haha, i was thinking, wondering, hoping, that someone out there that's going to the jambo (or someone in the slabs) knows how to tattoo semi-decently?

I have a stupid-easy cover up i want done on my wrist (three thick black lines) and if i could find someone to do it, I figure i could buy a cheap tattoo set online and then other people could get tats too.

might be a ridiculous idea, but we did it a few years back when i lived at east jesus, you just have to tattoo in an RV or something so you're not doing it outside. despite it being a cheap kit, it did a pretty good job.

anyways, just an idea, if anyone has the skill.

You can just get tattoo needles online in bulk ($8 for like 500 I think?) and use them for stick & poke. Thats generally what I do for myself, its so easy & nearly painless, plus clean up for a machine is a pain in the ass.

Welllll, these did just show up in my mailbox. The only stick n poke I've done is delightfully janky though so I was hoping there might be some more skilled practitioners in attendance. :D

I've found it helps a lot to have a friend hold the area to be tatted taught, it prevents bleeds & shaky lines. The first time I did it to myself I didn't know that and it had to be cleaned up. Regardless of whether or not you go machine congratulations on your future ink / cover up! Wish I could make it to the gathering but I'll be thinking about yall from the south.

we'll post some pics and vids afterwards so you can at least see what you missed.

true, but what i want requires a decent amount of black work; i tried to have someone do that with a single needle once and it not only took forever but just came out horribly.

Hi ya'll, I'm headed out to the Jambo today and I happen to be traveling with a... drumroll... tattoo artist working on a tattoo documentary. She'll have the supplies to do stick and poke but no tattoo machine. Contact us for more info or meet up instructions!
