Tattooing Practice


I decided to teach myself how to tattoo on fake skin! I was so surprised at how weird it feels to pull lines with a tattoo machine. My goal is to master the techniques necessary to achieve the classic American Traditional art style. Bold lines, color packing, and basic shading. Here is my very first traditional snake design! 

Dude I am so proud of that snake. It is so cool. I was like wow I really did that?? I'm just...really excited to be progressing and trying new things. It's so much fun. I will be posting a practice short on my Instagram once a week. Most of the time it is going to be one of my personal designs but I will also be practicing the Flash provided by Tattoo Smart. They have amazing products to help you improve your art and techniques. You can check out their website here
