There`s something that i have found funny well, more pathetic than funny and is that some tattoo artists like to brag about not having to use stencils, like they just start inking on the skin raw, and more often than not they couldn´t even draw a copy of the design on paper to begin with, yet they still insist on never using the goddamn preliminar lines because thats totally not "pro". Its something thats going to be on someone`s skin forever! Even if you have some practice, why wouldn`t you want to cover all your bases? why fuck around with it? specially in designs with very clean linework , why put that margin of error there? its not even like they have 30 yrs of awesome tattooing on their backs, aggghh! Then that firewomen, handicapped pin up thing shows up.
Tattoo artists can be very good at what they do, when they are not, god, you would like to smack the shit outta them.
