I look like a carpet
One of the best tattoo artists of the world on the first headdresses, the pain and the problem of choice.
Scott Campbell - the owner of the tattoo salon Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn. It works with the designer Marc Jacobs level clients (with whom he created a collection for Louis Vuitton) and constantly in traveling - his personal presence is required orders on both sides of the ocean.
The first tattoo on himself I've done in 16 years in a cheap biker tattoo salon in Houston. I had $ 25 and the guy behind the counter offered me a choice of Skull or butterfly. I chose the skull. Now me so much of tattoos that you can not count, because they all merge into one big one. I look like a carpet.
I first clave pattern in San Francisco. I have all the time something painted and friend with whom we hang out there, said, "I want you to do me a tattoo." I invited him to draw a sketch and take it to the master, but he continued to get me to himself he clave pattern. One day, he just brought me the tools and said, 'I will give them to you if you'll do me a tattoo. " He believed in me more than I believed in myself. From that moment everything started to happen. It was a real freedom. I painted all day and earn money. I just went from town to town, doing a couple of months tattoos, then went to the other. I could go at least in Tokyo! It was awesome.
place for a tattoo should be chosen with the expectation of a lifetime. It will be painful, but it will pass quickly. If tattoos are very painful, no one would have done more than one figure. In fact, every next tattoo to do better than the previous one. It is enough to cross the line, and the second and third times everything is going on smoothly.
to It is important that the master evoked sympathy. There are amazing in terms of technology tattooists, but rare bastards in nature. Tattoo - a personal experience. It may look great, but if it was unpleasant to do, you will have an unpleasant aftertaste. In addition, before you choose a wizard, check out his albums and photos, and make sure he knows what to do.
The best way to prepare for a tattoo - not to think about it. His favorite tattoos, I almost did not plan. When a person has little tattoos, he believes that he needs to choose a picture that will express its essence. It's too difficult task for a single character. Breathe deeply, clear your head and choose the one that you just like. People think that Marc Jacobs (which I chopped a bunch of drawings) abnormal, because it makes the tattoo with cartoon characters. But he has a good approach. Mark made on a hand Sponge Bob, because this figure always makes him smile. He does not try to tell the tattoo on his pedigree - his tattoos easier and more natural.
I will never discourage people from drawing. They prefer - it's not my business. They had tattoos, which I would prefer not to get involved. I'm trying to stay away from hatred and self-destruction, but if someone comes to me with a particular idea - it's my job to make him a good tattoo and try to express what he wanted.
I like to do technically complex tattoo. I like ornaments and beautiful fonts. The way you write the word affects its meaning. But, despite all this, I'm a fan of tattoos, such as those that make the two in the morning smashed. I am attracted by the emotion and passion that stand behind makeshift tattoos.
People often make the tattoo to commemorate an event. Death of loved ones, love, the birth of children - when emotions too much, t-shirts and bumper stickers is not enough to express them. The tattoo parlor go, when they want to become part of the physical sense of the flesh. It is a kind of catharsis.
Tattoo - the same way to control events in your life and influence who you are on a symbolic level. Previously tattoos were a form of rebellion. I made a tattoo because it was raised in the suburbs, in a conservative family. So I promised myself that'll never be the same as my parents.
To the tattoo is not "crawled", it should be done on the wrist, ankle or back of the neck. But I like the old, ugly tattoo! When I'm old, I'm all lost in the form of tattoos, because I lost the form itself. It's honest. I myself believe that the tattoo should be done wherever you want. I think the emotions associated with tattoos, her symbolism is more important than beauty. Something beautiful can make any artist, tattoo, in which are embedded emotions, will be special just for you.
Take a tattoo only if you feel that you need it. Do not force events. If you feel that you can not live in peace until you have a tattoo - then it is the first tattoos. Make sure you are 100% sure that you want, and do it.
