It is said that most of the tattoo artists tattooed themselves before tattooing their clients. Especially In the old days, they had to tattoo themselves before they were set loose their customers. You could go to tattoo shops and ask those old timer tattooists to see the inside of their left leg or right leg (depends on which hand they use) and you will see some scratches of color tests and other experiments. The advantages of tattooing yourself is you are able to completely anticipate when the line started and stopped and you could tattoo whatever you want with less cost.
Know the Risk of Getting Tattoos
The risk of getting an infection is higher when you are doing a tattoo at home, I mean, comparing with those clean, professional, certificated and experienced tattoo shops. Even you go to a tattoo shop, avoiding injection is still the most important aspect you need to consider.
Choose a Good Tattoo Kits
A headlamp is needed to see tattoo needles and your skin clearly to make sure your work environment is clean and bright. You will also need a pair of clean Nitrile gloves, single-use tattoo needles, ink cups, tattoo ink, tattoo pen kit, tattoo power supply, tattoo grip cover, paper towels, and wax to remove ink from the skin’s surface. When ready, clean the area with 90% isopropyl alcohol.
The tattoo pen transmission mode is a motor, which drives the transmission rod through the motor, and then drives the needle nozzle up and down to make the force evener.
Choose a Simple Design
If it is your first time to tattoo yourself, it’s likely not the best time to ink a complicated image. You could go with a simple and small outline-style tattoo, something that you'll be able to add to later if necessary. Here are some great ideas for you:
