Los Angeles, California January 26, 2007: With popular cultures recent interest in tattoo arts, its no surprise that the web has been inundated with various tattoo related sites. Perform a search in Google, and youll be amazed by variety of results. Some sites function as an introduction to a tattoo artist or studio, while there are some that gleam the web for pictures and stories surrounding tattoo culture. Other sites are merely portals hoping to make a quick buck off tattoo flash. However in my search, I happened to stumble across a tattoo blog that dares to offer the chronicle of two brothers learning to tattoo themselves. This should be good.
Ink Trails is a journal of two brothers, Jason and David who set out to learn how to tattoo while documenting the entire process. The blog starts out with the simple premise that one need not have a desire to tattoo professionally to work within the medium. According to comments posted on the site, a traditional tattoo apprenticeship can be very difficult to find, and can require the student to spend years working as a lackey before ever laying the needle to skin. Tattoo artists tend to be very territorial, as teaching an eager student their hard earned skills can create instant competition and are a liability to their main source of income. There is also those that see tattooing as a trade and therefore expect those interested in learning to be wholly committed to learning the craft as tradition has prescribed. If TLCs Miami Ink is any indication, the job of an apprentice can consist of little more than moping floors and answering phones for years before they are entrusted with the knowledge of the trade.
While the first few posts on the site document the trials of finding out what supplies they will need and how to operate the equipment, its the posts of their work that provide the most interesting reads. Filled with stories, pictures, and even video clips of each tattoo, Jason (the main author) documents the mistakes made and lessons learned with earnest voice and a remarkable clarity. One of their first tattoos on a friend even shows a video clip of the exact moment when David fudges a line While Im glad it wasnt me, its this kind of unflinching honesty that makes the site stand out from so many other sites trying to capitalize on the upsurge in popularity.
Surprisingly, in a little over three months, the work featured on the site has improved dramatically. Many of the new completed pieces actually have a rough, yet stylized traditional quality to them. Of the most recent, David finished a sailor tattoo based on a traditional flash design that looks authentic. They seem to be getting increasingly more comfortable with the tools and their work speaks to this fact.
While the brothers caution that they are not in the business of teaching anyone the right way to tattoo, they sure offer enough information to get the newcomer started. For any body interested in learning to tattoo, or just understanding more about what goes into the tattooing process, this site is an invaluable resource. Keep up the good work, fellas Ill definitely be a regular readera,and i see this tatto is hot,
After writing so many tattoo posts I thought there can be no new way to get inked but seems tattoo artists have lots more new ideas. Now look at the picture above. Do you think the lizard on the back of this girl is real one? If yes, then you’re wrong. It’s a cool 3D tattoo (tattoo in three dimensions). No doubt, body modification has gone too far and I wonder what tattoo artists will come up with next!
There are many ways to decorate the human body, including piercing, tattooing, branding, and sculpturing. These forms of body art are becoming more popular. Tattooing can be done in several ways, by a friend using a sharp object like a razor or knife
by a studio artist using a tattoo machine.
Tattoos are meant to be permanent. Although tattoos can sometimes be removed, the process is painful, long, expensive, and does not always work. Look out for the following when you go into a tattoo parlor:
1. Patron (client) rights must be display.
2. Gloves must be worn by the artist when tattooing.
3. Needles and tubes must be sterile. A new container of ink is used for each patron and needles must be sterile and used only on you.
4. There should be hand-washing facilities with running water readily available for the artist to use.
5. Appropriate disinfectants should be used to clean surfaces where there has been (or might have been) blood.
Tatto is safe, as long as you ensure the tattoo parlor meet the above requirement. And if you want to tattoo, read on.
