During a consultation, the tattoo artist and client discuss design ideas and colors and the price of the tattoo. A tattoo artist answers any questions or concerns the client has during this meeting and schedules an appointment. Once the appointment day and time arrive, a client is required to fill out paperwork and show identification before receiving the tattoo. The tattoo artist sets up their station with a tattoo machine, ink caps and paper towels. After preparing the stencil, the tattoo artist calls the client to the station to begin the tattoo process.
Things You'll Need
- Blank paper
- Carbon Paper
Lay a blank piece of paper on a drawing table or surface. Place the carbon paper--with the matte side facing up--on top of the blank sheet. Tape the blank sheet and the carbon paper to the drawing surface. The tape prevents the papers from moving during the transfer.
Place a blank sheet of paper over the carbon paper. Tape the blank sheet down to the drawing surface.
Draw the tattoo design in pencil onto the top blank sheet. Use even, steady pressure to ensure that the lines of the design transfer to the bottom blank sheet.
Remove the tape from the three sheets. Discard the carbon paper. Examine and compare the bottom sheet to the top sheet for any lines of the design that did not transfer. The bottom sheet is the tattoo stencil to apply to the client.
