Exucse me i entered the wrong phrase...i meant to write extra color not extra ink.
And also i'm not meaning to sound like an a-hole.
really i'm not,it's just that there is so many scratchers and online "artists" meaning they buy kits online and a book of flash art and they are instant tattoo artists.

The art of tattoo is a lifestyle a life experience.It takes years of study and hard work and building your rep up.

You never stop learning.

I have numerous tattoos on my body. My throat,both arms sleeves,my knuckles,both hands,kneecaps,both legs,and more to come.
Iam neither criminal nor am i uninformed.

Everytime i see a post or have a conversation about tattoos,it's the same old story....
As stated in above posts.

As for asking for "extra ink" for one you should'nt need extra ink. For two a true artist,meaning one that works or owns their own shop will not charge extra for touch-ups.

And if you are starting out to be an artist...great i hope you succeed at it.
But,please for the love of god,tell me you know what an autoclave and a statim is.
If you don't get out of the business.

well i know more than some but less than others i grew up in a tattoo shop. the first time i ever used a tattoo machine i think i was 11(im 19 now) Ive watched so many people get tattoos its crazy so i know all the steps. not everybody can possibly know everything about tattoos i certainly dont thats why i am an aprentice to a very well known tattoo artist in my area which so happens to be a very good family friend. and an autoclave is a sterilizer and im not to sure what a statim is but i think it is a type of sterilizer?

That is really awesome to hear. Yes they are both a type of sterilizer.You are apprenticing at a shop that is great.
You sound like you are learning and you are under good teachings.

I wish you the best of luck.

I'd like a cross on my left forearm, but since I'm going to be a public school teacher, having a visible tattoo might jeopardize my getting a job at certain in schools. In that case, I'd like it on my left bicep.

I'd also like a Storm Trooper helmet on one of my shoulder blades.

Not that much though. For a public school teacher though, they might ask you about it and require you to cover it up with proper clothing if they hire you (and having it on your bicep or tricep makes it fairly easy to cover-up with a formal long sleeve shirt). Tattoo on that part of your body shouldn't be a huge deal breaker for most people.

I'm not horribly worried about it. I'll have no problem whatsoever covering it if it's on my bicep seeing as I all of my shirts, professional or not, have sleeves.

If I do get the cross on my forearm, I may have to cover it up simply because it's religious. And some private schools may refuse to hire me because it's a religious statement. I just don't want to have to wear long sleeves every single day. Public schools shouldn't have a big deal with it though.
