Well I’m definitely going to be going the apprenticeship route and not tattoo anyone but I’m still wanting to have equipment to just get comfortable with and practice. I have friends at a shop over here but I’m not trying to be their apprentice unless all else fails.
I’m probably going to be asking dumb questions at first just like when I started learning about cars. Plus I don’t expect artists to give away all their secrets or respect right away anyway. But I’m still going to try to get as much knowledge as possible from this site. My drawings are original and I’ll be pretty solid down the road.
