My name is Jerimy from Hawaii, but everyone can call me Jermz. First of all I am no pro. Extreme beginner in fact. I don’t have a big artistic background, i haven’t been drawing my whole life, etc. I just love tattoos, which is why I believe this forum is one the best things a beginner like me could stumble across. I am willing to learn anything. I am determined to become a Tattoo ARTIST, and not JUST a tattoist.
You have to DRAW a lot..
Every day you need to be tracing… and tracing… and tracing.
If you can’t draw well – then you have to trace… until you can draw the things you trace in your sleep.
Then when you understand the shapes and patterns in the things you trace – you will start to combine and resize them into your own unique designs.
But it takes a lot of practice… trace trace trace… and when you hand hurts – trace some more –
get some sketchbooks… and just try to copy people’s work. fill a whole sketchbook –
until you get to the point that you can draw original stuff…
“draw for days and months and weeks and years…
and if after all that you still don’t get it.. then you can blow your brains out” – Freddy Got Fingered Movie Quote http://www.script-o-rama.com/movie_scripts/f/freddy-got-fingered-script-transcript.html
