First of all, Fantastic designs! Very pretty. Second i wanna thank you for submitting this cause for quite a while i been trying to think of materials to practice tattooing on, and i never would have thought of leather x3
I assume you use the tattoo gun often, what else is good for practicing on?
This is incredible. I know you probably don't want to give away all of your secrets, but I am in awe of how clean you seem to be keeping the leather! I have been playing with tattooing leather for months now and have come up with my own methods, but after seeing how refined your work is I have to say.... you have it mastered. Any advice or tips would be very much appreciated!
most people who are learning how to tattoo use fake skin (rubbery), you can get at any tattoo kit suppliers (not great!) or pig skin (would recomend this over any) , leather is very expensive - i use it as i am a textile artist and work the leather after tattooing it (tooling etc etc) leather would be very expensive to practise on! its also much harder to keep clean than the other 2, as when you wipe it stays on the leather and looks a mess. It is also denser/harder as a material - you get a lot of needle drag and bounce and , pig skin is much smother .... dont know whether that helps
