22 April – Day 11. Learned about temporary ink. I got to do temporary tattoos on myself.
24 April – Day 12. Done with the temporary tattoos, I did some custom artwork, then spent the rest of the day coloring some koi flash. I wish I had more time to draw like this.
26 April – Day 14. Trying to memorize things like this: The distance between the spring and contact screw when the armature bar is fully pressed. This is the correct distance for lining.
Oh and BTW on the 2nd day of practice, I totally dropped my machine on the floor! Thank goodness I didn’t break it! Don’t try this at your shop!
And the story continues. I’ll keep you updated with more pictures, and less whining about how hard it is, because as they say, there’s absolutely no crying in tattooing. Hear, hear.
