    5 Month Apprentice looking for some advice

    Hi there, my name is Rachel (or Zooch). 27 based in NY. I’ve been devoted to art in many forms since I was 3 when I started drawing. When I was a freshman in high school I always said I wanted to be a tattoo artist when I was older. When I turned 18 I kept putting off purchasing a tattoo kit...

    Ah, frustation...

    So, I gave myself a little 13 on the ankle ten days ago. It was my first time tattooing real skin. I used an RL14 and kinda over did it, but it came out pretty good. I decided to try again today and gave myself a snake head with an RL7. I did not go deep enough and now I have a superficial...

I put the paper with the drawing directly on the ink part of the stencil paper, trace the drawing and the ink sticks to the back, as it should. Before. Few months without using, I had to trace super hard to get some...

    Fake skin and shading.

    Ok so I’ve ran into a couple of issues when doing my first portrait on fake skin. 1) The stencil will not come off! I’ve tried alcohol and bleach. It’s just not budging. 2) my shading isn’t smooth. I don’t quite know what I’m doing wrong? Any help appreciated!

    Greek tattoo- 15 or 16th tattoo to date.

    Recently done this Greek god tattoo, took about 7 hours. Used 3rl, 9m, 13cm, 17cm. Internal black ink. My own critique- stencil rubbed off slightly on moustache so the shading went slightly darker than I would of liked it too. Let me know what you think! Cheers joe
