manga tekenstijl schreeuwt losse en vloeiende lijnen in combinatie met onbeheerste fantasie. Termen die perfect samen horen met tattoos, en laat dat net onze specialiteit zijn!

Net zoals wij tattoos op maat maken, doet anime dat ook. Het zijn op maat gemaakte series voor publiek van alle leeftijden. De onderwerpen en series rijken iets verder dan ons felbegeerde Pokémon. Deze thema’s kunnen vaak heel donker en ernstig zijn terwijl sommige betrekking hebben op romantiek en zelfexpressie.

Vandaar dat manga tattoos heel uiteenlopend zijn. De ene persoon ziet graag hele donkere animeseries wat leidt tot een donkere manga tattoo. Een Pokémon-fan zet dan al graag een vrolijke en schattige Jiggly Puff. Jij vraagt, wij draaien. Of beter gezegd: tatoeëren.

videogame tattoo designs

Videospelkarakters zoals Mario en Luigi zien we ook vaak terug bij cartoon tattoos. Vaak symboliseren karakters uit dit genre plezier uit de kindertijd en een gevoel van vriendschap en verbondenheid. Natuurlijk zijn er heel wat meer videogames dan de gebroeders Mario, maar het is een old time favourite.

Welke cartoon tattoo je ook kiest, ongeacht deze voorbeelden, er staat altijd een Inksane-team aan artiesten voor je klaar. Elke artiest is gespecialiseerd in een of meerdere stijlen, inclusief cartoon & manga tattoos!

 

Dit zijn onze cartoon & manga artiesten:

FAQ

Alle studio's zijn open van dinsdag tem zaterdag, telkens tussen 11.00 en 18.00 uur.

Appointments with guest artists can also take place on Sundays and Monays

Our reception takes care of the bookings, organization and appointments.

Often the high artistic qualities of our artists are accompanied by a lack of social and organizational skills 😉
This is not always the case though, but it's a handy guideline.

Most of the time we are indeed, but contact our reception to be sure!

Our reception is open from Tuesday until Saturday.
You can walk in without appointment, with all your questions.

Appointments with our guestartists could be on a Sunday, Monday or holiday because they usually work 7/7 for the short period they are here.

A guest artist is a high level artist from another country coming to our shop for a short period of time (for example 3 weeks).

Checking the design always happens in our shop. We don't send the design by e-mail. Because your guest artist is not in the shop permanently, checking your design beforehand is not always convenient. If you really want to see your design beforehand, we will schedule an appointment of 15 minutes on day 1 and your tattoo appointment will be on day 5 for example.

We schedule one client per guest artist a day. On the day of your appointment you will have enough time to discuss and adapt your design if necessary.

Do you want to see the design beforehand? Be sure to let the reception know when booking your appointment.

You can pay with cash, card and Inksane gift vouchers.

You can! Visit our shop online or buy one at the reception!

Inksane Cadeaubon

You can choose the amount you want to put on it yourself.

Gift vouchers are valid for 1 year (the appointment has to be made within 1 year, the tattoo can be placed afterwards).
During the pandemic we obviously don't pay attention to the expiration date. 😉

Je kan deze bon gebruiken voor tattoos en piercings, in al onze studio's.

There is no general price list. There are different tattoo artists: each of them has its own price rates and waiting period.

Some artists work with an hourly rate, others with a set price.
Our guest artists mostly have a day session price rate.

If you send us an e-mail with the tattoo you have in mind, we can give you a price estimation. In order to do this of course, we have to know what you want, which style, size, color or black and grey and body placement. If you don't know how big the tattoo should be or where to place it.. don't worry, our reception is happy to help you!

With the necessary information our reception can hook you up with the right artist and give you a price estimation. All this with a smile and free of charge.

For sure!

Every Inksane shop has a reception ready to answer your questions. You don't need an appointment to come in.

If it seems necessary to have a chat with the artist, we'll check if that is possible. If not, we will book in a short appointment to discuss your idea with the artist.

That depends on several factors:

  • The style (and thus the fitting artist. Every artist has their own price).
  • The size of your arm.
  • The complexity (or simplicity) of the design.
  • Color or black and grey.
  • Your skin type: We only know this when we start tattooing. Some skin types take the ink easily, for other skin types it can take up to 3 times more time before the skin takes the ink well.

A couple of ground rules:

  • expect around 4 sessions with styles such as biomech subgenres, scripting and other classic allround.
  • 5 to 7 sessions with black and grey photorealism.
  • 9 sessions for full color realism.

Our reception is professionally trained in estimating the amount of sessions needed for any given tattoo.
If you mail us (or show us in person) your idea, we will ask the necessary questions in order to then point you towards one or more artists and give you an estimation of the price and waiting time.

A day session with the same tattoo artist has the same price, whether it's color or black and grey.
An artist specialized in color is not more expensive than an artist specialized in black and grey.

Though black and grey tattoos go faster, so you will see more result after one day session.

Fun fact: our realism artists almost always prefer to do full-color 🙂

Yes, when booking an appointment we ask to pay a deposit.
With a guest artist that's mostly around 150 euro.

If you book in via e-mail , you will receive an automatic e-mail with a payment button.
Via this button you will go to our deposit section and you can pay online.

If you book in via the reception, you will have to pay the deposit in the shop. This is possible with cash, card or an Inksane gift voucher.

You may bring maximum 1 person to your appointment.

If you are booked for a day session, we do not recommend you bring anyone along. It will be a long day for your partner.

Regular artists are our Belgian (local) tattoo artists, that are in the shop every day.
Most of the time these artists are trained by us. They also speak (most of them) Dutch.

Guest artists, on the other hand, are highly skilled artists that we select from all over the world.
They almost never speak Dutch, but most of them can speak English.

A guest artist is only here for a limited period. For example 3 weeks.
95% of our guest artists return on a regular basis, so you can book in bigger projects with them and spread that over a longer time period.

If you don't show up to your appointment, your deposit will be lost.

This is also the case when you cancel less than two business days before your appointment.

Guest artists are only here for a limited time, and their Inksane schedule has been fixed for a while. They count on you to show up to the appointment, since it is not possible for them to find another client last minute.

When did you cancel? 

  • No show = deposit lost.
  • Cancelling less than two business days before (business days = Tuesday until Saturday) = deposit lost.
  • Cancelling more than two business days in advance (business days = Tuesday until Saturday) = deposit stays.

What if you cancelled on time? 

  • You can leave the deposit in our system until you book in again or you can receive it back as a gift voucher. The gift voucher doesn't mention a name so you can give it away as well.
  • If you book in again immediately after moving the appointment, we will transfer your deposit.
  • If you change from Inksane shop or Inksane artist, your deposit stays valid.

A deposit is never refunded in cash or by bank transfer.

This, again, is different for every artist, but here are some ground rules:

  • The session starts at 11h.
  • daarna wordt er ongeveer een uur besteed aan het overleg, design, anatomie, de stencil plaatsen, booth opzetten ...
  • After that, your tattoo artist will continue until your design is ready. This could be at 15.00h but this could also be at 18.00h.
  • So don't plan your day in a way that you need to be home at a specific hour.

The hour at which your session is finished does not affect the price. Your price is a fixed daily price, and serves to finish that day's design. Some clients' skin absorbs ink easily, so we finish quickly, but it may as well be the other way around.

Some of our artists do cover-ups, some do not.

If you want a cover-up, say this from the start.

Most artists can cover a small tattoo with a much larger design. That being said, we have 2 cover-up specialists available: if your old tattoo took up your entire upper arm, your new tattoo obviously can't be much bigger. Our specialist will show you what is possible.

What you need to know about cover-up tattoos

  • A cover-up is always darker than your original tattoo.
  • You cannot use light elements or styles to cover (for example a portrait or a rose).
  • Give your artist as much freedom as possible. This way you will get the best result.
  • Ideally you laser your old tattoo a couple of times. The tattoo doesn't need to be gone completely but if the tattoo is already a little bit lighter, a lot of new possibilities open up for your new design. 

Are you looking for a good tattoo laser company? Ask our reception.

Ja, maar daarvoor moeten we je oude tattoo eerst zien. Via duidelijke foto's als je via mail wil inboeken, of nog beter als je in de shop langskomt.
Onze receptie zal dan inschatten welke Inksane-artist hiervoor geschikt is.

If your tattoo is still fresh, it is important that your skin doet not get too moist.
Moist skin holds less ink, resulting in a faded tattoo.

Bathing, swimming, sauna, sweating, though work outs... they make your skin soft and moist. So we recommend you do not practice any of said activities before your tattoo is fully healed.

We recommend about 3 weeks of carefully taking care of your new tattoo.

No: we do not recommend you go out sunbathing. Not only during the first weeks after your tattoo, but also afterwards: a tattoo is only fully healed after 3 months.

Een tattoo is daarbij gebaseerd op contrast. Het lichtste deel van je tattoo is je huidskleur. Het donkerste deel is de zwartste inkt. Als je vaak gaat zonnebaden, wordt je huid dus donkerder, en daarmee ook het lichtste deel van je tattoo. Hierdoor hou je minder contrast over, en wordt je tattoo minder 'leesbaar'.

Finally, long exposure to the sun can break down the tattoo pigment. You should pay attention to that for the rest of your life.

Dat maakt niet zo veel uit, zolang je de tattoo niet aan de zon blootstelt, niet gaat zwemmen ...
Je onderarm laten tatoeëren net voor je op reis vertrekt, is dus niet heel handig.

Getting a tattoo during the winter/autumn/spring makes more sense but that shouldn't hold you back from getting one in the summer.

No.

There isn't a direct side effect between tattooing and a pregnancy but it's better to not take any risks during this period.

Een hele dag de pijn verbijten haalt ook je immuunsysteem wat naar beneden. Je zal moe zijn na zo'n sessie (zwanger of niet 😉 ).
You want to avoid that, because you'll need as much energy as you can get a hold of in order to take care of your baby.

Of course! We have a webshop with high-end piercing jewelry. You can also book an appointment online to get pierced.

Dit kan in elk van onze drie studio's (Roeselare, Sint-Niklaas, Brussel).
