Advancements in tattooing

Recommended Posts

When most things become popular there always seems to be advancements in the technology. Companies see the opportunities and put money into R&D, even if it's not something they've done before.

It seems to me that tattooing is at what's probably the crest of its popularity and as such should be seeing some advancements. Is anyone doing this? Is there any improvements that can actually be made?

I realize it an age old tech, but just about everything can be improved.

There will likely be improvements in inks that make them less likely to migrate or fade. 

That's what got me thinking about the whole subject. Seems like there could be a way to do that... as long as it didn't make ink a thousand dollars a bottle.

I've heard a lot of people say that inks have improved a lot in the last few decades, so why not?

Rotaries are a thing now, and needle/tube combos that aren't much bigger than the end of your pinky and snap right on the end of some of the new wand style rotaries. Inks are definitely improved Eric Perfect talked about there being recipes with listerine in the ink mixture when someone first told them one of their recipes.

    • "I know this is hard but you need to try to get out of your head. It's a good tattoo!" what is hard?   Thanks for your comments.. they do help me, maybe i'm just overreacting right? it's just that im so picky .. and also i'm very obsessive... i have read that a lot of people go trough this after a tattoo.. cause it's a big commitment..
    • Roses have leaves. I have about a dozen different roses on my body and they all have leaves. Guarantee you that a rose tattoo without leaves would look unfinished.  Don't worry about what it looks like when you raise your arm. Seriously, a tattoo is on a living, bendy, moving part of your body.  And my motto, go big or go home. It's a great size and you can't tell that it is a coverup which is the primary thing. Your artist was right. I know this is hard but you need to try to get out of your head. It's a good tattoo!  
    • well the leaves .. i can't stop thinking "maybe it would look a lot better wiithout them" and also when i raised my arm the rose looks kinda deformed ... and i think it's so big..the tattoo artist said it would had to be this size cause it's a cover up.. but i keep thinking that maybe that wasnt the true.. i don't know....
