"How Does it Feel to be the Best Tattooer in the World?"

Recommended Posts

I am a musician, a saxophonist actually. The absolute undisputed living (at the time) saxophonist Mike Brecker was asked "How Does it Feel to be the Best Saxophonist in the World"? His response was "I don't know go ask Jerry Bergonzi (another great Jazz saxophonist)." Mike was always very self-aware and humble.

So if YOU as a tattooer were asked a similar question. How would you respond? Who would YOU place above yourself as a source of inspiration? Even if it's a specific genre that you want to be better at?

..."I don't know, go ask ________________?"

I'm definitely not even anywhere NEAR great. But I read an interview once where a musician said "it took me a long time to realize that you don't WIN at playing guitar. You just have fun." I think the same thing applies to tattooing as well. I don't believe that you "win" at tattooing. You can grow. You can learn. And you can have fun too.

Oh , I see! Sorry, I misunderstood. I would say that every artist I talk with or interact with is an inspiration. People are always doing things very differently from each other. I don't know if I could pin-point one above the rest. If I really HAD to pick one, it would be Dj Minor. He's a very talented artist and he's a great dude too!

    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
    • If it is scarring what else could it be? Could it be that the ink is too thick ??
    • Laser removal is not an eraser. You'd still faintly see the tattoo. If it is scarring, then yes, you'd still see the scar, too.
