nice work. How long you been tattooin' if you dont mind me askin? Im tryin to gain some insight as Im wantin to try my hand at tattooin but have limited knowledge as most artists i approach havnt been that forth-comin with any helpful advice or tips? Thanks in advance for any pointers you may have, and again, great work.
Well first and foremost ... Half to most artist are fucking douche bags.. They all have an ego behind their art work... But like myself some of us have pride in there work .. And I would honestly do somethings Forr free cause I love the fact that I can put my art under someones skin forever .. That's what drives me to do more and better .... So with that Bit of info No one will give u pointers without hoping off there high horse which isn't probable... So to ask ... What would u like to know .. Ive been tattooing for longer then I've been legaly allowed to drink haha for about 5-6 years give or take... And I've been all over from nyc to upstate NY out to canada .. But let me know what u wanna know man .. Would be awsome to help out a fellow artist !!
aah dude its exactly those reasons I wanna give it a go? The buzz I get when people hang my pictures on their walls more than justifies the time I spend drawin the piece, or the little money I sometimes make. To be honest, I know very little as Ive only just acquired my machine, needles, spare barrels etc, I still need to get Inks (and a transformer box n pedal but thats not an issue) only ive been told to avoid japanese branded inks as they may contain lead? Dunno if this is true or not but its left me puzzled which to get? My thinking is im best practising first but have conflictin ideas off people like, "tattoo skins"? pork skin? myself? or just jump straight in on some willing guinea pig!? lol Ive watched numerous videos on youtube for how-to-do this n that and ive learned a lot from it but to actually get 1st hand tips? Well, your my first, thanks man. 1 more thing, when workin in colour, do i work away from the outline or upto the outline? I hope this makes sense? lol Thanks for your time mate and again, great artwork.
