It’s stating the obvious to say that tattoos are commonplace these days. We’re hitting a point of saturation where a bad one can be easily spotted on the street, any day of the week. Overt sizes, garish colours and dated fonts, it’s almost as if bearers are unaware of its permanence. No matter your profession, getting a large phoenix covering your entire back is not the way to go.
Fine line tattoos are much cleaner visually. There are many additional benefits, especially via hand poking technique. Your ink will hurt less and heal faster. Hand-poked tattoos are done with one needle rather than the gun’s seven. Fine lines don’t just mean small and dainty. You can go many ways with it. In fact, there’s more to work with the given freedom of a lighter stroke density. You will have to be patient though, hand poking takes longer for a higher precision. These are five local tattoo artists who can help you execute your vision, and leave you with zero chances to end up like this dude.
