I've never been good at art in general, so it seems hard to fathom how somebody can become confident enough in their abilities to permanently put an image on other people's skin.
They always say that practice makes perfect and that everyone has to start somewhere, but helping budding tattoo artists practice seems like a fairly high-risk proposition. Still, some people can do it so well that these learning experiences must have happened.
So as we look at the gallery of shocking tattoos that we're about to see, I guess they poor souls who wear them can take solace in the contributions they're making someone's education.
We hope, anyway.
