Very Nice stuff!! I bought my wife a 3 machine tattoo set for christmas. She's a great artist and I hope to get her to stop shakin' and just stick the damn needles in soon...lol
That ..... sorta thing, should really be learned through training.
I apprenticed for 6 months and it's soooo easy to screw something up. It's really not something you should be trying to figure out as you go along.
Just having the needles go a tiny bit too deep, or not deep enough, will cause problems.
From heavy scarring, to the ink not settling in and getting flushed out as your skin sheds, to things like hepatitis, are all very possible if someone doesn't know what they're doing. There's a lot of dangers involved, it is minor surgery.
I mean, .... it's whatever dude, your life and your wife, but.....that's just not a very good idea.
Please do not let her work on anyone but you. It would suck if you were encouraging her to be a Scratcher. "Self Taught" tattooists are pretty reviled in the tattoo community.
Some even get their hands broken for doing it. <-----true story, no BS.
