    @architectus777 ….Too true i am ok at inking but cant draw to save my life,then again you can be a good artist but not necessarily be able to tattoo it on the skin..and i’m afraid being an artist is a gift

    @zstahlg honestly, just use one needle and powerline. Do your line, i usualy use a 5 round, and then once you have the entire outline done, make another line right next to it with the same needle to thicken it up where you see fit. THeres no need to switch needles. 🙂

    @MARMARR1 Not exactly. Just like comic inkers don’t have to be great artists to be gret inkers although it is helpful. If a great artist draws the original, and you are a good inker, then all you need to do is trace the art, stencil it onto the skin, and ink the baby with a tattoo machine. Done deal.

    I’ve given several freehand tats myself, no stencil at all. But then again, I am also an artist.

    QUESTION: For line variation, is it better to start with a small liner and go back over later with a larger one? OR better to use a larger liner and fix the small spots with a small one later?

    @beautifulburnett87 as all artists know, technique is a means to an end. all you ass-scratchers out there who go on about technique never seem to give any advice on how to draw, surely the most important and fundamental of skills to aqquire, the rest is just technical bull and can be learned by a monkey. as chris garver said:if you can’t draw you aint no tattoo artist.

    Lol, i’m pretty sure chip doesn’t care about the comments in here. just sayin he’s been tattooing for 19 years i dont think rude comments are gonna make him say hmmm maybe i shouldn’t tattoo ever again because some guy who lives in BFE and prolly makes love to his sisters say he sucks.

    No matter all the shit you guys talk, the true test of an artist is the finish product. If you have clean lines, smooth shading, and great color it’s a great piece no matter how it came together. One artist might find that starting left to right, up or down, and anyother way works for them and the piece is clean then it’s good work. Maybe all of you so concerned about his methods should, instead of posting your bullshit, post a video of your work so we can all quarterback that shit.
