New Reinventing The Tattoo Content

With larger tattoo work, swelling can be a factor that needs special consideration, particularly with clients who are coming for multiple days. With scar coverups, these considerations become that much more important because the skin is far less elastic, meaning that the inflammation might be contained inside a part of the body that can’t readily accommodate the swelling. I recently did some large scar coverup work on a lower leg where we encountered this problem to a fairly severe degree, and although the piece healed well it was a painful recovery for the client- a situation that we always want to avoid. For his second visit we tried doing things differently with great success, allowing us to get all the work done while avoiding swelling issues through careful timing and the use of a fancy orthopedic device, the Game Ready compression boot. You can read detailed project notes in the Scar Coverup chapter of your ReinventingTheTattoo.com subscription.

FREE Reinventing The Tattoo seminar!

This coming July 19-21 at the Empire State Tattoo Fest in NYC Guy will be hosting three events. This starts with a free Reinventing The Tattoo seminar that Friday evening at 7pm; this class is intended for professional tattooers and apprentices of professionals looking to broaden their knowledge of tattoo design and application, using examples from a variety of artists to showcase a broad range of approaches to successful tattooing. Existing Reinventing members are encouraged to attend as well.

The following morning, Saturday July 20 at 9:30am Guy will be hosting his Biomechanical Composition seminar, aimed at artists wanting to expand on their knowledge of composition on the human body with emphasis on the abstract end of the spectrum. Includes an hour-long presentation dissecting the fundamentals of abstract anatomical composition followed by an hour of drawing exercises which Guy will critique at several stages. Bring your pencils and erasers or your iPad. $200. You can sign up at tattooeducation.com.

That evening will be the Biomech Paint Jam which is free to anyone attending the Empire State Tattoo Fest. Students from the Biomechanical Composition seminar will get pointers and critique from Guy, but everyone is welcome to bring art supplies (or their tablets of course) and get into the creative vibe. The evening will include both solo and collab projects. Drop by our booth during the show for location info.
