Hey there, folks. The art of the stick-n-poke tattoo method has resonated with my being for some time now.. I began experimenting about a year before hitting the road. Since then, I've been trusted to tattoo more people that I could have ever imagined.. and I've been able to gather a few photos...
I use a pencil rig too, and have always been happy with it. Its tedious and fun!
I start w a 3rl to do the first lines, then go over it with a 9rl to darken and thicken it up.
In my experience to get them to come out good you just need the patience to go over the lines a dozen and a half times to get a bunch of ink in your skin.
Cant speak to what ink I used as I havent done any for a few years, usually just go to a tattoo supply shop and buy a little 2 oz bottle.
If you want to up your game, I would look into buying a cheap gun to get better lines.
Lastly, lots of pics in that thread @SlankyLanky linked for you. We showed you ours, now you show us yours.
Of course not! Just the Phoenix Suns logo, a frowning alien, galloping poodles, eye glasses, some weird monster lookin pizza slice things I drew when I was a kid, and lightning bolts that are totally not white sepremecist, I swear.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$90.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$90.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
