As a huge fan and fellow New Yorker, I decided to reach out to Eva and ask her about her experiences tattooing and what advice she'd offer to others who want to try it out themselves! Here's what I learned:
1.It's not just about technique, but also watching others and listening to their advice.
2.It requires A LOT (like, a LOT) of work.
3.You need to find the right colors for your client's skin tone.
4.While promoting your art on social media is important, remember that your art itself is INFINITELY more important.
5.Studying fine art and technique definitely helps.
6.Don't do any tattoos you don't want to do.
7.Learn to work with your machine.
8.Always keep practicing.
9.Find new ways to modify your art and challenge yourself.
10.Find a way to combine your artistic integrity with your client's wishes.
11.It's about heart and trust.
