  1. Alot of the big names started out at home and they all say its a lot harder to do it that way and would suggest the correct route ask aaron cain, guy aitchison or bob tyrell how they started you can still tattoo from home legally in some places in the world just do it the right way and get registered.

    Megan an artist cant educate you on blowout rather they need to educate them selves about blow out blow out is easily avoided by someone who knows what they are doing

    Did you pass this information on to the artist? If you did then they are stupid to ignore if you didnt then thats bad on your part same as when people don't tell the artist they are on things like blood thinners and other drugs.

    New sleeve

    Looks good so far if the writing is a cover up id like to see how small the other piece was lol give the kudos to your artist say who they are
  8. To be honest its script so it can go where ever you want nothing challenging in it it all depends on size no good having a chest piece size on a foot if you get my drift ps dont get it dont on a "holiday" big mistake

    Tattoo Convention Help

    There really is no need to market to people who are tattooed the ways it is done is facebook instagram websites magazines and to my mind the best which is word of mouth no fancy analyst with graphs is going to mean shit to a pirate just shows someone has roo much time on their hands the market is so flooded now the only way to survive is be better than the next man in the street and that means putting out good ink not by putting up marketing bullshit in the window why pick tattooing anyway there is plenty of other business out there that would probably love all this white collar stuff
