I agree with all the above comments, I practised on pigskin for months (still do), but then i was aked to do my first tattoo on human skin. The hardest part i found was overcoming my nerves but once i got started found it to be 100% easier.
The only thing i would say is make sure that every piece of equipment you use is clean etc, you cant infect pig skin.
Good luck mate and look forward to see your tattoos on here.
would be good to see peoples 1st every attempts on themselves[/QUOTE]
Hi Tony, I haven't been able to practise on pig as much as I would like but I have done a couple on my leg. The main reason I did my leg was, as everyone knows, pig skin can't tell you if you are doing any harm so I wanted to know if I was going in deep enough etc. etc. So here is my first leg attempt which I will shade after a lot more pig skin practise. :icon_mrgreen:
