my little story and advice
background:I was looking for a tattooist to get a new tattoo done and basically get pricing up good places, my cousin emailed me telling me she had just had her friend do her tattoo in memory of her niece that died and linked me to this picture telling me that he is amazing at tattoos, she admitted she had it done in his home and he is very new to tattoos but hes brilliant considering he’s just started, I am not sure if he used gloves but I do know it wasn’t a sterile enviroment.
whats wrong: sadly whats not wrong, the lines, colouring, text and shading are horribly done even though he is new he shouldn’t be tattooing on other people just yet.
How can it be sorted: this guy seriously needs to go get experience in a tattoo shop I know it’s difficult at first to do tattoos but he needs an apprenticeship asap to learn not to do what’s shown in this picture.
I notice a lot of people kicking off over tattooist’s like this but when it comes to being new at the job it’s hard so I think if you do see new tattooist’s who are old enough to get an apprenticeship job tell them to go get one and inform them of the right sterile way to not cause infections etc just for a bit of cash, I informed my cousin to tell her friend to not give up but go practice on paper first and seek professional advice on what to do but more then anything I told him to stop doing scratcher work in homes where infections can be formed, I hope I have given the right information as I am not a tattooist, I can understand if the person has been doing this years and just won’t listen tbh those people I would usually report as they are a health risk to others but I can be wrong C:
