While interviewing 434 Tattoo’s Marko Livingston for an upcoming blog, he asked to see a recent piece Adam worked on for me. I had observed Adam ask someone this same question while I was getting some work done and I was curious why tattooists ask this so I went to the man himself, who has been tattooing for two decades…
Why do tattoo artists ask to see a completed tattoo?
“The tattoo changes. We want to see how it turns out. When a tattoo is first finished, it may have redness and swelling in different parts. When it heals, some of the darkness from the ink fades out.” ~ Tattoo Adam
