Everyone seems to have been posting about this on facebook, so a lot of you folks may already have seen it, but for those that haven’t yet, you need to check out this article by American tattooer Jason Lambert, titles “10 bits of Advice for beginning tattooers”.
I’m not a tattooer, nor will I ever be, but I think there is a little something in there that everyone can learn from. I picked up a pencil for the first time in November and started trying to learn to draw, mainly to get a better understanding of tattooing, and art and design in general. Even a rank beginner like myself can take away some real gems of knowledge from this article, I think it’s well worth taking the time to read. And while you’re there, check out some of Jason’s tattoo work, the guy is pretty amazing at that too.
