Today I got to practice tattoo shading for the first time! Once again, Julio graciously let me play on his practice thigh. He had an old tattoo outline of a skull from someone else on his upper thigh, so I got to start to fill it in. We had to quit halfway through because an actual paying customer called and wanted to come in right away, and we certainly weren’t going to say no to that. But here’s today’s effort:
I’m looking forward to seeing it healed. It’s SO much easier than lining and I already feel pretty good about picking it up quickly. Now I just need people who are willing to let me practice on them! Any takers?
