Baris Yesilbas - Watercolor Tattoo Artist

The Visionary Behind Watercolor Gaming Tattoos

Greetings, fellow tattoo enthusiasts and gaming aficionados! I'm Baris Yesilbas Watercolor Tattoo Artist, the founder and visionary behind The Base NYC Tattoo Studio, where we merge the realms of gaming and tattooing to create unparalleled masterpieces on canvas – the human body.


A Lifelong Passion for Pixel Art and Video Games

From a young age, I found myself captivated by the world of video games, immersing myself in pixelated adventures that ignited my imagination. Little did I know that this passion would one day become the driving force behind my unique approach to tattooing. As I delved deeper into the art form, I realized that the vibrant and expressive nature of watercolor paintings could breathe new life into my gaming-inspired designs.

My journey as a tattoo artist began with a deep appreciation for the intricate details and dynamic movements that define the gaming world. I spent countless hours studying the intricacies of pixel art, mesmerized by the way each tiny square came together to form larger-than-life characters and environments. It was this fascination that inspired me to push the boundaries of traditional tattooing, infusing my work with the fluidity and depth of watercolor techniques.

Blending Worlds: Watercolor Meets Pixelated Designs

Through meticulous attention to detail and a dedication to mastering the art of watercolor tattooing, I developed a signature style that seamlessly blends the pixelated essence of gaming with the organic, free-flowing nature of watercolor. Each design I create is a labor of love, a harmonious fusion of two worlds that might seem disparate at first glance but ultimately come together in a symphony of color, movement, and storytelling.

A Meticulous Approach to Artistic Excellence

Whether I'm immortalizing a beloved video game character, recreating an iconic scene from a classic title, or capturing the essence of a gaming universe, my approach is guided by a deep respect for the source material and a relentless pursuit of artistic excellence. I meticulously study the color palettes, the lighting, and the emotional resonance of the subject matter, ensuring that every stroke of my brush translates seamlessly onto the canvas of skin.

The Journey of Creating Watercolor Gaming Tattoos

The process of creating a watercolor gaming tattoo is a journey in itself, one that requires unwavering focus, patience, and a keen understanding of both mediums. I begin by laying the foundations with precise linework, capturing the essence of the pixelated elements. From there, I carefully build layers of watercolor, allowing the pigments to blend and flow, creating depth and dimension that breathe life into the design.

Infusing Movement and Energy into Tattoo Art

What truly sets my work apart, however, is the way I incorporate the unique attributes of watercolor into my gaming-inspired pieces. Through techniques like splattering, dripping, and deliberate brushstrokes, I infuse each design with a sense of movement and energy that reflects the dynamic nature of gaming itself. Every tattoo becomes a living, breathing homage to the worlds we love, capturing the thrill and excitement of virtual adventures in a permanent, wearable form.

Connecting Through Shared Passions and Stories

Beyond the technical mastery of my craft, what fuels my passion is the opportunity to connect with fellow gaming enthusiasts on a deeply personal level. Each tattoo is not merely a piece of art but a story, a tribute to the narratives and characters that have shaped our lives and ignited our imaginations. It's a privilege to collaborate with clients, to listen to their gaming experiences, and to translate those cherished memories into lasting works of art that they can proudly display on their bodies.
