Anonymous said: about how long do you take on each tattoo? i absolutely love your work and aspire to be as great at snp as you!!!
thank you for the compliment.
the time for each piece varies depending on many factors including: where the tattoo is on the body, how ideal the lighting is and how complex the design is. but i can sort out most designs in a three hour window including set up and clean down time. i work quicker in my own home so alot of my best times have been here in my bedroom.
often working at someone elses house complicates things cause i’m not familiar with the space so i’m not certain of how best to position myself, often the lighting is not as strong as it should be so i have to take my time to do it as well as possible and i get generally nervous about sterilization so i spend extra time cleaning the space.
but really it’s different every time, small things can effect it like if there are alot of wavy lines that takes longer cause i need to be rotating my position as i work, where as with a straight line i can just focus and lay it down in one smooth motion. i have had some tattoos that have taken less than 30 minutes and some that have taken up to 10 hours. so yeah, there are always tiny factors influencing the pace of the work .
that’s about all i can think of that’s related to your question. <3 <3
