Getting tattooed is not too much of a big deal nowadays; almost every other person has one – either elaborate or just a momento. I’ve been wanting to have a tattoo since I was 16, but due to my indecisiveness and constantly changing ideas, I didn’t find the right time to do it. I told myself to get it only when I have the feeling of “this is it”. And it didn not come to me until very recently. In case you’re a tattoo newbie like I am, maybe some of this information will help you sort out your thoughts – so let’s talk ink!
Being an artist is something that you choose, because it’s what you want to do, not what you have to do. While going through the phases of determining if you consider yourself an artist or if this is just a hobby, you feel like having a sense of individuality and style is the first thing you need. You want to be recognized for this thing that you do. Either your drawing style, your colour choices or anything else that is consistent throughout your work. But that is the very wrong way of beginning your journey as a creative.
