    I'm doing a paper for my anthropology final on tattooing, and was having trouble finding a good list of the steps of tattooing and their importance.

    I was hoping someone here good help me out :x:

    Thanks in advance.

    step 1: call a tattoo shop and inquire with an artist
    step 2: write paper

    the steps of tattooing?

    err... you go to the joint..select what you want done, get it stenciled or drawn on your skin, get the outlines done, get it filled and shaded. then comes the after care stuff... not much else to it really.

    I dunno if that is what you were after.

    i'm guessing you probably want a little history, maybe some "how the gun works" and "what kind of ink" etc. there are books on history, talking to an artist is probably a good idea. consider tipping him/her. time is money, especially to them.

    every good reputable artist i've ever spoken with or worked with has called it a machine and usually when they hear someone call it a gun they correct them

    :ugh: picking a tattoo out of a book of someone elses tattoo's seems pointless. i like designing my own, so it actually ahs meaning to me since it's going to be on my body for the rest of my life.

    no need for this to turn into another "stretching > gauging" thread. you're right, it's a tattoo machine. i'm just saying a LOT of people know it as/here it called a gun for slang.

    tattoo gun scares me....

    steps... dont drink alcohol because it thins out your blood... dont get high because it'll just hurt more. go to the shop, have your design... he/she will stensil it on your body and make sure they sterilize everything before beginning work. Once done wash it slightly often and use lots of lotion. Dont scratch.

    :rolleyes: I said nothing about books.. so you selected to have something you designed done.. you still selected what you wanted.. No one else in the world has the same tattoo as me.. so you are barking up the wrong tree here mate.

    No tattoo for me, I'm scared of needles...

    Plus, I allready turned in that paper so I guess I don't really need this anymore..
