hubiestubert: phenn: That was cool.I have several tats and have toyed with the idea of learning the art myself.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.
Satan's Bunny Slippers: So subby thought tats were just drawn on with a sharpie or something?I have no idea why this is watch-worthy.
