that second to last one is just an outline, he`s trying to cover up the first one. that`s how big tats start, outlines, n progress to big ones. you can`t to a full big one in one day lol

They`re not as bad as some of the ones my seveteen year old uncle drew on himself. Know what I asked him when he showed me? "Are you brain damaged?"

#9 Isn`t a bad tattoo - he is getting ready to get it covered up. He`s in the shop getting it done, the purple ink is the outline they apply before you get inked, tards.

yeah, pig skin is usually the practice canvas since it is rather cheap. But just as in any art field, there are good artists..... and bad. Really bad.

oh boy. these are bad.
they probably weren`t done by real tattoo artists.
to answer the question:
to become a tattoo artist, most of them find an apprenticeship, although some are self taught.
they start off by practicing the drawings, then by tattooing it on fake skin or pigskin. when they are ready they need to tattoo something on themselves. next often, they tattoo on friends for free to build a portfolio or just to practice and to show they boss. after they`ve had all that practice and have the feel for real skin they are allowed to tattoo paying customers.

I`ve always wondered how tattoo artists practice. I mean, the guy who gets the artist`s FIRST tattoo...do they ever even know it? Hrm.


I believe the practice on pigs and things.

"...and the second to last one is the best. "

The blue on that one is the stencil for that artist to follow. Its going to be a cover up. Hopefully done much better then whats under it. I would like to see the final results.

ok whats the point of a tattoo? i once asked one of my classmates," hey i heard you got a tattoo!" he said, " yea but its bleeding kinda bad" i then asked. " so....what else can it do?" he replied with, " i dunno" then i asked the dire question," how much did it cost? ( it was a fairy large tattoo on his chest.)", he sai. " like 100 bucks".....thats when i proceeded to laugh at him.

It`s a moderately good tattoo, with a stencil of a tattoo he`s going to use to cover up the old tattoo with. :P

If you get a tattoo because your friends are getting them. Than dont. Dont waste your time or the artist`s time.

If you want a Tattoo of something funny and humourous. Get a temp one.

Dont get names. Dont get faces of people you know. Cause it will doom your relationship. Seriously.

I know what you mean Raccoon. I still think a tattoo is a beautiful way of expressing and remembering stuff that is significant to you. I, have grown to dislike my 3 tattoos.

One of them is an armband, unfinished because the artist was tired and said let`s finish it later...which he never did because the design doesn`t match up at the end... I asked him prior to starting if it was going to match and he assured me it would....liar. He did a fantastic job on the 3/4 he did, but I will get it finished by someone who takes their work a little more seriously.

Batmanners, I like my tattoos, and I always will. I put a lot of time, thought, love and effort into each of my designs, and each one has an important meaning to me. That`s all that matters. I don`t really care if other people have tattoos. None of them have the same ones I do, because I designed mine myself, and I can rest assured no one else will have the same ones I have.

Besides, just because your "buddy" doesn`t like them because so many people have them doesn`t make you a "sheep."

A friend of mine pointed out something quite interesting to me the other day. I asked him when he was going to get a tattoo, and he told me it lost it`s appeal when he realized that everybody has tattoos, and it`s more original to have no tattoos and/or piercings than trying to be original, and then I felt like a sheep....but I got mine in my stoner days, and they are quite stupid now that I think about it.

Neagle:

"The new design, in Purple/blue looks like it will be top notch."

Um - you have never had a tat, huh? When you get a tattoo - they put your design on a type of wax paper and then put that on to your body - tracing it with a blue/purple pen. Then they use the needle to follow that so they don`t fu*k up. . . so yeah. . .

One of my friends, Mike Wills, committed suicide. Another one of my friends, who was Mike`s best friend, got a HUGE tattoo of Mike`s signature on his forearm. We all cried about it, because it was so touching. What we didn`t take into account, was that Mike was always drunk and/or high, so his signature looked like a bunch of squiggly lines.
