Hi there I have some questions

Recommended Posts

Hi there I'm getting ready to get my first tatoo of many and I I have some concerns about the person doing the job at the moment the guy I'm getting the tattoo from doesn't have his own shop so he's doing it out of an RV is there anything I should look out for ?

unless this is a joke,

personally for me, a guy doing tattoos out of an RV would be a red flag.

Especially for a first tattoo,I would do some more research of artists that you would like to get work from.

I would look at established busy shops.

You should look out for artists working out of an RV!

You don't want to gamble a lifetime of visual regret (never mind the possibility of infection, etc) based on saving a few dollars. You're going to wear the results for a lifetime.

I wouldn't even know where to start. Go find an actual brick and mortar shop with professional tattoo artists that have verifiable experience and a portfolio that you can look at and can't drive off when you get the worst tattoo ever. Do some research, this is such a terrible idea I can't believe it's not a prank.

Here's what you'll wind up with:

This is definitely not a joke but shortly after I  posted this I contacted a shop near the shop he used to work at and found out he does amazing work and just don't have the ability to be in an actual shop yet due to where he lives  I do appreciate all the advice  yall rock if I don't see a sketch of the tatoo I am wanting I won't he going

See video for what happens when someone tattoos you in an RV - or in this case a car.

It's the acceleration, corners and braking that usually cause the issues.

It may be possible on a long stretch of highway - but still not usually recommended.

skip to 35 seconds in for the educational bit.

    • Update - awesome time in Belgium and France ! Got to meet my LST penpal danceswithferrets in-person. Him and his wife showed me a wonderful time in Leuven and we had a really awesome tattoo exchange, including this photo op:   I enjoyed Belgian sites and people (and beer!) so much that I headed back to Bruxelles after the Southern France wedding for my remaining days. Met some cool people by chance (one of which was a tattooist) within 5 minutes of leaving my airbnb...got this gothic skull blastover made by my new pal Taul Tattoo at his Atome22 Studio:   And spent my last day in Bruxelles at the world class Purple Sun Tattoo: Hand poked finger dangler by Indy Voet   and this incredibly powerful tattoo from Jean-Philippe Burton   As an added bonus I got to see the Wim Delvoye exhibit at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts Belgium and see Jamie the tattooed pig from Art Farm and the Cloaca shit machine !   Very grateful for the experiences the universe and tattoo-karma provided me throughout this trip. It was a spiritual awakening of sorts. Highly recommend Bruxelles and Belgium, I can't wait to go back 🙂  
    • ah I see; yeah, then the arm or calf could work well: the upper calf muscle would work for the circular portion.
    • Actually it won't be really circular.
