^nice pic. I'm glad I got to see it before it likely goes bye bye.

--------------------------------------

That was a sweet video. Why would it influence anyone getting a tattoo subby? We can see precision machinery at work in slow motion, thus increasing our confidence in the application of a tattoo.

That's a tattoo in progress, yup.

It's a process of sticking ink under the skin, with a needle. Been that way for a long, long, long, long, long time. From bone needles and ash, and sometimes urine--which has been used as an antiseptic and is relatively sterile save when someone has a nasty infection brewing inside--to plant dyes and other color additions. The modern tattoo gun is the descendant of an electric pen invented by Edison, and later modified by the tattoo community, using electromagnets to drive the "punch" portion of the show for very precise depth and length of stroke, using a variety of needle bundles to deliver the ink--or even a single needle for very fine work, and bundles for coloration.

It ain't painless. And pretty Gottverdammt everyone knows this who have thought about getting a tattoo, so what was the purpose of the "warning" portion of the show for this damn thing?

That was cool.

I have several tats and have toyed with the idea of learning the art myself.
 
2014-05-06 10:04:35 AM
So subby thought tats were just drawn on with a sharpie or something?

I have no idea why this is watch-worthy.

phenn: That was cool.

My Dad picked up tattooing when he was in his late 30s. He mustered out of Army, was working construction, and then got a tattoo and was fascinated by the work, and given his own art, it was a natural fit. He apprenticed at a fairly advanced age, given the industry, and he is now partners with a great shop in Texas--his partner and he both apprenticed under the same guy, and their styles fit very well together, and they've got a rotating bunch of guests who tattoo with them, and are doing some great work. It's possible to get in even relatively late, but if you do go in, understand that it takes a slightly different mindset than working on paper. My Dad pretty much transferred a lot of the pointillist techniques that he'd been doing already to ink and paper, but it was still a learning curve, since paper doesn't roll or twist or give like skin does.

I've seen some pointillist tats recently and they are amazing. Good on yer dad and thanks much for the advice.

Jaysus, that looks worse than it feels.  Welp, off to my last session.
 
2014-05-06 11:26:47 AM
Would have been interesting to see high speed film of some different colors because the black does tend to hide some of the action.

Also, depending on where the tat is, the reaction of the skin/flesh when the needle is hitting it will be different, e.g.: Shin vs. bicep.

Because sometimes it's cool to how things work in slow motion.

High speed, close-up porno would be weird.

I envy tattoo artists:  They have mad drawing skills, and an appreciation of visual perspective that might have to be genetic to obtain.  (Most of their canvases have some form of curvature to them - if you don't factor that in, stuff can look seriously messed up.)

I'd love to become a tattoo artist - but my drawing skills are pretty much limited to stick people.

That is not what I took subby as implying.  More of the "ooga booga if you knew what it looks like you won't do it!!!!"  bit.

it's cool on the slo-mo level, sure.  So is a bone saw.

Yes, I have tats.

LiveLeak not allowed at work.  Has anyone found a YouTube video?
 
2014-05-06 01:40:43 PM
Fake.

Don't have one.  I guess that makes me pretty damn unique now days.

Conform dammit, conform!!

I hate to break this to you but in the whole of human history nothing you could possibly do would make you unique unless you walked on Mars or something. Getting or not getting a tattoo makes you just as average as the rest of us

Watch it first and then... what? What did you think was happening?
 
2014-05-06 05:29:51 PM
It's a warning against getting one in slow motion.

/takes way too long
 
2014-05-06 07:39:57 PM
doesn't change my mind about getting a tattoo, perhaps it changes my mind that tattoo artists are overpaid.  knowing how much the skin deflects, and keeping that thing straight to draw clean lines is amazing.
 
2014-05-06 09:41:40 PM
Thanks to Subby I am now seconds away from emailing my tattooist for another session.
 
2014-05-06 11:57:27 PM
Look if it didn't hurt itattoos wouldn't be for tough people, or drunk teenage girls.

/ Nigeman, you do not have what it takes to be Inkmaster.

Didn't even look like the needle was penetrating the skin.

The defensiveness in this thread is...amusing.

That slow motion video wasn't much slower than a full speed video of traditional Hawaiian or Maori tattooing.

Subby?

That's far worse than the abortion video.

do you mean "defensiveness" or "butthurt"?

Honestly, no.  But it wouldn't surprise me if subby and I think the same on this subject.

Heh, you're good at reading between the lines.  ;-)
