I`m qualified, and able, to answer just about any tattoo-related question that someone considering getting a tattoo might have, or that someone with a new tattoo might have. As a professional, and established, tattoo artist and studio owner, with over 8 years of experience in tattoo studios, I`m able to answer any technical question(s) that another tattoo artist or apprentice might have. I will not answer any technical questions, about tattooing, that will help or encourage amateur tattoo artists. I am adamant in my belief that only properly trained (i.e. formal apprenticeship) tattoo artists working in licensed studios should be tattooing- the health risks associated with tattooing make amateur tattoo artists extremely dangerous. However, I`m also a vocal advocate of educating the public about tattooing so that they will make better choices both in terms of design and in terms of which artist or studio the choose. With the explosion in popularity that tattooing has enjoyed in recent years, there has come a wide range of choices available to potential tattoo clients. Unfortunately, many of the options these days, in terms of artists and studios, are really inferior. With being educated about what to look for in a tattoo artist or a tattoo studio, the average tattoo client is really in a crap shoot with very permanent consequences. It`s my hope that be helping to educate and inform the public about tattooing people will get better tattoos, which benefits tattoo artists that put in the work and care to be at the top of the industry, and that the industry as a whole will benefit.
