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

    • I possibly wouldn't mind a small one, almost like a bracelet. But I'd be the type to get bummed if I ran out of skin room 😅😅😅
    • For me, exactly no on the eyeball tattoos. Blackout tattoos, if done well, are cool. Not for me but I can certainly appreciate (almost) any well done tattoo. 
    • The Ed Hardy show at the de Young museum is INCREDIBLE. I'm going back ASAP. Absolutely incredible. The exhibition catalog is on sale in the gift shop along with a bunch of other books like Beyond Skin and Kahlil's volume of Drawings for Tattoos. Bring your whole paycheck.
