      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. Linework using brushes..

    Anybody here like to use a brush to complete linework? I have a long liner brush with is nice as well as a shorter one & have been playing around. I like the effect and was wondering if anybody uses brushes and if so could they offer any advice as to how the get a smoother line.. I am having trouble with curves, primarily. Thanks!
  2. hi everyone. i posted something like this before, but i asked for only cartoony and new school designs, however now i want to try realism/traditional tattoos. i have always failed at realism with anatomy, shading etc. can anyone give me ideas of stuff to sketch and draw to improve my realism? shading tips are useful too as i suck at placement. thank you all yes i am a bad artist, and very unprepared to learn tattooing, but bear with me.

Hiya, new to this website, drawing and tattooing but i have bagged myself an apprenticeship at Serenity Arts Tattoo in Eastham.. https://www.facebook.com/serenityartstattoo?ref=hl My boss is great and has helped me out loads!
