Tattoo has already become far from new event in the life of stylish people. Nowadays, along with piercing, tattoos of any sizes, kinds and colors can be encountered very often. Making a tattoo is very simple and all you need to do is to go to a tattoo salon, pay money and a tattoo artist applies a desired picture over your skin, first using a pencil and then using a special sterilising machine and injection instrument, which penetrates skin and injects ink under skin.
However, from ancient times there are many kinds of the tattoo techniques. A few people know the fact that the Polynesians had their traditions of tattooing. First of all, a draft image had been drawn on the skin and later on a tattoo specialist moistened a shark tooth in the ink and penetrated client`s skin with that. After tattooing, wounds were covered with oil and treated with charcoal with additions of various styptic agents.
In past clients had to be put in houses of tattoo artists for a few weeks until the wounds were healed over. They even were prescribed a special diet for better healing. In the beginning of the twentieth century in Europe and America the art of tattooing was gaining its popularity and became very popular. That time the first tattoo artist equipment came to existence. The structure of such tattoo artist equipment reminds that of a sewing-machine, where pricks are made mechanically. The device was shifted over the entire outline manually. This process has hastened tattooing and instead of many days the process of tattooing took only a few hours.
In the modern world there are many kinds of tattooing. That`s why depending on your pain tolerance, amount of time and other factors you may opt for different methods of its application.
The first method uses a needle with the tip wrapped with a thread. After moistening this device in the ink the skin is to be penetrated and the ink goes under skin just over an outlined draft image.
The second method uses a model made of rigid rubber with a set of needles following the contour of a desired image. This model is covered with ink, placed to the skin where you would like to have your tattoo and pressed strongly. As a result, the needles penetrate the skin 0.2 inches deep and the ink goes under your skin. There is a method of doing a tattoo with the use of an electric razor. And at last the best method consists in using tattoo artist equipment. This method of doing a tattoo ensures sterility since only disposables are used.
A tattoo specialist places a sheet of paper bearing a desired image and slides a tattooing machine over the outlines. Tattoo artist equipment involves vibrating needles which supply ink under the skin. However, a ready tattoo needs refreshing from time to time since the colors fade away. And what if after a lapse of time the image came to bother you and you want to get rid of it? Fortunately, there are special procedures removing tattoos. We recommend thinking twice before making a tattoo lest you experience painful feelings during the removal.
