I did these on honeydew melons, tried grapefruits but it didn't work out too well. I did the tribal 1st and the butterfly second. Tell me what you guys think(be honest). I had a blast doing them. Give me a critique

Great first practise tattoos rick, it is harder to practise on fruit than it is on practise skin and pig skin because of the shape and it can be difficult to rest your hand on fruit, but it gives you a better practise.

The melons are way better than the grapefruits to practice on,much more durable, i liked it better than the practice skins too(at least the one that came with my kit). They are still a pain to put the stencil on. I can't get pig skin, so i can't compare it to that. The melons kind of bleed like a person would also.

I used a 5rl and 7rs for needles, and the inks are whatever came with my kit, bottles are unmarked. Thanks evrybody
