Hey guys, new here and looking to learn

Recommended Posts

First off, a bit about myself.  I'm 26, looking to get into tattooing.  I've been studying art seriously for a bit over a year now.  Messed around for a few years before that, learning how to draw portraits and basically draw what I see,  but with no real consistent study or discipline.  I'm looking to supplement my course load with some tattooing specifics so I'm not a complete noob when I start getting out there.    I have a shitty machine (never going to use it, don't worry) that I've played around with while reading a book to get familiar with the machine.  Did a bit of study on felt, but I don't want to learn any bad habits so for the time being I'm just focusing on the art side of it.

 

So that brings me here. I belong to another art community and it's incredibly helpful to have others critique work and help you grow as an artist, while pointing you towards valuable information when needed, but it's not related to tattoos at all.   Haven't spent much time looking around yet so I'm unsure if this is a good forum to find what I'm looking for,  maybe someone will be able to point me there.

This was just spurred on after spending a couple hours on another piece and getting a little tired of that path.  Drawing tattoos seems fresh and exciting. 

Cheers

    • QQ for you - how big is the Higg's piece? Would you be sitting for over 2 hours? I'd say if you really feel good and it's on your arm, I'd go for it but don't bullshit yourself on how good you THINK you feel. Be really honest with yourself. No sense in crashing yourself if you really don't think that you are up for it!
    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance.
