hey everyone, im rurye, and im in florida U.S. , i was dabbling in the tattoo field when i first turned 18 and got out of it to follow another path but of course now at age 29 my love of art work and sharing it with others has lead me back to where i never should of left. the only bad things is now in florida you have to have a license to practice, well to be able to buy everything for the most part to practice, and all the shops around here want to charge a arm and leg to even shadow someone for a bit.. i have hours and hours of apprenticeship from before but that over 10 years ago, and the guy who first started teaching me is long gone now. i really am in love with the Fusion ink and cant wait to be able to play with that but before i get my license back i just wanted to practice a bit. another thing is that you have to have a shop to put on the application for the license and i dont want to norrow my options being that where i live there are not alot to choose from, so i dont want to just put one down and not be there. i dont know .. i want to start my own business up and by the look of me you wouldnt think that. im the one that surprises you, the cute innocent looking type and if you walked into a shop you wouldnt think i was there to work, you would think i was the counter girl or maybe someones sister bringing them lunch, so im ready to blow peoples minds. anyways im always looking for new friends and people to talk to about this.. maybe share a few ideas and learn a bit more.. im always up to learning.. and i just visited one of the websites i saw on here mentioned by another member but it was a uk based site, and i didnt see nothing about shipping to the states. any ideas? is there any place that i can look into getting merchandise other than amazon.. and also the proper name or where to get the transfer stencil paper ,, i dont have a printer and dont plan on it, i like to free hand draw on the paper and stick it to my customers. anyways feel free to write me back and help me out with any information possible. thank you in advance.
