Tattoos and piercings are the object for a long time of controversies at the healthcare professionals.
To tattoo (as well as all the acts of physical modification) became a fashionable practice… An increasing more or less well-intentioned number of people wishes to dash into this sector.
However, this type of act is not harmless. He asks for a big technical and artistic control(master’s degree), and is not without risk, notably at the level of the health That is why a good formation(training) is necessary. What is not thing(matter) easy to find… So these some suggestions can help the most conscientious and the most talented in their step(initiative) and will maybe serve for discouraging the least motivated and most “interested…
When you tattoo a customer, you engage(start) your responsibility to this person notably at the level of its health. This type of act, if it is badly made, or in bad conditions, can pull(entail) the transmission of germs, in particular virus of hepatitis B and C, and also of the virus of the AIDS. The infection can pass-principalement-from customer to customer by means of instruments, but also of professional towards the customer and finally of the customer towards the professional in case of accidental sting(injection). Beyond this sanitary aspect, skills Artistic skills and big technical dexterity are essential conditions in any intradermal ambition. If you think of corresponding to the “profile”, your project will ask for a big dose of motivation, patience and modesty. To have a good social contact can be an asset(trump card), but is not indispensable.
Read a maximum of works and magazines(reviews) on the tattoo to soak(fill) you with its culture. Assimilate the various “styles” and the works of the recognized professionals. Visit a maximum of studios and agreements. Discover the material(equipment). Inquire a maximum on all which concerned the hygiene and the contagious diseases. Specific” works are proposed by certain manufacturers of materials(equipments) and\or the tattooers. Their titles(securities) (ex: “Tattoo Manual”, ” Tattooing A to Z “) are promising, but their contents can represent only a possible complement to the learning described below, or a help to the perfection of a person who already practices. On no account they can establish(constitute) a textbook(manual worker) of learning.
To FORM There is no price(lesson) approved by the State, in France or somewhere else, to this day. what implies that, for any proposed formation(training), you have no guarantee on the quality of the price(lesson), the artistic, medical and educational capacities of the trainer, or on its seriousness. It is thus you whom mean choosing well.
The exploding demand, some studios and “schools” had the lucrative idea to propose training courses(formations) which raise(find) more than a simple training course of initiation than a real learning. They propose very often prices(lessons) distributed on one very short duration (from 3 to 20 days) at relatively raised(relatively brought up) prices(prizes) (100 – 300 euro the day). They Generally make glitter a future any plan, in a ” sector rapidly expanding ” but however already well saturated.
This kind(genre) of schools is to be avoided(to be fled,to avoid,to flee). Besides, appear with a professional with such a “programme” decredibiliser definitively risk of you.
In summary: the bad good allocates!
There are maybe ” valid “, but extremely rare schools if it is the case!
It is the most common(current) way, for lack of available “official” formation(training). Numerous tattooers today recognized began in this way.
However, she(it) is not to be advised(to advise), because we work generally with the incomplete, badly chosen material(equipment), the inferior quality. We attract(entice) to its place of residence a clientele not Always of the most pleasant, and the sanitary conditions are often disastrous. “Guinea pigs” are not only explained to a pitiful inking, even to a real mangling… Furthermore, you will miss recession(drop) on your own works: unless having the luck(chance) to benefit from rare advice(councils) of professionals, you risk to repeat “errors” during years, before noticing the bad ageing of some of your.
The learning at a professional:
It is the solution the most suited to assimilate the profession. You will have the opportunity, besides to receive the formation(training), to observe the professional (s) in the work, to raise(find) the technical specificities, and the errors not committing. You will already be in touch with the clientele, and will learn to welcome him(it), to listen to him(it), to inform him(it), to advise it, etc. You will have the advantage to examine the realized works several years ago by your “boss”, and so to measure the evolution of these tattoos, to avoid the errors which you could not arrest(dread) by working only. You will have besides a material(equipment) pro (very expensive) at arrangement(measure,disposal) and your gestures(movements) will be driven(guided), watched, commented, corrected. Finally, you will have maybe the occasion also to meet any sorts of unforeseen Manage. Note however that you will need a big dose of motivation, patience, and modesty in your collection of the “boss”. Indeed, the tattooers deliver their “secrets” only to some initiated, and the plaintiffs(applicants) are many..
CANVASS ONE (of) (the) TATTOOER (S)
Whom you answered a classified ad(small announcement) or whom you tempted the “unsolicited application”, begin by preparing a portfolio which will contain your best drawings and sketch: the quality of its contents will dominate on the quantity of presented sketches. It doesn’t much matter his(her,its) presentation(display) (portfolioes, exercise book with dress handkerchiefs, pad of drawings Etc.) and his(her,its) size(format) (air however post-it): the main part is to choose carefully what reflects best your artistic skills and, possibly, the themes which inspire you most. Armed with this magnificent portfolio, try to establish a regular contact with a serious professional, if you think that the importance of his(her) clientele can justify the presence of a supplementary apprentice. Expose(explain) all the knowledge among which Artistic, practical programme in creative domains, work or personal experiences which denote a manual ease, qualifications in hygiene, etc. Show your interest for the profession and the realizations of the person which you seek. Suggest possibly returning service… In brief, be sold! (Attention all the same not to overturn into the shoe polish of pumps) .Revenez regularly, create a friendly relation, but not Be the tattooer to propose you a learning without that you have to ask for it. Should the opposite occur, tempt the proposition yourself but always keep(guard) for the spirit that the risk of disappointment is big!
To avoid absolutely:
Tumble as a stranger and ask for a formation(training), for a commitment, like that, without preventing(warning); put down(deposit) messages on the on-line forums, and\or by e-mail, without a clear explanation of your motivations and capacities. You will meet probably sarcastic, unpleasant, even aggressive reactions of the tattooers to whom You will address. If she can sometimes ensue from the naturally unpleasant character of some of them, from their bad humor, or still from an exaggerated protectionism, you have to become aware that the professionals are regularly sought by persons whose level in drawing is widely insufficient, and attracted(enticed) by the profession without consciousness of what he(it) implies.
Many young people are notably fascinated by the idea of freedom to be able to get dressed as they want, to make what they want… The tattoo is also an art ” fashionable ” and perceived as a “cool” activity which allows to gain(win) a lot of money(silver)… The reality is quite other, and this type of attitude creates a general bellyful within the profession.
BASES TO BE ACQUIRED
As a rule(In principle), a conscientious tattooer should introduce you at least on the following points:
> Recognition of places, the material(equipment) and its functioning;
> Preparation of the material(equipment), the knowledge of all the aspects concerning the hygiene;
> Assimilations of the various techniques of bases, graphic techniques, and styles by a diligent observation;
> Practice, on simple and fast works, then gradually towards more complex works, always under the supervision of your trainer, which will deliver you to yourself only when he will judge that you are finally “loan”.
From then on, a long road remains to cross(to go through) to go to the “maturity”. Only the experience(experiment) gives a luck(chance) to be recognized by the public and by his peers…
The experimented tattooers admit themselves to continue to learn(teach) after ten or twenty years of practice!.
