Tattoo Artist Have The Right To Say No

 Tattoo Artist at Work

Believe it or not tattoo artist have the right to say no when it comes to tattooing someone. However, this usually doesn’t happen too often but certain tattoo artist do refuse to tattoo certain tattoos, mainly racial tattoos, hate tattoos or gang tattoos. Tattoo artist also have the right to not tattoo a certain part of your body. If an artist says no, than you have to respect that and come up with an alternate plan or find an artist that will tattoo the body part you want tattooed.

tattoo artist 

Strangely enough some tattoo artists feel so strongly about not tattooing a certain body part that they will indeed turn down the business. So one may wonder what’s the big deal. Some tattoo artist feel that having a facial tattoo or tattoo on your hands or neck is a big responsibility and they don’t to be held responsible for their client not being able to get a job down the road or the ridicule they will have to deal with from society so some artist just refuse to do it. Also some artist don’t like tattooing feet and hands because its a quality issue. Hand and feet tattoos don’t hold up as well as other tattoos because they are constantly going through physical “abuse” because those are the two ares of your body that are under the greatest amount of physical abuse as a result of normal everyday life. So some artist feel its a waste of their work, they are also aware of those tattoos needing to be touched up more often than a tattoo on your ankle, back, leg or arm.

So if you run into this problem with your tattoo artist don’t get mind just try to understand they are passionate about their work.

Bob Marley Portrait Tattoo?

I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo for a long time. I never knew exactly what I wanted. One month, I would find one/think of one I would really like, and the next month it wasn’t as interesting. I finally know I want a tattoo that is Bob Marley related. A photo of him and I guess a few other things to personalize it.

My concern is finding a tattoo artist in Northern Indiana that I have confindence in to actually draw Bob Marley on my arm with out making it look all jacked up.

I like:

This is alright too:

Looks like the tattoo artist was drunk:

I guess my question is how much more difficult is it for a tattoo artist to do a portrait as compare to lets say a tribal design? Should I not settle for just any tattoo artist with business? Price Estimate?

What should i do if my tattoo is flaking and looks like its fading?

I got my tattoo 9 days ago with my friends and my tattoo artist told me to put A & D ointment on it for 2 weeks. My tattoo is flaking off the ink and looks like its fading. The tattoo is all black and looks faded in the spots where it was flaking off. This is my first tattoo and i hate for it to be ruined. What should I do?

How large should a signature tattoo example be for a tattoo artist?

I am planning on getting a tattoo of my grandfathers signature over my heart, not really big, maybe 1x6in or there abouts. But when I have him write it out for me, how large should he do it so the tattoo artist will be able to make an exact copy. Hopefully that makes sense. Thanks!

How to fix a screwed up tattoo…?

I recently got a tattoo of the Puerto Rico Flag, but the tattoo artist messed up the stripes cause she wanted to "Add more detail"… B.S. The PR Flag has 3 Red and 2 White stripes.(Red, White, Red, White, Red) She did 3 Red and 4 White (White, Red, White, Red, White, Red, White) and didn’t even place the stripes in the correct order. Not To mention that she is taking up 5 sessions already for a small tattoo that is taking up not even half of my upper arm, I paid almost 0 already for this tattoo and it is not worth it!!! This is the URL of the pic I gave her, just use some imagination on the stripe screw ups. http://www.therican.com/Images/Latino_Graphics/Boricua/images/coqui.gif

I called her and told her she screwed up, she said the next session is free and she’ll try to fix it… How? Should I go to another Artist to see if they can fix it or what? Should I try and get my money back? Is there any possible way to fix the screwed up stripes?

What is the best thing to put on a fresh tattoo?

I have 3 tattoos, and everytime I get one, the tattoo artist tells me to put something different on it, my uncle does tattoos in California, and I always saw him putting Vaseline on them. But places I have went to say not to. I am about to get another tattoo and want to know what I should put on it to keep the coor from fading out and keep it from itching.

What qualifications are needed in order to work as a tattoo artist?

I draw well, and my friend recommended me to a tattoo shop where they are looking for a tattoo artist (I hope I’m using the correct term- I mean the person who designs the tattoos and draws them, not the one who actually tattoos you).
What are this job’s requirements, artistically and practically? Do you need to improvise on the spot, or can you design it over a period of time?

How can i get a tattoo design for me online for free?

I have a great idea for a tattoo that i really want to get, but the only problem is i CAN’T draw. So my question is is there any websites that i can find a tattoo artist to design a tattoo just for me online without going to a tattoo pallor? The reason why i don’t want to go to a tattoo pallor is because i would like to walk in with the picture of i want on my body. Thank you all in advance.

How to get into the Tattoo and Piercing business?

I have been through all my ideas of every aspect I would like to take part in in my life. I have always been fascinated with tattoos and piercings. How would I go about being a tattoo artist/piercer? (What would you call one who pierces? =P)

What do I need to consider when getting a really detailed tattoo?

After giving it much thought I have decided that I want a very detailed tattoo on my arm. However I do not have any experience with tattoos and do not know if any able tattoo artist would be suitable for this or if I have to search for a specific artist.
If you put "quasi-crystal pattern" into google images you can get an idea of the sort of pattern I want.
Is this too unrealistic?
I would also appreciate if anyone could recommend a good tattoo artist in England.
I would be prepared to pay the money a good tattoo takes and also to travel over a distance to find a good artist.
Here’s a link to a more specific picture of what I would like:

I am thinking about getting a tattoo, and I am wondering how it works if you want them to design it…?

I’m a geek. I want a tattoo of a Final Fantasy summer, either Diablos (FF8) or Bahamut (take your pick). Obviously, in-game graphics is not what I want my tattoo to look like. How does this work? Do I bring the tattoo artist a few different pictures of the one I choose, and tell them what aspects are important to me, and such?

To Final Fantasy fans: which summon? I’ve added some links as to pictures I -would- bring in, if that is the appropriate thing to do.

What is the best camera to use for tattoo pictures?

I’m a tattoo artist and i’ve used a few types of cameras already and i’m not satisfied with the picture quality of them. All the pictures i take are very up close i’d say about 2" to 24" depending on where the tattoo is placed and what the tattoo is. So if anybody could help me out with this it would be great.

Is it illegal to tattoo a small without profit?

One of my friends wishes to be a tattoo musician and she understood I desired a tattoo and offered to provide me one free of charge. My moms and dads are all right with it, their only policy was they would not authorize for anything and if I could discover a legal means around the documentation they don’t care what I finish with my physique. So would it be legal for her to offer me a tattoo? I would enjoy to help her out and I would certainly appreciate a tattoo yet I don’t wish to cause any type of prospective difficulty.
