  1. Just buy talens rather than the shit like immortal then it will be one less thing to worry about 

    dont worry about  the "you cant use that for tattooing" brigade  as its been used for more years than ive been alive and im nearly 50

    but i would say without seeing or watching it wil probably be all 4 if im totally honest

  2. Unfortunatly not everything works as a tattoo 

    sorry but that needs a cover up and its going to be big and cost you a few sheckles



    you will have to learn to live with it 

    if its not finished then get it finished and see if you change your mind

  3. if no one had replied that would that have been wrong as well and people would then moan about that

    if you pick an artist to do the work shouldnt that be a question to take up with them

    whats going to happen is this 


    customer goes into shop and says a bloke on a forum says that should only take an hour so it should only cost  50£ 

    tattoo artist says 

    go to the bloke on the forum then and get it done for 50£ 

    customer says 

    well i cant coz hes on the forum innit

    i only wanna pay 50£ 

    tattoo artist says 

    well its gonna cost you 100 for me to do it 

    customer says 

    i aint paying 100£ i' ll get my mate to do it he says he charge me 40£

    tattoo artist says gon on fuck off and get it done by yuor mate 


    customer walks out door 

    6 months later 

    customer walks in and says 

    how much to cover this....

    tattoo artist now says 

    i remember you 

    200£ to cover that you fuckin idiot

    I'm also from the South East of England and am very curious..

    Make sure that if you're paying a few grand you get a contract drawn up of what you get for that money. How long the apprenticeship will be, how many hours a week etc. I've heard a few horror stories of people paying cash upfront for apprenticeships then getting fired after a few months!

    £2.5k is certainly a bargain compared to most other skilled trade qualifications, but do make sure you protect yourself. 

    To put it into perspective 

    tattooing is the only apprentiship i have ever known of where you pay to train 

    when i was 16  in19...cough****

    i was an apprentice electrician on the yts scheme and i got paid 27£ a week and had a rise every year of my training
