Huck Spaulding, "Tattooing A to Z: A Guide to Successful Tattooing/Guide to Sterile Tattooing Techniques"
Spaulding & Rogers Manufacturing | 1988 | ISBN: 092971900X | 128 pages | PDF | 23 MB
This is a comprehensive guide to doing tattoos, written by a legend in the business. I did my first tattoo in 1986, and it was terrible! I figured out how to do it on my own and the results confirmed that. To do a good tattoo, you must have a good base of knowledge on the subject. You must know about the equipment, about sterilization, and technique. It is difficult to learn the right way on your own. There are literally hundreds of little secrets revealed in this book that you just aren't going to find anywhere else. It's not as if you can just go down to the shop on the corner and say "Excuse me, but I would like to become a tattoo artist". You can try, but I have actually been laughed at on more than one occasion for similar words. Usually, to become a tattoo artist, you must apprentice to a shop owner, "pay your dues", and spend a lot of time doing everything but tattoos. This book will really save a lot of floor sweeping.
