Just got a tattoo kit today and did a few practices. Had a real problem making the pink ink take. And a real problem wiping away the black.



The star is supposed to have eyes but you cant see them because of the smeared ink...

Some new.

Hiya Ash,
To cure the smearing problem, put a really thin slither of vaseline on quite frequently, and also use vaseline to clean it down afterwards, not water.

If you look around here, not many people use fake skin anymore, its all done on pig skin. Much better results.

Keep practicing. :icon_razz:

pig skins defo the way to go try a small local butcher for it cos some of the bigger comertial butchers and supermarkets use a machine to remove the skin from the rest of the meat and it causes little slits all over the skin witch makes it more difficult to clean etc a small butcher will be removing it with a knife it wont be as neat but the skin will be in better condition

hope this helps:)

Theres no local family butchers near me, only big supermarket ones. Id like to have some piggy cause this practice skin is hell.

But anyways here some new ones.
