Tattooing- step 2: testing it out!

Recall my posts: the purchase of a tattoo machinegetting to know the machinetattooing- taking it seriously, and Tattooing Step 1: plug it in.

Since I got my machine, my schedule has not allowed me the time to play with my machine.  Too many other things on the go.  But I now have a wonderful student, Simon, who is teaching ME the ropes during our art therapy!

He is a great teacher, and he also gave great advice on how to let go of perfectionism.  He helped me get over the fear.

Also, having the space to experiment is key, so bringing the machine to my art therapy room was a good step.
