Tatanium2012 Posted October 29, 2012 Share Posted October 29, 2012 I had become aware of TAU (Tattoo Artist United) awhile back after seeing a post of one the videos educating the public about scratchers. I was intrigued by this because it is something I have thought about needing to happen for sometime now. In my area in america scratchers are a common issue, and i assume it's an issue in other parts of the world aswell. It gets old dealig with folks coming in with scratcher work along with the scratcher perspective of tattooing. The thing i hate the most is best explained by an example......the other day a guy walks in asking a price on a portrait. After telling him he responded with "seriously!? I got this portrait of my mom from my brother doing it with a homemade gun on his kitchen table and it only cost me a 12pack of beer and 4 packs of cigarettes." As he was saying this he was showing me the most cartoon looking face with no visible shading and nasty looking linework. That helped me realize more of how bad scratching has got, when people think that crap is good quality, and dont understand why studios who got overhead and had dedicated there lives to putting out quality work are charging more than the value of beer and cigarettes. What are your opinions on TAU and/or scratchers in general? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
