      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  1. Dot Matrix Printer As A Stencil Maker?

    I have had great success with a 24 pin dot matrix. The 9 pin will produce a dotted stencil. 24 pin is the way to go. I use photoshop to edit and create the final line drawing. I have used two methods to print. Save as a GIF or print and scan and save as jpeg. (I use one computer, w/ scanner printer for this then save to jump drive and transfer to the computer with the dot matrix printer) Open the saved file using windows picture and fax viewer and print. Works like a charm! I removed the printer ribbon to print the stencil after printing a test page. You can adjust the pressure of the printer head if the stencil comes out too light. Hope this helps.
