A way to discover a accurate Tattoo Artist

Nothing new has happened on the market since I wrote about amputations and magnet implants. The latest thing is called “Brain Piercing.” Unfortunately, I can’t write about it since I’m still doing some research on the subject, this way, I can write an article worthy of all of you.

But I thought my latest experience was exciting, not very extreme, but so far, it was the most interesting tattoo I’ve got. Thinking about my few rejections, many people might go through the same problem. So I decided to make it public.

I have had this idea for a beautiful tattoo for the last few years. It was supposed to be a line of mirrored phoenixes starting on my neck and following down my spine and my tailbone. Easier said than done, I guess. So, a few months before my 34th birthday, I started to look for an artist to do the work. As many people know, Brazil is a well-known country in the tattoo industry. We have great professionals down here.

So here I am with the project, but because I’m picky about who will tattoo my body, I could only choose a handful of professionals among hundreds. From many portfolios I saw, I thought that only those guys would be able to do a decent job out of my full micro details idea.

Of those five ultra-qualified professionals, none wanted to do the tattoo. All of them told me that it was impossible. And the only one who was going to take the challenge, because I agreed to make the phoenixes a bit larger than I wanted, had a family problem.

Time passed, and I became older and had no tattoos. I’m sure that I do not have to explain my feelings for my tattoo-addicted friends and readers, but for the people who do not have the tattoo “bug,” I can say that it is frustrating. It feels more or less like you have spent months gathering the money to go to your favorite group performance, and exactly on the show day, the band decided to split up for good.

Even higher? All three palettes are magnetized, so you can stack them atop each other, store them on a magnetized board, or divide and separate them from applying on-the-move. The simplest thing lacking is a mirror. So, at the same time as it’s no longer darkish lip liner or overplucked eyebrows making a ’90s resurgence (not that we’ll bitch), it is certainly nice to recognize that two decades later, Aucoin’s Making Faces nonetheless has as much of an effect on us today because it did lower back then.

So here I was with the ticket and no show, better said, with the drawing and no artist. While walking on the street the other day, I saw a small tattoo parlor. And being so devoted to getting my body covered with phoenix images, I thought about stopping there for a few minutes to check out his work.

The worst that could happen was I would meet another wannabe. The market is full of them. Most of the tattoo artists around are not that great. After I finish this story, I will add a guide on how to find gold between pebbles.

Returning to the tale, I went into the studio, and there was this: please state the obvious: tattoo-covered guy. His name is Flavio Vandroiy. I hadn’t heard about him, but I decided to give him a shot once I was there. He had a client waiting, so our first contact was brief, but even so, to my surprise, he was very attentive.

Now, if you know a few renowned tattoo artists, you will understand that more and more, the pop star idea is truly affecting our fellas. Boy, most of the time, it feels like they are part of the royalty and are doing you the favor of looking at your face, even if only for five minutes of their precious time. Please note that there are some exceptions; one of them is the lovely Pierre Chapelle, whom, many years ago, I had the pleasure of being tattooed by while I was living in Montreal.


I checked out one of Flávio Vandy’s portfolios on paper and analyzed his work better through his website. The result looked pretty good. Steady and clear lines signed his tattoos. Then I saw a picture of a very small tattoo full of details; I analyzed it for about one hour, looking at every point. After that, I thought that he would probably do a good job out of my drawing. I sent him an e-mail with the image of my phoenix attached, and after a day, he sent me an honest reply. He told me that the drawing was quite small, but he would take up the challenge.

So we got the image on my back, and of course, I complained about the position. He patiently erased the drawing and did it again. Even if I was pleased with the work, I thought about complaining just to see his reaction. But there was no need to do it; he told me he could change it until I was happy with the placement. So I kept quiet. I hate to push nice, willing people. I would probably have changed the position several times if he were a jerk.

He did an amazing job of something many thought impossible to accomplish. One of the nicest things about this guy is that he is humble enough to tell me that we will have to go back and touch upon the images that he thought could be better done after we finish all the phoenixes. I agree with him; some of the birds’ faces, if you look at a picture taken with the micrometric of a camera, are not identical.

I have many tattoos made by many hotshots in the industry, including my extraordinary first tattoo that Marco Leoni himself made. Even if it is an old tattoo, I got it as a pre-teen. It did suffer quite a bit with stretch due to my growth and the thousands of times I put it through the monstrous process of leg waxing. It is still here, not as pompous as once, but every time I look at it, I know that this old phoenix helped me become who I am.

The truth is that I’m in love with this new tattoo; so far, it is the best quality small work that I’ve seen. It looks like the finest and most delicate lace you can buy if you look at it from afar. Ok, after my narcissistic story, I will, as promised, add a few tips on how to know when a tattoo artist is good or he is just another self-proclaimed tattooer with the artist’s title.

Notice that even if prestigious, international prizes are judged not in the artist’s daily work. The awards are given to artists based on only one job, done once during a competition. I considered a tiny sample worth an honor if you think many tattoo artists do between three or four tattoos in the studio daily.

1) Of course, the studio must be clean and the material properly sterilized. The artist must always wear gloves and pour the ink into small containers to avoid contamination.

2) Look at the artist’s portfolio carefully, not only to appreciate it; you will be searching for tiny imperfections.

3) The lines on a tattoo have to be smooth; jagged lines and shaky lines are a big no-no.

4) The color must be applied well to the entire image without leaving empty spots.

5) How the artist uses and combines colors is also very important, especially if you look for the watercolor effect.

6) Big tattoos are easier to master than small tattoos. Even if the sleeves and the full-backs get more attention, small tattoos are much more complicated. So, while looking at the artist’s portfolio, check out his small and more detailed work. A good hint is to look for some tattoos of birds and check out the feathers and the bird’s face.

7) Also, pay attention to the person’s work when reproducing cartoon characters. This reproduction is very complicated due to the number of details, the perfect thickness of the lines, and the coloration.

8) If the price is an issue with the size or the type of tattoo you are getting, I suggest you wait and save some more money. It is better to wait and to do exactly what you dreamed about than settle for less.

9) You have to get along with the artist and not feel intimidated by him. A good artist will allow you to give your input and not feel offended by a comment or a suggestion. Remember, it is your body, and you want to enjoy every second of the experience.

10) Many people believe that the tattooer has to be crazy, always high, and someone in line with a dark figure. It is a myth; many artists are lovely, sometimes married, and often proud parents. If you suspect that the artist is under any substance influence or has any addictions, you should think before allowing him to work on you. It is a well-known fact that alcoholics and junkies have problems with shaky hands.

11) Also, respect it when the artist gives his honest opinion. If you disagree, try to find another person to make the tattoo. This way, you will avoid feeling like the work was improperly done for personal reasons.

12) If you choose an image from a catalog and want to make some changes to it, a good artist will make those changes with pleasure and will not complain if you wish to make more changes to it when the sketch is already redone; of course, you should know where to draw the line between some more changes and be unreasonable, don’t forget this person makes a living out of making tattoos.

13) A good professional is not always the one who makes a tattoo properly; doing a proper job is an obligation of a good professional. To me, a good professional has to make the client aware of a few details about tattoos.

14) If you are a woman and want to have kids, a tattoo on your stomach or the lateral of your waistline, whether horizontally or vertically, might not be a good idea; it will stretch due to the pregnancy lolossome of its beauty.

15) Again, if you are a woman, it might not be a good idea to get a tattoo during your period or while in the PMS process. Due to some hormonal changes, you will be more inclined to feel pain, or worse, the healing process can be compromised.

16) Every tattoo, when fresh, looks great. The artist should remind you that what you see is what you get for a while. The ink will fade away. Of course, you can delay taking good care of it, but eventually, it will wither and partially lose some of its beauty.Tattoo

17) The black ink will become bluish after a few years. There is no way to avoid it. To fix the color, you will have to retouch the tattoo. You can also try to understand that it is a part of your body and has the right to age. In my case, I do not retouch my tattoos. My tattoos are part of a moment lost in the past, and because they are memories, they will tend to fade with time.

18) While big and bulky tattoos will only have the color fade problem, small and very detailed tattoos will lose the sharpness of the detail and will often look like they were poorly done.

19) It is a good idea to get a tattoo during winter. During the summer, you will have problems with the plastic bandage; it will keep the tattoo constantly moist. The moist can delay the healing, opening a window for infections. The healing process will also be very, very itchy.

20) If you can’t avoid getting a tattoo during the summer, be ready to use antihistaminic pills. They will come in handy.

21) If you must scratch the tattoo, it is better if you pat yourself. Never use your nails.

22) Don’t drink or use drugs before getting a tattoo; it won’t erase the pain, and alcohol can make you bleed more.

23) a visible tattoo can be a problem, depending on your line of work. One day, I hope it will change, but so far, if you are one of those professionals, try to make a tattoo in an easy-to-hide place while wearing any clothing.

24) The hardest thing to say is never get a tattoo because it is fashionable or your idol has one. A tattoo is something personal. It will be with you every single day of your life. It is much more difficult to get rid of one than to get rid of an ex-spouse.

25) When choosing the image for a tattoo, choose something that means something to you. Sure, a butterfly and flowers are lovely, and a cute star on your wrist is very sexy. But how will you feel about them when you are sixty?

26) And last but not least. Never get a tattoo on impulse. There are many other things to do when you are bored. If you need a “quick fix,” try to get a drastic hair change or buy new clothes. Tattoos are something to think about. Something to be seen and carried as art. If well thought out and well-chosen, getting a tattoo can take years, but it can change your life.
