Learning how to tattoo has become mainstream with an explosion of 'how to tattoo' books, television shows and tattoo websites.
Wichita, KS (PRWEB) March 27, 2010
For years, tattooing and the process of learning how to tattoo has been a trade secret only.
Tattoo artists would shun any kind of information that was out in the world that had anything to do with the "how to" process of tattooing.
But those day are now long gone.
The new information tattoo website, How-To-Tattoo.com is now launched and new tattooing information is being added on a regular basis. The goal of this website is to give great tattoo information to tattoo lovers and enthusiasts.
Information found on the site will include articles on tattooing, information on tattoo machines, tattoo inks, tattooing tips, and other tattoo resources.
Tattooing has become a hot market. What was once held to the "tattoo underground" is now coming to the surface in the way of new tattoo publications, books, websites and even TV shows on the subject. This has made it much easier for people to actually gain proper tattoo knowledge before becoming a tattoo artist. There are even products out there such as "fake skin" for people to practice on and websites that sell all types of tattoo supplies including tattoo flash, tattoo inks, tattoo machines and more.
Do "real" tattoo artists like that the information is now becoming more mainstream?
Unfortunately, they do not. They still feel it must be something like a "secret society", but how can new tattoo enthusiasts ever learn the art of tattooing and how to tattoo if they do not have the right information?
Tattoo information online started to gain online attention with the release of the bestselling manual on how to tattoo called, The Ultimate Tattoo Bible. It showed everything on how to tattoo including the proper ways to hold and setup a tattoo machine, which needles to use and how, types of tattoo inks, how to start a tattoo business, and more. It has become a landmark book on the subject.
Both products and resources mentioned above do state that no one should start tattooing on other people and to follow state laws, proper sanitization, and more. The best ways to practice are on fake skins or even fruit..but never on real people.
Look for more information on tattooing to continue to gain in popularity online and offline in the way of new websites, books, and even videos. Tattoo videos on YouTube have also exploded as well.
