Tatto Designs

Surely this works the same way, and is a form of discrimination in itself ? Years ago, in some Eastern cultures, the side of the nose that the stud was worn, indicated whether the wearer was married or not. These days it is merely another form of body adornment, as much as in the West.

Finishing adhering the stencil

When finished adhering the stencil, it should be cleaned up. Grasp it with a set of medical tongs and hold it in the ultrasonic tank for a few seconds, then wash it good under the faucet. It then should be dried with a paper towel and then filed away.
If you can get a good Xerox of something, it can usually be reproduced on skin. It’s difficult to reproduce a photograph, but there have been done some good likenesses of peoples faces.
Do tattoos from drawings because that way it’s easier to get lines for the stencil. If you’re doing a back piece the exact size of a record cover, tape two spirit masters together to make the design side by side, tape the tops and bottoms together. Then staple Xeroxed copy on top of the spirit masters, white side up. Do this on a clean, flat, hard table. Just trace over all the lines and there you have a perfect stencil. Remove the staples after checking to make sure all the lines are traced over. Then carefully remove the carbon paper from the sheets, being careful not to dislodge the tape holding them together exactly.
All these methods in this chapter work really well and should be used with each other. Choosing the right method depends upon the circumstances. It can only be stressed that the beginning tattooist practice making stencils and transferring them until perfection is attained. The stencil is very important to tattooing since a clean stencil is easier to tattoo from and a sloppy one produces sloppy results. Perfect stencil making is a requirement to professional tattooing.

Different kind of tattoo designs

When you walk into a tattoo shop, there is color everywhere. Unless you specialize in black only, people expect to see designs in some sort of color. Flash sheets normally come in black shading only, and it is your responsibility to color them. The most common way is water color, magic marker or colored pencil. Colored pencil is the easiest because it is cleaner to use and the colors are already visible just sitting on the table (making it easier to visualize). Good advice here is to color the designs simple and eye catching. If in doubt about how to color something, color it with just black and shading. It’s very acceptable and always looks good.
If you make a super colorful flash sheet and cannot tattoo it like it is, your business will suffer and people will be let down. Color them just like you plan to tattoo them and everyone will be happy.
Plan to order two sheets of each flash sheet. One is for the walls and the other for stencil making and showing customers variations of it. (This saves taking down and putting it up again all the time.)
Most tattooists, after coloring their sheets, either frame them or wrap cellophane around them before hanging them up. This keeps dirt off, looks very professional and makes cleaning them easier without ruining designs.

Purchasing the larger designs is sometimes the better deal, because a local printer can reduce them, making them any size you want. Enlarging costs more, and for a small fee, you can have all the sizes you want of a particular design. Cut them out, paste them on a sheet of paper, color them in and hang them next to the larger designs they are reduced from. Some customers have a budget and if they like a design but if it is too big and costly, you can still have their business if you have smaller, less expensive duplicates around for them.
The standard designs that everyone is interested in, and you should have a large selection of, is as follows: Roses, flowers, eagles, parrots, birds, Chinese birds of paradise, sea themes and ships, vikings, skulls, dragons, snakes, tigers and lions, carp and fish, grim reapers, unicorns and women.
The flash sheet is the tie between you and the customer, so choose it carefully. Start collecting it immediately and it won’t be long before you have an assortment for everyone.

Tattooing dark skinned person

There is no problem tattooing a dark skinned person. Of course, the tattoo will not stand out as much as it does on white skin, especially if the person has real black skin. Contrary to belief, white ink is not the solution to tattooing black skin. Red and black tattoo ink will show up the best. Forget about using white, it doesn’t even look good under black skin. On Latins, Mexican or Oriental people, all tattoo colors will show up well. Some dark skinned people will hesitate in getting tattooed because they think it won’t show well on their skin. This is when you should do a bit of public relations work and assure them that the tattoo will look just great. Having a couple of photos of previous customers with dark skin showing their new tattoo will help convince the reluctant prospect. Another thing you should keep in mind is try to have a real dark skinned person get the tattoo on the inside of his forearm, they are usually a bit lighter in this area and the tattoo will stand out more vividly. Don’t forget if it is a profile tattoo, have it facing outboard on the inside of the arm and inboard if it is on the outside of the arm.
