Today I tattooed my first piece on a live person. It took me a few tries to get it right, but with the guidance of my instructors, I was able to pick it up fairly quickly and gain confidence in what I was doing. There were a lot of thing going through my mind as I was tattooing my friend Ana, who volunteered to be my first customer. First off, I didn’t want to screw up because my she had trusted me with a part of her body for me to tattoo on. Also I was trying to use all of the lessons I had been previously tough, in order to do a good job on my first tattoo. But at first I was getting frustrated because the tattoo wasn’t turning out the way I had planed for it to come out. My instructors were with me throughout the whole tattoo guiding me and letting me know where I needed to correct myself, so that the finished product turn out looking great. And it did. This was an awesome experience and I took a lot of important lessons from it. I definitely feel, that I’m on my way to becoming a great tattoo artist someday, thanks to the lessons my instructors though me, here at TATTS.
