I swear I’m coming back, y’all! It’s just a super busy time for me and I haven’t had much of a chance to write, on top of having to get back into the swing of things post vacation.
Help me out and send me questions to get me started again!
It seems to me that a majority of first timers insist that their tattoo be solid black. No shading. Just simple.
There is nothing wrong with that at all.
But when I started wondering why the only thing I could come up with was that
It takes a while to learn to see what’s happening in a tattoo. It’s a form of art that we are usually unfamiliar with, so we have to learn. When we go looking for our first tattoo we want something recognizable. We don’t want anyone to ever say “what is it?”
So maybe take a little bit longer before you decide on that first piece. Look at more tattoos in person. Ask more questions. Get more familiar with the art. Then if you still want to start with simple and black, you know for sure that that is really what you wanted.
Take your time. It’s going to be with you for a very long time. You can wait.
