This site is no substitute for a formal apprenticeship

Disclaimer: This site is not a substitute for a professional apprenticeship with a licensed tattoo studio. Nor is this site a definitive source for learning the art or trade of tattooing. An apprenticeship is the ONLY universally accepted way to learn proper safety practices and sound technique.

While we welcome members of all levels, we STRONGLY advocate staying away from skin until you've received formal training from someone who works in the field. Hell, even hair stylists must complete over a year of courses, pass a state health board exam, and apprentice under a professional studio before earning a chair.

The trade of tattooing has a rich history and traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. If you respect the art, please show your respects by learning the right way.

That being said, tattooing is not something that should be taken lightly. Not only is your work permanent, but if safe practices are not followed, there is the possibility of contamination and infection (and we mean the kind of diseases that really f*ck up your life). All opinions on this site are solely those of the author/member posting, and we accept no responsibility or fault for any damage or undesired consequences encountered by those following the guidance of ANY member of this board. We highly recommend finding multiple sources when seeking information of ANY KIND. When in doubt, go to your local tattoo parlor and get professional advice from a reputable artist.
