      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. Rose Flashwork

    Rushed through the first rose didn't look good at all. This time I slowed down took my time.

  4. Sublime Sun Lining

    This is a little older work but it's not really a flash style or tattoo work :/
  5. Sublime Sun Lining

    No I am just practicing right now. I don't normally draw roses either. I draw a lot of mushrooms and trippy things. Both the drawings have pushed me out of my comfort area of drawing and it clearly shows lol.

    This is the album cover

    Sublime Sun. For now just lining until I throw some colors on it. Any suggestions or see anything that needs attention before I stencil it. It's a decent size.
  8. Rose Flashwork

    Tried to fix it and basically fucked it all up. Think I am just going to have to start again completely with new rose.
  9. Rose Flashwork

    Right on. I'll work on shading it tonight and post another picture of a hopeful improvement lol
  10. Rose Flashwork

    First attempt at a rose type flash work. I really like a lot of Jack Rudys type flashwork. I used a picture of a rose from Google for reference and free handed it. Feedback please and thank you. Shroomy

    Hi I am new.. way too new lol but I have to start somewhere. I am Shroomy. I have a shit ton to learn skill. And accept it. I am 25 live in the middle of corn fields and woods in Indiana. I love art and science and I think tattooing requires both. I cant remeber a time when drawing was not a huge thing in my life. I have took a few drawing classes. I have been lurking the forum for a few days. I am working on / building my portfolio to try for an apprentiship.
  13. Holding the Machine

    I was practicing drawing with pencil and machine to get used to the weight of the machine and this thought occured. When holding your tattoo machine does it make a big difference in which fingers you use to hold your grip? Reason I ask is because most people use the first finger and thumb to pinch and the middle finger for support when they hold a pencil. I have read that the middle finger can help with making sure you keep the same depth while tattooing. When I hold a pencil I have always used my Ring finger. The pencil rest on my ring finger. Would this have any effect on tattooing abilities?
