Do all artists use a transfer sheet??

Recommended Posts

So I was just wondering if all tattoo artists ( generally speaking that is) use a transfer sheet. I am talking about how the artists usually just trace some purple outline that is put around the part of the body that you want to get tattooed  ( sorry I'm a noobie I don't know what it's called) or do some artists just draw straight on the skin from scratch. Like for instance I'm getting my first tattoo in a few days and it's a CUSTOM shop so does that mean they don't use that kind of procedure orr?? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Custom just means they have designed something for you, and you aren't getting a piece of flash off the wall. Many use stencil transfers (my artist almost always does, but he sketches in other stuff around it, too), but it depends on the tattoo.

    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
    • I'll be there.  Hopefully all 3 days, but we'll see what happens.
