Tattoo Art is Evolving
The world of tattooing has changed greatly for the tattoo artist. No longer are they solely found in run down areas of town or in prisons, though there are still those who tattoo in such places. Now there is a greater appreciation for the wonders that can be etched out upon the human skin. Prime time television has shows following the lives of prominent artists.
Most states have at least one tattoo convention each year and there are even schools to help train future artists.
The most a person could hope for was to be trained from someone already in the business. The designs were often rudimentary and done with homemade machines or by hand. The sanitary conditions under which a tattoo artist operated were atrocious and sometimes downright disgusting. Not much was known about antibacterial remedies and TLC. As a result there were many cases of ink poisoning due to ill prepared inks, needles and dyes.
Out with the Old and in with the New
Luckily for the modern world the tattoo artist has reached a new respectability. There are specialty magazines and gatherings where the artwork of tattoos can be found. The tattoo “joint” common to the fast food nation where everything is done as quickly as possible with little thought to quality has now come into competition with tattoo parlors resembling upscale salons.
The clientele of these establishments want something more exotic than the standard butterfly tattoo. They are looking at this permanent design as a way to showcase superior skills. Many times incredible one of a kind drawings and pictures can be found that show the most intricate details.
The tattoo artist can do more than just place ink to skin. Many studios feature artists that specialize in piercing as well. The tattoos and piercing combination is very popular as it adds a choice and variety to what a customer might be seeking. Unlike tattooing, a piercing can be removed and unless it is a form of extreme piercing, it leaves no lasting mark. Watch this video the see the creative side of how body piercing’s and tattooing are combine in body artistry. Some of the piercing areas include Facial, nose Eyelids, nostrils, lips, eyebrows, tongue, belly button, nipples, private parts, cheek, ears, back, eye lids, men, women and breast.
As the world and culture continues to change there will be a larger number of influences the tattoo artist is afforded. Their work will be a lasting mark upon the cultural relevance in which they live and surrounds them. The pop culture, art world and lives of many will cross paths with this mastery of skin and ink.
