In our Artist Spotlight galleries we’ve featured numerous artists who got their start as scratchers. However, even those artist will readily admit that they made plenty of mistakes while scratching and would never recommend anyone get a tattoo done by a scratcher.
Professionals who were once scratchers are the exception, not the rule. Most tattoo artists nowadays get their starts as apprentices and practice alongside their mentor for years before they start professionally tattooing.
The truth of the matter is that tattooing involves bodily harm. If not done in a sterile environment by a professional with training and experience, you could wind up sustaining serious damage. Escaping with just one of these terrible tattoos is more of a blessing than a curse.
Do yourself and your body a favor. Get tattooed by a professional, not a scratcher.
