How does all this work?
As soon as you purchase, you will receive a link to download the product you have purchased. You can access the files immediately. We recommend downloading everything to a computer or Mac and using file transfer apps to organise the designs. We also include easy instructions with each purchase if you're not sure.
What can I expect to receive?
It depends which pack you have chosen to download. The designs are split up into separate folders:
- Design Originals
- Transparent Background versions
- PDF eBook
- AI Vector files (only available in the 200+ Pack)
How do I import into Procreate?
You will need to gather some designs into your iPads Photo Library.
After you have transferred the designs you want to work with to your iPad's photo library, open Procreate and start a new blank project - or open an existing project. You can import by pressing the spanner in the top left, then the + button, and choose to import from your photo library. I'd recommend using the transparent background versions for this, as this will place the black parts of the design on top of your own design as a layer. You can then resize and move around whilst still being able to see your design in the background.
What does the eBook look like?
The ebook is basically a book of all the designs within the pack you ordered. It's in PDF format and gives you full page, high quality versions of each design. Use it to help reference the designs you want to use - it has a handy index, along with full page views of each design (and how many of them look when inverted too.)
It can be printed, saved to iBooks or opened via PC/Mac - the book will show you large, high quality examples of every design included in the pack you purchased. You can refer to it to find the design you want, or to show clients and help them decide which design they prefer.
Opened with a mac:
There are two versions available to download in the 200+ pack. You can download both, or just one of them.
Compact version - File size is 1gb and the designs show the inverted versions on the same page.
Large Version - File size is 2gb, and the inverted versions of each design are full page (not split on the same page like the compact version.) The borders are also thinner. The book pictured above is the large version.
Both books are of the same high quality.
What file types do you sell?
The default format for our designs are in PNG format. The eBook is in PDF format. We also include all the AI vector files in the 200+ Pack and the Geometrica pack.
Can I have the designs in a different format?
Yes! We can convert to any format you like. Drop us an email or DM on instagram.
What if I need help?
We are incredibly friendly and we will be on hand to help you with every and any query you may have. Just email us or DM on instagram for quick replies.
I haven't received my download link yet..
Occasionally, emails can sometimes bounce back to us if you use your own email server. Not sure why this happens, but it is a rare occurrence. Common email clients such as gmail/yahoo etc we don't have any issues with (unless of course you entered the wrong email address...!) If you have't received your download link within ten minutes after purchase - please contact us via the email you used to purchase with, and we will send it to you manually. We are usually very quick with replying - provided we are not sleeping!
I really like a single design and I want it as my next tattoo...
We recommend discussing this with your tattoo artist before buying the design. Either screenshot or link them to your chosen pattern. If the artist is happy to go ahead, you should then purchase the design.
If you can't find the design sold separately, please contact us and we will make a new order up for you.
Do I need to credit you?
No. Once you have purchased the designs, you are free to tattoo them without referencing us. The rights for use are included in the download.
We are more than happy to be referenced of course, please tag us with your finished tattoos - we love to see the results. We won't use your image without asking permission first.
What software do you use?
All designs are made with Adobe Illustrator. Some of the designs in the Distort pack have been edited with Adobe Photoshop to get some effects, but all are initially made with Adobe Illustrator.
How do I make these patterns myself?
I am not afraid to provide as much help as I possibly can to artists who need help with Adobe Illustrator. I don’t charge for this, I am just happy to help. Currently, I don’t have any tutorials on how I make these designs, but if you already have a basic knowledge of pattern making on illustrator, I may be able to help you out with any questions or help if you get stuck with anything. Contact me via DM on Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do some of the previews not show up on my Dropbox app?
If you regularly use Dropbox to transfer images from device to device and you are seeing this message a lot where the design should be, it does not mean the file is broken or not there.
Dropbox does this due to the file size being too large to preview. To ensure it saves into your photo library, long press on the picture where the preview normally shows (it says ‘this file can’t be previewed’) and choose ‘save to library.’ The full size image will then be in your iPads photo library. You do not need to view it on a computer like the image unhelpfully tells you to!
