ok.so lets take things a step further.someone has taken on a shop,kitted it out,got through the appropriate legislation.now takes on various artists.he takes a percentage of money for every tattoo done not knowing a thing about tattooing.his shop gets recognition and because it is his shop he starts making a name for himself.obviously it is a free world,he can do what he wants,so long as the studio is run in the correct way.but is this the right way for tattooing to be going.
there are loads of studios like this now.camden town being a prime example.barber shops,hair dressers,beauty salons and loads of others all getting in on the action.even some well known studios are run or owned by non-tattooists.apparently frith street tattoo in soho is run by someone who cannot tattoo.unfortunately this is ,it seems how alot of studios are going.if you got the money anyone can open and get the equipment.bring back the old times.alot harder in those days.alot of the new guys in it now have no respect.just in it for themselves and quick money.these are the people bringing this industry down.but hell,its only my opinion.
considering you bin workin from home for a massive 12 months u,ve got 1 hell of an ego on you my friend . i cant see that with 12 mnths scratchin in your home with no pro guidance whatso ever entitles you to think your anywhere near good enough to run a pro studio [get real] there are more than enough scratchers out there jumpin on the miami ink ebay kit im a tattooist now mum bandwagon. and so suppose you pay tax & business rates on your home along with a few to have you clin waste & sharpz taken away [I THINK NOT]
I think so dopey and i didnt even know that there was a miami ink e-bay kit im sure that your moist with anticipation waiting for it in the mail all my sharps are disposed of properly through my local health centre I use only micky sharpz machines, kuro sumi inks, mithra needles my main tattooing influences are robert hernandez, paul booth, bob tyrell and artists such as H.r Giger, Dali, Todd mcfarlane. I hate miami ink london ink etc I find the quality of tattooing to be **** poor there making tattooing about a bs life style joke!!!! I have been tattooing for longer than a year its a bit foolish to assume im just a scratcher you arrogant tit!!! there are some great tattooists that tattoo from home still. My little home studio is more hygenic than all the local studios. P.S I was just looking for advice thanks your an ass
Billy D !
You dispose of your sharpz at your local health centre ! If you were a pro you would know that you have to take out a contract with a licensed waste carrier. You can be prosecuted for transporting waste illegaly.
But seeing as you work from home you obvioulsy don't give a monkies
The fact you use sharpz machines dont make you a quality tattooist & if you work from home are your local enviro health aware of this .the enviro call in a studio at any time to inspect all is above board & up to standard . how can they visit a house wen they are unaware that its bein used as an unlicenced tattoo studio' the only reason anyone works from home is they not got the balls to work in a studio .punters who use home studios dont expect quality tattoos so thats why you work from home maybe . Or is it beer money to top up your job seekers allowance
TBH Mike, I've been tattooing myself and my partner from home to learn more myself as these days no tattooist will take the time out to teach us anything, unless theres a 5K drop on my behalf? It's not always about who's got balls to do what, If anyone were to come to me and say come and work in my shop (free or not) I would jump in a Heartbeat to do it, I Don't agree in doing it from home and wasting etc, I sterolize my needles then melt em in the fireplace (yeah it may be frowned upon etc) but thats what I do, Surely this guy is just trying to get by, Why make jokes about his job seekers to him? Everyone starts the same way, I bet when you first got your apprenticeship you would scratch at home on the weekend with your mates? exactly.... we're all here because we love tattooing, not because we wanna stick people with needles n pray to god our skills are good enough and we dont kill em...
