New to tattooing have no experience love to draw and have always wanted to try tattooing so the wife surprised me with some tattoo equipment. My inexperience shows in the tattoo I did on her shakey lines depth is a issue definitely going to buy some practice skin to work on

Welcome on board!
Must say it's not all that bad or a first try. But good to see you're honest enough to recognize the flaws and get some practice skin (y)

welcome....
we've seen worse. It's really not too bad and good thing is it can be saved later down the road when you are a bit more experienced...

Welcome. As everyone says from a distance it doesn't look to bad. Iv seen a lot worse from people who think they're good.

well words from a tattooist that's probably far better than I will ever be are "Knowing your art's not where you want it to be and working to improve it is what makes an artist better, thinking you have it pegged means you know less than you think" (i'm paraphrasing here) but you get the gist. and i've seen far worse first attempts (you should see what I did to myself with a needle thread and india ink back in the early 90's lol) that's long buried under other tat's now but damn I thought it was awesome..lol
