About Our Artwork
It is the aim of Flash2xs.com, LLC to provide to our customers the largest, most diverse selection of tattoo designs available from any single source in the world, and assure that each design we sell is Tattoo Friendly™ (evaluated and optimized for use as tattoo reference). Fulfilling this goal enables TattooFinder.com visitors to find their perfect tattoo design(s) and have their tattoo vision realized. It also allows licensors and business partners to find and utilize our high quality artwork to the fullest extent for many other purposes.
The story of our artwork begins with the talented tattoo flash artists we work with (currently over 100) from all across the globe. Flash2xs.com, LLC gets dozens of applications per month from those interested in becoming an artist. We carefully evaluate every application, but only a few become “signed” artists. Some of our artists have world renowned reputations in the tattoo industry, and others are “up-and-coming” artists whose natural talents bring new styles and trends. What all of them have in common are the skills to create impactful, Tattoo Friendly artwork on a variety of topics while maintaining their own unique style and allure.
When an artist is first signed with us, it doesn't mean all of their artwork immediately becomes a part of our design library. As new artwork is regularly submitted (either for sale or licensing) to our Acquisitions department, all designs and corresponding stencils go through a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that both meet our standards for use as high quality tattoo reference. Stencils in particular are scrutinized for artistic consistency and accuracy to their corresponding design.
Once we decide to take on new artwork, it is scanned or converted to high resolution digital images by our Production department. All of the designs and stencils we offer are digitally cleaned to insure a high quality printout for our customers. This cleaning process includes removing backgrounds and blemishes, as well as optimizing color balances, contrast, saturation and addressing any other aesthetics that may have been distorted from the artist’s original creation.
Once suitable as the perfect Tattoo Friendly™ reference, the files are uploaded to our database and carefully tagged and indexed based off their qualities. Most of these designs subsequently appear on the TattooFinder.com website where they can be viewed by thousands of people each day and purchased as someone’s perfect tattoo design!
