      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. Gday From Melbourne

    Just wanted to say hi and welcome back.
  2. Here's hoping the issues can be resolved... This is the only site I know of that openly talks about tattoo techniques without the standard reply of "go get an apprenticeship" or "ask your mentor".
  3. Daily Doodle Anyone?

    Both of these are repaints, trying to get more practice with FW inks... i`m pleased with the skull.... feel free to rip em apart and give feedback and pointers, i`m here to learn
  4. Purchasing Membership

    It's more for access to the archives and woodshed topics... I'm new to the game and want to read up and learn as much as I can.
  5. Purchasing Membership

    Same issue as OP, any help appreciated.
  6. Hello Everybody

    Yeah, i`m not clicking that link... Just a suggestion, but could you maybe post pics into the topic rather than a web address?
  7. Hey Hey Hey

    Throw up some stuff, look forward to seeing it... i`m a huge fan of trad designs.
  8. I kinda want the tigers head bigger.. but since you`re not gonna change anything my post is redundant.
  9. Daily Doodle Anyone?

    I guess this will go in here, i`m new to drawing/watercolor, i know there are a few mistakes in the piece but i hope to learn from them....
  10. Some Might Be Interested ......

    Cant get enough of this guy. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Traditional Panther

    I have a few issues with this... the big one being the head, why does the panther have a mane?? the head is all wrong it looks more panther/werewolf second i think the whole body/legs should be a bit thicker.** i`m just nit-picking now but the outside of tail looks a little rough - smooth curves here Other than that the colour/shading is spot on. **p.s that`s just my personal view and art is subjective.....
  12. Gold Effect

    This any good to you? http://coreldesigner.wordpress.com/2008/11/09/get-the-midas-touch-create-a-gold-text-effect/
  13. Deadlift A Horse

    It might have been a Turkish Get Up (tgu) I have no crit on the design, i like it.
  14. Couple Of Recent Ones

    Then i retract my last post
  15. Couple Of Recent Ones

    double post
  16. Couple Of Recent Ones

    Good work. I have one crit tho, the left side wing looks unfinished on the last layer of feathers and my eye keep getting drawn the the second feather down because the rest overlap except that one, is there more time to be spend on this area?
  17. Diamond

    You tattoed this on another person and i`m the one being rude?? Give your "clients" the respect they deserve and dont view them as a piece of practice skin.... as i said before 1.sketch, 2.line work, 3.shading, 4.colour..... and only when its good enough in all previous steps tattoo. You want an honest crit? Not one line is straight, its not symmetrical... its lopsided, and the shading is uneven. There is a reason why there are millions of pieces of flash... to practice on paper first, non of this free hand what was in my minds-eye shit.
  18. Diamond

    Ok, post a drawing, anything you like. You wanted to do something strange.... and a diamond with wonky lines, non-symmetrical and uneven shading is what popped into your head? I could maybe get onboard if the idea was a diamond made of ice-cream melting..... Just because your not charging and you have seen worse does not make it ok to fuck people up.
  19. Diamond

    This poor bastard needs to walk around with that till he gets it covered.... i really dont know what to say except "Do not tattoo another person!" Have you ever drawn a diamond before? (serious question) I hate to be a dick but this is bad. Try this, google "tattoo diamond" and redraw some of the pics that are there. Practice on paper (not skin)...1.sketch, 2.line work, 3.shading, 4.colour.... only when the first step is spot on progress to the next step.
  20. Another Head On The Wall

    Mikey..... No idea who he is, but i like it.
  21. Well Hello...

    Hi guys, i`m a new member here and just wanted to say hello. About me, i`m a 30yr old guy from Glasgow with an interest in drawing... at the moment i only want to do flash pieces. My drawing is no where near good enough to even consider thinking about an apprenticeship. I`ve been lurking the Art class for the past while and wow there is a high level of skill around here. I hope to be putting some flasg/drawing up for crit soon.
  22. Incredible Speed Dragon Painting...

    Great vid. Similar technique used here for the scales...
  23. I just ordered the FW Primary Colours set. Should be a nice little starter for me... 1. lemon yellow 2. process magenta 3. process cyan 4. sepia 5. emerald green 6. scarlet It was ~£18 from amazon. I`m looking forward to doing some little flash pieces to hang on the walls in my man-cave
