    The statue of liberty is the first on myself using 5rl,8rs.The praying hands are the same needle spec.The lady was more than happy but now when i look at the pic i can spot a couple of errors and maybe could have feathered out the shading a bit more.No worries ya live and learn.

    Nice Tatts

    Hi Roland

    Both examples look really good and I bet the lady is very happy witn the praying hands, I have seen similar designs on other people and yours look equally as good if not better. I haven't tried tattooing myself yet but I imagine it's quite difficult? From the picture it looks as if it's on your left forearm which is where I would put mine if I'm brave enough. Not sure if could actually tattoo myself so any tips / advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Patrick

    Cheers Patrick,
    I think its the best real practice Tattooing myself it gives you the chance to explore different theorys.If you choose a design with lots of lines and shade then do a little every day.The real bonus is there's little nerves or time limits.When working on other people i would tend to hold back being worried about causing to much pain.But this does reflect in lines as you dont always get a solid single pass.Adding a little more pressue and i got better results on myself.The Statue of Liberty is on the front top of my thigh.I read that this is the best area to TAT yourself as you can get a good strech on the skin.You have a good mixture of skin surface like near to bone,muscle and fat.And if it goes tits up then its easy to hide.One tip and i think its explained in the Manual.I spent 2 hours sitting down drawing a portrait above my knee.I liked the look but when i stood up the face looked like a squashed orange.These things are here to test us
