Don't bet your skin on it. 

The ability to draw neat designs does not make a tattooist. Without the proper equipment, mechanical skill and technical knowledge, that pretty paper design can turn into anything from mush to scar tissue in a couple of months. Every tattooist has artistic talent. Unfortunately, this is false.
