    Hello from PA!

    Hello Everyone!! My name is Azure. I reside in PA. It has been a long standing dream of mine to get into the Art of Tattooing as it always fascinated me but it wasn't until recently I decided to really put myself into this task. I've been reading books about the Art of Tattooing. Anything from Tattoo Guns to Sterilazation is covered. If anyone has any advise for what books to read or is willing to share some knowledge, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm in the beginning process of learning about the Tattoo Gun and how it works, how to put it together, the different components that make up a tattoo gun, etc. What I'm looking on focusing on next are all the different styles of Tattooing. Being as I'm just a beginner I don't want to jump right in and buy supplies until I feel I have adequate knowledge of what I'm doing. I would like to note that if and when I do purchase a Tattoo Gun that I wl be strictly working on faux skin until I've gotten an apprenticeship and my Mentor has given me the okay. Speaking of Tattoo Guns, what would you suggest for a beginner such as myself?

    Artist/Book Suggestions??

    Hi Everyone! So I'm new to the forum and amateur when it comes to making designs for tattoos. I know some basic styles like Traditional, New School, Trib, etc. I want to learn more about these styles and learn about other styles that I may not have heard of. Any suggestions would be great as I'd love to expand my knowledge on Tattoo Design.
  4. Hi there, I am from good old Germany but I don't want to live here... Anyhow, i have a few tattoos and some of them really bad and I want to improve them as soon as I am able to. That was basically the main reason why I got me a tattoo machine many of you probably don't like, but not many had their hands on. The lacenano. I chose this machine because I think it is way more direct to use. It just seems logic to me. I'm an engineer - we tend to think different. Have already tried a bit on bananas and pigskin from the belly and also on myself with white ink. I have a private mentor who can tell me a little bit and answer my questions but since here is no tattoo parlour in this town or anywhere close by I cannot make a real apprenticeship. I learned a lot about important hygiene, when working in the medical field, so I dare to say that I'm pretty confident about not getting cross-contamination. Here is a small piece I did on myself: White devil heart Complete I hope to get a lot of input, already red through so many helpful threads - this forum is great. Best wishes, Sunny

    New To The Forum

    Hey, So as you've probably guessed from the title, I'm new to the forum. I'm currently in the process of building up a portfolio in order to hopefully find a tattoo apprenticeship so have joined the forum to gain some advice and feedback on my work and to help me along my road to successfully building this career. I enjoy doing a range of different styles, from traditional to portraiture to pointillism and I'd love to get to know others on the forum and see the work that you're doing yourselves and just hear what you have to say. I'm from Suffolk in the UK so it would also be great to get to know people from near me as well. Thank you for reading
  6. Hello, everyone. I am a 20-year-old from Queens, Nyc. I am looking to get a 3/4 sleeve black and gray here in NYC and would love any advice and suggestions I could get on potential artists. An artist that I have been very interested in is Oscar Akermo from Bang Bang. I appreciate any help or advice since I am completely ignorant in the Tattoo world.
  7. Hi - Just trying out the site and checking out the free areas before deciding whether to purchase a membership. I've noticed the forums appear to be mainly geared towards tattoo artists - which is awesome, however, I am only a tattoo enthusiast/customer. I'm currently planning out some new tattoos I want to eventually get, and I have some questions regarding starting a sleeve, etc. I wasn't sure if any of the members would be willing or interesting in giving me opinons or helping me with those types of questions. So, I'm just posting here for now - and any feedback would be appreciated. I don't want to bother or annoy anyone with my silly, newbie questions. PS - Happy St. Patrick's Day!
