Body Art Learner’s Guide is a technical manual for artists learning how to tattoo, pierce, and perform entry level body modifications. Body Art (tattooing, piercing, and body modification) is now officially recognized as both an art form and a profession. Athletes, businessmen, and even law enforcement personnel increasingly choose body art as a means of self-expression. Michael Anthony Alberta guides you through the basics, encouraging to practice them over and over again so that after mastering the primary skill set, readers can then advance to more sophisticated techniques coming out in Volume 2. Although it violates the unwritten body art code of ethics and blacklists you from the mainstream body art media, the main reasons Mike wrote Body Art Learner’s Guide is to further the goals of “rookies” whose ambitions are to make a positive impact on the trade, remind veterans what our trade standards are, and break-down the corrupt educational system that’s been plaguing this trade for decades.
