What do you think is the most important fact that you need to understand before giving a tattoo to someone?

@Anonymous

To me the most important fact is realizing you are about to permenently scar someones body and the fact that if you mess up in any way, it’s your fault and you’ll begin to hold the title of being a non-prosessional tattoo artist.

I had this done 2 weeks ago at Into-You Tattoo in London, done by one of my favourite Designers and Artist, Maxime BuchÏ.
I’ve always had a bit of thing for Pirates since I was little and this is the start of my weird Graphic Design/Pirate/Illustration-merged sleeve. I’m absolutely in love with it, especially the symmetrical design he used.

For me, making a chest has always been obvious. This is my first tattoo, and its represents a real starting point for me (and for my future tattoos on my arms).
This is a metaphor of my personality. The all-seeing eye as a representation of my consciousness (« I want, I can, I must »).  Imperturbable skull in the middle reprensent my shyness and my temperament, and skulls that spit magpies reprensent rage in me.
The black / red as a contrast that I love for many reasons, and also that I use in my creations.Why magpies? Since I was little,I was intrigued by these birds, for their Manichean side I guess, in their visual and their meaningDone last year by the amzaing Easy Sacha to Mystery Tattoo Club (Paris).

Took the photo right after I finished getting it done. The elephant represents my mom for her love of the animal. If you were to walk into my home you’d find at least 50 elephant statues and paintings roaming around the house. The year she was born is on the top left hand side of the tattoo. 
I did this in two separate sessions; first the outline and then the coloring. This was the first time I’ve ever had shading down from all the tattoos I have and I will say, it’s not the best feeling haha but throughout the time I was getting it done I had my mom there supporting me. She’s my best friend and my mom. She’s the rock that keeps me grounded and to have her there meant the world to me.
I got it done at Tatu’s in Miami, Florida by artist Tatu A.K.A Yurguen Centeno. He’s an AMAZING artist and has been tattooing for over 10 years and also happens to be my brother-in-law c:

I was inspired by tattoos through my mom at a very young age, since then, well… I can’t say I’m a virgin to tattoos anymore =)

I got this ship last year, it’s my second tattoo and I absolutely love it. I got the idea from a song by one of my favourite bands The Swell Season. The lyrics are “take this sinking ship and point it home, we’ve still got time”. I think that is a really uplifting thought so I wanted to always remember it :)

Shaky handsyndrome

Bummer down. I have had shaky hands since I was in middle school, it’s never going to go away and it alway’s get’s in the way of me drawing! I only point this out because, ya know…tattooing requires the hands of a surgeon basically and I don’t have that.

I remember a while ago my previous artist, Shamrock (before my current artist, Jaime) said that when it came to tattooing and have shaky hands, it’s all mind over matter. Hopefully this is my case. 

Fruity Ink

        

There’s one major “art form” one must master whilst practicing the art of tattooing which is knowing how far to puncture the skin with the needle. There are seven layers of skin on the human body and only two out of that seven matter most when it comes to tattooing. The epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the outer layer of skin and the dermis is the layer of skin that needs to be poked at. A tattoo’s needle’s depth needs to go in at about 1mm to 2mm so of course this is a delicate process. The needle on the tattoo machine also needs to be sticking out at about 1/16th to 1/32 inch…very delicate.

Practicing on a piece of fruit is a safe way to process such a delicate procedure. Since fruit’s skin is similar to that of a human’s, it’s a pretty similar object to practice upon. This is what I had to practice upon since I am still not legally allowed to practice on a real person. I found it more difficult to take this process seriously since I knew there wasn’t really anything at risk at the time, such as permanently scaring someone! However, I still know that practicing on this silly canvas will only better my skills for the future so I will continue to due it until I’m fantastic with it.
