Self tattooing

Post by tyler300888 on Sun May 15, 2016 6:38 pm

i'm pretty sure self tattooing some parts, big challenge seems to be holding the machine vertical so gravity keeps ink going down the tube properly.

i've considered belly area but i figured i would have to do it laying down with something to prop up my head.
but at my skill level, i've already attempted parts too hard as it is.

One of my first tattoos that I done myself was on the back of my calf. That was awkward and uncomfortable. If I decide to do it, i'll post photos lol.

i'd like to see that. how the hell did you reach the back?

i'm in the middle of doing my mid/inner calf and it is a pain in the ass to get properly positioned. it posted but i figure what i really need to do is spend a couple hours filling it in and stop being a baby about it.

yeah it was a pain in the arse but i was determined! It was only small and didnt take very long. Its hard to describe how i done it, sorta kneeling on a chair with my leg bent out. It felt ok for the first 10 minutes or so until my leg started to get pins and needles lol.

Thanks reset it still needs work though. I could imagine how hard it was to tattoo the back of the calf, tyler you Should go back in there and darken it up.

Apologies for the delay in response - No the boot is not a self tattoo. I did it on a client some time ago. Still one of my favourite pieces I've done.

I think it was my first b&g piece I did if i remember right. I agree it needs to be darkened up. Finding time and remembering how much of a bitch it was to do is the problem.

Did 1 on my left wrist and quite a bit on my right leg being right handed. I'll do some on my left leg in time but some spot on the leg are awkward, especially the lower leg

Left bicep, Outer. Not all that hard a reach, but I had to use a padded clamp I took off a floodlight to do the stretch. I'm mostly left-handed, so the awkward bit was tattooing with my off hand. I'd practiced for it, so it wasn't all that hard, though.
