      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. Tattoo solidifier in shops

    I think you will need to goto the authority and ask them for clarification rather than just guess what it means thats what i would do just to make sure
  2. How to: perfect lines in one go?

    Thats kind of what i said.. if your mentor says you are ready then they think you are ready lol
  3. How to: perfect lines in one go?

    You should not be testing on a clients skin until you are proficient and that is when your mentor tells you!! lesson for today! for what reason does iit actually have anything to do with machine speed and hand speed ???
  4. Someone's got the painters in......... as i previously said no ink is approved by the FDA and the reason is its made up off too many base pigments with no regulations some have plastic in them!! black is just charcoal and vodka in some cases some are even made of car paints. there ya go...
  5. no ink is approved for tattooing according to the FDA
  6. Best thing you can do is keep them out of the sun but brand and type doesnt matter
  7. How to: perfect lines in one go?

    essentially the needle sticks out of the end and you gauge the depth the needles are going in. best way to do it when you know how to tattoo or you use the tip to guide the needle around so the needle is flush with the end of the tip and the tip is put against the skin and dragged around best way of you dont as you can set how deep the needles are going in and don't have to worry about blow outs
  8. Its a small gap why try to make it into one tattoo should leave some space between them anyway but as its your arm if you want chains then get chains
  9. There are different types of Flotation Equipment

  15. 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.
  16. Blowout??

    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
  17. Blowout??

    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.

    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
