How To Become a Tattoo Artist

  Tattoo is an hot industry in the world, especially in America. To be a good tattoo artist, it is not a simple thing, you need practice, practice and constantly practice. 1. The first thing you need is raw talent. Someone who can't draw or color inside the lines isn't going to be a good candidate for being a tattoo artist. 2. Then you need to hone your raw talent to develop talent into skill. Skill can come from fine art classes, working with a fellow artist, learning technique from books, or all of the above. On top of that, you need to practice, practice, practice. You need to know how to handle the tattoo machine skillfully, how to match the tattoo inks, how to make an fluent outline and so on. All of the things should be taken into consideration. 3. Once you're a competent artist on paper, you'll need to build a portfolio. A portfolio is a case or binder containing examples of your art, to show your different skills. 4. The next thing you need is an apprenticeship. An apprentice is someone who learns a skill from someone else already skilled in the trade. Sometimes an apprenticeship can be free, but many times they cost thousands of dollars. You will need to find a way to save or acquire the money needed for your training. 5. Then you need to find an apprenticeship - but not just any apprenticeship - you need to find the right one for you. One with a master you feel you can truly learn from - not someone just offering apprenticeships to make money. Getting an apprenticeship can be a challenge, so I recommend you read How to Get an Apprenticeship to learn more specifically what you need to do. 6. In addition to needing money for your apprenticeship, you will also need to be able to sustain yourself during training. Unless you are independently wealthy, you'll need to hold down a regular job at the same time you are serving your apprenticeship. You will not be earning money in the shop during your training. 7. Once you are an apprentice, you will learn many skills from your teacher, most of them having nothing to do with actual drawing. You will learn how to safely clean your equipment, how to operate a tattoo machine, how to adjust your power supply, how to protect yourself and your clients from disease, and last but not least - how to correctly apply a tattoo. This can take many months to learn completely. 8. During your time as an apprentice, you will continue to practice and hone your drawing skills. You are not limited to only gaining knowledge from your teacher - you may also have the opportunity to spend time learning from other artists as well. Getting tattooed is a good way to watch and learn the techniques of other master tattoo artists.   9. There's no formal graduation from an apprenticeship. Generally, the teacher decides when the student is ready to venture off on their own. Sometimes a contract was signed at the beginning of the apprenticeship, and the terms will vary. But as long as you are not under contract to continue for a certain length of time or prevented from working for a competing shop, you can decide to stretch your wings when you feel you have learned all you can from your teacher. 10. No matter how long you apprentice or how long you tattoo, you never know it all. There is always more to learn, new techniques to adopt, new ways to enhance what has already been done. Never be satisfied with mediocrity, and never allow yourself to become egotistical. Keep it in your mind that a successful tattoo artist should be always doing a ihard work for more skill.

Tattoo Needles – The Most Vital Component in Tattoo Supplies

Tattooing is quite a favorite choice for a large number of people today. The tattoo parlors are also available in plenty to meet this increasing demand. Also, unlike the olden times where there were pretty much fixed patterns to be tattooed, not its possible to get any of your dream images to be tattooed on to the skin. The designs can be made even by using the advanced computer graphics technology. For those who are planning to make use of the situation to start a tattoo parlor, it is essential to have some basic tattoo supplies. One of the inevitable and most precious element needed for perfect tattooing are tattoo needles. While tattooing, the needle is used to supply the ink rightly on to the skin. Basics about tattoo needles The tattoo needles are having a specific design with many sharp ends attached to a bar. These ends were called the sharps, which may vary from three to nine or more based on the image to be imprinted on to the skin, at the desecration of the artist. The tattoo needles are used to penetrate human skin to supply the ink on to it. The liner needles on the other hand are used to apply ink to the outline to form the tattoo. It was just a single needle in the application until a couple of decades ago; however, now application of single needle is very rare and at a minimum, three needles are utilized normally to form the outline. There are also shading needles used to shade the tattoo and to further fill it with colors. Shading needles can vary from nine to above. These are usually called as magnum needles and are usually arranged in a double-row pattern. These needles are used to blend colors and add more realistic finish to the tattoo. There are various opinions among the users on which type of needles actually hurt. Many believe that outlining is more painful than shading, as it comes first in the tattooing process. Adding to this fact, outlining also requires continuos movements also when compared to the shading process, in which the artist need to stop at every single move and check. As an artist, it is essential to choose the top-quality tattoo needles in order to get the best-desired finish as well as to offer the clients a pain-free experience.

Common Problems With a Tattoo Machine

1. Turn up the Voltage to Max to get the tattoo Machine to Run Troubleshoot: This is likely the same issue as No. 3 where your springs do not have enough tension. Same fix as No.3. Fix: Loosen the back spring screw, flip the back spring/armature bar/front spring assembly around and turn it around so that the front spring is facing downward on the other side of the frame (basically you did a 180 with the assembly). Carefully bend the back spring downward to create more tension, do this a little at a time, a little goes a long way. Put the assembly back in its original position and tighten. 2. Sparking Between the Front Spring and Contact Screw Troubleshoot: Some tattoo machines will spark a little bit but if you get excessive sparking then it may be a problem. Possible causes of excessive sparking is a rear spring that has been bent too tight, installation of a new front spring that has been plated or a bad capacitor. Fix: Rear spring too tight This would be the opposite of bending the rear spring for more tension, loosen the back spring screw, flip the back spring/armature bar/front spring assembly around and turn it around so that the front spring is facing downward on the other side of the frame (basically you did a 180 with the assembly). Carefully bend the back spring upward to decrease the tension. Put the assembly back in its original position and tighten. Fix: New front spring Not much of a fix here to be honest, you’ll just need to run the machine for a while till the contact screw takes off the plating layer and then it should stop sparking. If your machine is brand new and is sparking, this may be the fix for it. Fix: Bad capacitor If you have a capacitor that is the wrong UF, then it may cause the sparking. Liners will need to run a lower UF and shaders will need to run a higher UF capacitor. You may want to drop by Radioshack to pick up a few and test them with your setup. They are easy to solder on and off. 3. Needles are Chewing up the Skin Troubleshoot: This is a tough one as it may simply boil down to lack of experience working with your needle depth. However, if this pertains to problems with a tattoo machine, two possible causes is your armature bar/springs assembly is crooked or your frame geometry is messed up. Fix: The armature bare/springs assembly is a simple one as you’ll just need to ensure that the back spring connecting to the front spring and the armature below are positioned so they form a straight line in relation to the back binding post. There are tools that you can use to ensure you have them straight but generally speaking, eyeballing will do just fine. If your frame geometry is messed up, your out of luck, look at the machine from the top, midline and forward position from the back binding post. If the frame is noticeably bent in any of these views, you have bad geometry. Also, if you put the grip in and you can see that it is going in at a slant, same deal. It’s possible to bend the frame, if this is the case, please see the next troubleshoot on our list.
