Aspiring Apprentice Here..

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, first time poster here and aspiring tattoo apprentice. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this.. I haven't shown any of my work to any shops yet as I want to get better and come up with more complete pieces. Here are some images of my progress so far. Please offer criticism or tips. Thanks!

Perfectly reproduce classic images so many times that you can do exact renditions with your eyes closed. Then, aside from your portfolio, you'll be able to impress a potential mentor on the spot with just a pencil and piece of paper.

By "reproducing quality imagery", do you mean copying common designs such as daggers, skulls, hearts, ships etc..? Also, would this be okay to use in my portfolio? Thanks!

Find good reference, tattoo or non tattoo related and try and draw exactly what you see. That's a good starting point. Practice it as often as possible. If your drawing is close but looks off, don't fix it. Redraw it.

    • 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.
