I prefer a forum any day over a Facebook group, so I am super stoked about finding this place. Drawing and painting was a big thing for me when I was younger but when I got into being a Machinist my Art focus kindly diminished into that day in-day out ho-hum life.
I decided to get into tattooing for two reasons: Tattoos and Machines are cool as shit, and it would force/encourage me to get into that art zone that I Ignored all these years.

Welcome in Theo!

We are a lot in this place, coming back to our arty roots.

Where are you in this journey? Picked up some machines, needles and ink? Already tattoed some fake or real skin?

Peace,

DKJ

I have a few coil machines, pens, and a good stock of needles/ink and fake skin. I haven't tried fake skin yet but I have put a couple of simple flash Tatts on the wife and myself in the past. I guess I am at the point where I want to learn more from others and be inspired by the art of others. There is only so much you can do by yourself without a teacher.

Great, could you post some pics of those you made?

Fake skin is a great way to work on your techniques and experiment.

Peace,

my dad retired to hot springs - went to "say good bye" a few years ago... really loved it down there.

i got into machining because i'm an artist AND i like science/math/building.... i think machining and art can be very compatible. i don't machine now.... i wore a coat & tie to an interview once & the quality director saw me & told HR to "put him in quality". 6 years later I am a quality engineer for a med device company.

your in the right place to learn.

welcome aboard.
