Oh well. I don’t know where to start, lol. I learned so damn much during the past & first week, I don’t even…
Today. I tattooed the first whole tattoo ever. On my own leg, the left one, above my ankle on the inside of the leg. If you know what I mean. I inked at home, though my mentor said that I’d rather ink my first motive inside his studio, so he could watch the stuff I do and tell me if I made a mistake, so I wouldn’t get into the habit of making those possible mistakes (again), but, tbh, I preferred to ink my first tattoo ever at home, without someone watching me “work”, because this used to make me nervous as shit (back in school and stuff), and when I’m getting this kind of nervous, I probably make mistakes/screw up lines e.g. a fortiori. I just wanted to ink the first one alone, the touch up could be done later inside the studio, like new tattoos I wanna add on my left leg (where I still can reach my skin with my right hand properly) someday later.
The tattoo itself… could’ve come out better, lol. But imho it could become a whole lot worse than the way it did. I mean, it was the first one (I practiced on pig skin several times before, but it is not the same at all imho). And we all know that no one is born a master, right? Even if I can draw stuff more or less good, it doesn’t mean I’m used to a vibrating, heavy (in comparison) tattoo machine right away, right… I have to learn a lot more, have to get used to my machine, to everything, and practice, practice, practice. The first step was made today – and that’s worth a lot
I got only a crappy camera, so the pic is blurry as crap and the actual tattoo looks better than on the picture, imo, lol
This is my dream job, and I want it more than ever before.
