Hello, I'm a latecomer to tattooing and recently came across this forum! What a great platform.... I have lots of designs on Instagram @riddleskin. Last week I made my first tattoo on my own skin. Looking forward to learning

Welcome Leon! Plenty of late bloomers on here so you'll fit right in :giggle:
Judging from you picture you went a bit to deep while lining (hence the blowouts) but other than that, your first tattoo looks pretty good! Way better than mine :ROFLMAO:

Hey, thanks man. Think the blowouts happened when I used a 3rl to sculpt the original linework which was done with a 9rs... Lesson learned! So happy to have stumbled across this forum. So much nicer than trawling through YouTube and the like. ✌️

Hey, Dazza, thanks man. It seems to be settling in okay.
Brighton is pretty sweet although the sun is playing hide and seek. So many tattoo shops here now!

We stay in Worthing with the wife mum and as you say same thing there tattoo shops all,over the place ,most looked empty when ever I walked past ,I’m in perth now and they charge $200+ an hour here that’s about 100 £ .so if we want tats we just go to Bali only 50$ an hour over there and their pretty good artist

This looks decent Leon. ? Did you practice on fake skin/pig skin or is this your first tattoo straight off the bat?

I've practiced on both before but not for a while. I have been drawing very regularly though and pulling lines as if tattooing. I've completely fallen in love with the process. ?

Same here! It’s not just the tattoo art that’s great but something about the process is really satisfying too! Love it! ?
