Mark, I believe the concept is the same. :icon_lol: I believe it's using points instead of linear elements to create an 'artistic work'. Yes, it was a color blind test, just change the colors, same principle.
Didn't the surrealists or someone use the technique?
Seurat is the most famous for pointillism - his paintings are pretty big, and up close look like the tele used to look up close when it was all blue yellow and red dots. He was a post impressionist, they're the guys that came just before the surrealists.. late 19th century. He began the neo impressionist movement, but we're getting a bit A level art now! Really like it used in tattoos. Gives a nice tribley rusticy homemadey feel, which I really like..
I have done a few Mandala tattoos in all dot work. I use a 5rl and a 7rl. I start the dark areas with the 7 making the dots tighter then use the 5 for the lighter more spread out dots. This style takes allot more time then standard line and fill tattoos so if you are going to try this start small or make sure the person you are working with is able to site for a while.
