  1. hey!

    whats your take on normal cling film instead of the second skin? in haven’t invested in the fancy option yet and was asking myself it’s really necessary?

    thank you so much for the tutorial <3 My apprenticeship- tattoo studio shut down due to corona so I was a little lost but this tutorial is perfect to get me back on track.

    1. Happy to hear the tutorial does something good for you <3

      I personally don't like cling film. It falls of so easy and I want the tattoos to be safely covered especially during the first night in bed. With cling film the clients have to do more work to care about thier tattoos during the first, most important, three days. So I feel that I can be much surer that it is taken good care of. Also they can't scratch.
      I only use klingfilm if someone is allergic to second skin or if it is a really big tattoo.
      A roll of suprasorb is about 20€ for 10m. For me it takes quite a long time to use that up, most of my tattoos are between 10-15 cm. In that case it lasts me for about 80 Tattoos (25cents/tattoo).
      But it still does not say that you can't use cling film either. You just have to look after the tattoo a lot more. 😉

  2. Hey Ann
    Just wondering if you are doing a tattoo that you cant finish in one sitting(on my self), how long should you wait to start again? should you avoid the lines you have already done, or can you do some touch-ups?

    Thanks so much for the tutorial and all the great feedback

    1. Hey Dylan,
      Gernerally you can do a tattoo on two consecutive days but yes you should plan the tattoo in a way in that you don’t have to touch the aleady tattooed parts again on the second day.
      How long you should wait until the second session really depends on the tattoo. Size, what you did in the first session and what you are planning to do in the next session.
      Because this is a handpoke course I am guessing we are talking about handpoke tattoos. In this case the healing is faster so two weeks should be enough.
      The tattoo should be fully healed at least in the outside and best would be the tattooed skin isn’t “shiny” anymore. If you have done some tattooes you will get a feeling of how long your tattooes need until they are healed and you can use that as indication.
      I hope that this could help.
      🙂

  3. Many thanks for the course, its really well done and thorough. I just have a couple of questions, when you talk about cleaning the tattoo when its finished, what is used for this and how? Also, you mention green soap in the hygiene video. I’ve heard of this but what is this used for and which green soap/what mixture do you use? Is there a particular way to wipe away ink whilst tattooing, should I wipe in a certain direction or avoid the stencil? Finally, should I work left to right to avoid smudging anything? Thanks again, Chloe

    1. Hey Chloe 🙂
      Sorry for the late reply.
      To clean the tattoo efter it is done i use the greansoap/watersolution I also use during tattooing. The greensoap is also desintecting + it is PH neutral and won’t hurt. I never had any problems with it 😉
      Here is a brand of greensoap that I use:

      I try to use biodegradable green soap.
      This is a link to the whole sortiment of killer ink, for example:
      https://www.killerinktattoo.de/hygiene-pflege/hygiene/grune-seife-tucher

      I use a spry can to apply the solution to the tissue, Never directly spray on the tattoo. That way you just spead the contamination. Some people also use a bottle like this:
      https://www.killerinktattoo.de/kunststoffflasche-spritzflasche
      And then just wipe whenever you need it. 😉 The direction soesent matter but yes if you want your stencil to last as long an possible you should try to avoide these parts 🙂
      And yes if you are right handed right to left and bottom to top would be the best way to not smudge the stencil 🙂
