In this revealing interview, discover how he transformed his passion for drawing into stunning works of watercolor ink that adorn the bodies of many around the globe. Explore with him his design process and technique while hearing tales from early life in Brazil – an inspiring story not to be missed!
Early Life and Interests
Born and raised in Brazil’s vibrant city of São Paulo, Baltazar was immersed in art from the start. His father worked as a draftsman for GM cars, giving him an early appreciation for skillful design. Young Baltazar quickly gravitated towards drawing and animation – his creative drive pushing him to perfect these disciplines at every turn. He eventually found something that allowed both artistic freedom and financial stability: watercolor tattooing. This union gave life to tattoos that are truly works of art!
Journey into water color Tattooing
A creative spirit since childhood, Baltazar felt a strong calling to turn his artistic talents into something tangible. With this in mind, he embarked on an endeavor that would use the canvas of skin as its medium: tattooing. Armed with knowledge from years spent honing illustration and drawing skills, he was uniquely suited for success; all it took was some practice and persistence before those natural capacities were fully adapted to ink-on-flesh artistry!
Design Process of a water color tattoo
With a creative vision and steady hand, Baltazar has crafted innovative tattoo designs for his clients. He dynamically combines sketching with watercolors on the skin – no drawing required! His unique style creates something special every time: lively colors that burst off the body coupled with light strokes of feathery lines bridge together to form individualized pieces of art tailored solely to each client.
Challenges and Satisfaction
Baltazar finds the art of tattooing to be both challenging and rewarding, as each canvas presents its own unique set of colors that must blend together in perfect harmony. The signature style he creates by paying attention to the natural musculature beneath enhances every design with a special touch for an even greater sense satisfaction when his work is done.
Evolution as an Artist and water color Tattooist
Ever striving to hone his craft, tattoo artist Baltazar finds a unique source of inspiration in the art world—cartoons, oil paintings, collages and street painting. By adding references from outside traditional tattoos into his designs he believes that there is no limit on how far an artist can evolve. He passes this wisdom onto those who are just starting out; encouraging them to pursue their own style with study and practice instead of relying solely upon imitation for success.
Baltazar's Favorite Disney Figure
Baltazar Paprocki Neto’s lifelong love of cartoons and animation has developed into an awe-inspiring art career as a tattooist. His commitment to refining his craft is evident in the water color creative designs we see from him today, and no figure expresses this better than Disney’s iconic Captain Hook – chosen by Baltazer himself when asked about his favorite character!
