Tattooing throat advice

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I've been thinking about difficult areas of the body to tattoo and wonder if anyone had any advice? I think the throat is one of the hardest as the head and shoulders make it difficult to reach and it's hard to stretch. Does anyone have any tricks or tips to share about tattooing the throat?

Dan... The best technique I have seen that makes it easier due to gravity working is... massage table lay client down with head hanging off the edge of table... use the end as a neck pillow and let the head hang naturally down towards the ground, less trying to stretch with hands, more stretch by using gravity... courtesy of Ricardo.

PS... Richard pointed out what I forgot... The use of a knee to support the back or top of the head so it's not just hanging there the entire time. Let your knee down as you go to pull a line, the use of gravity and a little hand stretch makes it a good balance he says...
