(My clients) Please send me your healed pics or stop in. #Repost @paulbooth ・・・
There is a growing tattoo trend that many agree should be crushed. So, due to overwhelming support, this late night idea is my contribution for any of you that actually may give a fuk... Shitstorm ahead or not... it needs to be said.
Let's see who has the grit! I'll even go first!
------------------------------------ THE TRUE TATTOO CHALLENGE
6 tattoos / 6 months healed / 6 days straight
Intended for Tattoo Artists of any size or shape
Rules are simple: - Minimum age of healed tattoo is 6 months. - Absolutely no photo enhancing tolerated...
There is a fine line between "fixing" exposure for the sake of a proper photo to represent your art... and "over fixing" one to enhance or exaggerate said art. Any seasoned tattooer knows the difference. - Hashtag all 6 posts with #TrueTattooChallenge - Video posts ARE permitted - On Day 6, Challenge a friend
This is NOT intended to be a witchhunt. PLEASE don't start runnin around callin people out... there is no need for all kinds of hate and attacks flying around, just let changes happen organically. Patience.
This IS intended to educate the public with a bit of tattoo reality. We really need to get rid of all this false advertising running around and the best way to do that is to educate the masses.
The majority of the public out there really don't know that they are being fooled. They walk into tattoo shops, even your own for that matter, expecting and even demanding something that no Tattoo Artist in the world could possibly produce... not even yourself. So let's try keepin it real.
There are many tattoo artists out there that travel extensively making it very difficult to get good pictures of healed work. If clients out there really want to do something nice for their artists, please make the time to send the best healed pics you can take, back to your artist! Most of the tattoos that we do on the road, we never get to actually see all healed up and settled in.
Special thanks to @mechmaster_mike
