I’m thinking about becoming a tattoo artist and was wondering if there’s anyone on here who is one that wouldn’t mind if I asked a few questions (mostly about equipment)?
A friend of mine does hand poke–and gave me a whole crash course on how to do it–but I’m more interested in using a tattoo machine.
Because I’m self-conscious and over-thinking this post I’ll just come right out and say that my intention is to teach myself and not go through the usual method of finding an apprenticeship. This is something I’ve wanted to do since I finished my undergrad but could never actually break into the subculture enough in the places I lived in (and at the times I lived there) to actually befriend one of those wild horses in the dessert …Which is what it feels like when you’re an introvert, broke, and an outsider. Anyway, I’m done not being able to tattoo myself, so here begin-eth my journey.
