Hello from Brazil

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my name is Daniel Ladeira, I am 34 years old and it's been just about 5 months i began tattoing and oppened my own studio.

I'm sorry if my english is not that good but i'll give my best here.

I aways liked to paint and draw since I was a kid, and that kept me alive so far in financial and spiritual way.

Untill the beginning of 2013 I was into video business, editing, filming and into visual graphic designs but than I decided to go back to may natural that is designing, and loved the ideia of tatooing. I have some friends that are great tattooist who I am thankfull everyday for the help and patiencie of sharing their experiences with me. But since I decided becoming a tattooist what I do most is study, practice and go after information to get better everyday. Reading books, websites, youtube videos, talking to other tattooists, attending workshops and I believe it would help a lot to join a forum. So here I am.

I hope I'll be able to share information, to give some and get some.

Thank's, peace!

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on having your own studio. Out of curiosity, who do you have as a mentor? I'm hoping you have a more experienced tattooer with you there? If not you should seriously consider hiring one. Flying blind is a terrible way to start and bad habits, purely out of lack of training, are hard to break.

Expect to get some heat here for opening your own place after tattooing 5 months and I would agree that it's not a great idea without more experience. To keep on a positive note I must say your English seems to be doing fine.

    • I went to the original post and pointed out the misspelling. They took the post down and said they were warning me not to reshare it. Yikes. Hope you can get the misspelling fixed somehow, OP. Oh, lord. Now the poor tattoo artist is threatening me with a lawyer. Even though I used her original caption and tagged her in it. 🤣
    • Is that word supposed to be whisper? I hope I am just reading it incorrectly ... 😬
    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
