For me the Tattoo Mentor Class/Seminar was informative and one of the greatest experiences I have had. I am a self taught tattoo artist. I have been tattooing for 24 years,10 years professionally. I went from shop to shop asking for an apprenticeship and everyone laughed at me. Flash forward 23 years later, and an opportunity came up to take the Tattoo Mentor program. I did not hesitate. I knew this was my opportunity to learn some much needed skills. I knew about Keith as a tattoo artist, and an artist, so I knew I would not be disappointed. I have taken many seminars and none of them even came close to giving me the information Keith has given me though mentoring. I am in debt to him for life. Thank you Keith!

Pete St. Marseille4 Life Ink Tattoos

I was really excited when I got my email saying that I was going to be apart of the tattoo mentor program. I have been at a point in my tattooing for a while now, where I needed a different perspective on my tattooing.

the photoshop tips were really helpful. I had very little experience in photoshop and it definitely helped. Having Keith looking at my tattoos was the biggest help. He noticed things that I would have usually overlooked, like a certain amount of consistency that was called for. He also showed me some new things that I could apply to future tattoos. Such as, creating enough contrast in the tattoo to have better contrast with the skin tone on the outside.

I feel it was a good experience to have. It has given me a lot to think about for my career. What I need to start doing and how I need to apply myself. I hit a place of complacence and I need to work my way out of it. Thank you for the teachings, I will put them to good use.

Joe MackenzieWay of Ink Tattoos

Weve carried Keith Ciaramellos instructional DVDs since the early days of Tattoo Education and theyve always been a mainstay among our respected educational products, and have always had very positive feedback from artists of all experience levels who are seeking to expand their skills in realism tattooing. We look forward to seeing all the new material that he is producing under the Tattoo Mentor series.

Guy Aitchison, tattooist since

In the few years that I have personally known Keith, he has proven himself to be one of the most passionate, straight-talking, informative, and multi-skilled artists I have ever encountered. His understanding of not only the history of tattooing and illustration, but the science behind it, paired with the willingness to share this knowledge, has made him one of the most sought after tattooists in North America. He constantly strives to pull the best art out of young up-and-coming artists, as he does the same for himself, and his art.

Jason Edmiston, Illustrator,

Talented, driven, dedicated, always striving to improve, these are some of the immediate things that come to mind when I think of Keith.The first time we met, on his own time, he brought some young artists to visit my studio ,his enthusiasm was contagious and we became fast friends.This desire to inform others and share knowledge are what help Keith stand apart in todays competitive cutthroat art and tattoo industry.Mark Garro, Fine art painter, Visionary, Pop-Surrealist

I have known Keith since 2004 and without a doubt he has been one of the greatest artistic influences in my life. There are many amazing artists but few who can educate effectively. The saying, Those who cant, teach certainly does not apply to Keith and I am proud to know him on a professional and personal level.

Scot WinskyeInkwell Tattoo

We hosted a workshop that Keith put together and was the lead instructor for. He is an outstanding educator because he knows his craft and he knows the makeup and personality types through all layers of the tattoo industry, both artists and customers. In short, he has the goods and he can relate. As director of an art school, those are the main qualities Im looking for in anyone who is going to take center stage and teach. Keith is a true professional in the best sense of that word.

40 Of The Best Wedding Ring Tattoo Designs

If youre looking at interesting new wedding traditions that are now popping up, then youve got the honeymoon registry, the trash the dress phenomenon, and the increasingly popular wedding ring tattoos. Since we dont want to do just what our parents did, these awesome permanent ink designs make a great ring alternative.

Forever linked or inked?

Sure, getting married is a huge step emotionally, but it isnt going to place much of a dent in your finances, right?

Think again. The average man spends about $5300 on an engagement ring alone, and thats not even the tip of the iceberg. In the United States, most couples spend about $30,000 on their big day.

Whether its the exorbitant cost or the blatant consumerism that bugs you when it comes to traditional wedding rings, a trend thats becoming more popular as time passes is the wedding ring tattoo. Instead of shelling over tons of cash for a rock and a wedding band, a surprisingly large number of couples are bucking tradition and inking their ring fingers instead, leaving plenty of funds for other aspects of their big day.

Here are some of our favorite designs that you can use as inspiration for your own wedding ring tattoo(s):

When you think back on your first date, its highly probable that you spent a large chunk of it in a movie theater. This Star Wars-themed tattoo set not only pays homage to the first movie a couple saw together; it also showcases their awesome sense of humor.

A common passion, such as hunting or photography, is what unites most couples. Tattooing an identical image that represents a shared interest on each of your ring fingers shows the world how something thats important to you as an individual also unites you with the person you love above all others.

Tattoo | body decoration |

Tattoo, permanent mark or design made on the body by the introduction of pigment through ruptures in the skin. Sometimes the term is also loosely applied to the inducement of scars (cicatrization). Tattooing proper has been practiced in most parts of the world, though it is rare among populations with the darkest skin colour and absent from most of China (at least in recent centuries). Tattooed designs are thought by various peoples to provide magical protection against sickness or misfortune, or they serve to identify the wearers rank, status, or membership in a group. Decoration is perhaps the most common motive for tattooing.

If certain marks on the skin of the Iceman, a mummified human body dating from about 3300 bce, are tattoos, then they represent the earliest known evidence of the practice. Tattoos have also been found on Egyptian and Nubian mummies dating from approximately 2000 bce. Their use is mentioned by Classical authors in relation to the Thracians, Greeks, Gauls, ancient Germans, and ancient Britons. The Romans tattooed criminals and slaves. After the advent of Christianity, tattooing was forbidden in Europe, but it persisted in the Middle East and in other parts of the world.

In the Americas, many Indians customarily tattooed the body or the face or both. The usual technique was simple pricking, but some California tribes introduced colour into scratches, and many tribes of the Arctic and Subarctic, most Eskimos (Inuit), and some peoples of eastern Siberia made needle punctures through which a thread coated with pigment (usually soot) was drawn underneath the skin. In Polynesia, Micronesia, and parts of Malaysia, pigment was pricked into the skin by tapping on an implement shaped like a miniature rake. In moko, a type of Maori tattooing from New Zealand, shallow coloured grooves in complex curvilinear designs were produced on the face by striking a miniature bone adze into the skin. In Japan, needles set in a wooden handle are used to tattoo very elaborate multicoloured designs, in many cases covering much of the body. Burmese tattooing is done with a brass penlike implement with a slit point and a weight on the upper end. Sometimes pigment is rubbed into knife slashes (e.g., in Tunisia and among the Ainu of Japan and the Igbo of Nigeria), or the skin is punctured with thorns (Pima Indians of Arizona and Senoi of Malaya).

Tattooing was rediscovered by Europeans when the age of exploration brought them into contact with American Indians and Polynesians. The word tattoo itself was introduced into English and other European languages from Tahiti, where it was first recorded by James Cooks expedition in 1769. Tattooed Indians and Polynesiansand, later, Europeans tattooed abroadattracted much interest at exhibits, fairs, and circuses in Europe and the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Stimulated by Polynesian and Japanese examples, tattooing parlours, where specialized professors applied designs on European and American sailors, sprang up in port cities all over the world. The first electric tattooing implement was patented in the United States in 1891. The United States became a centre of influence in tattoo designs, especially with the spread of U.S. tattooers pattern sheets. The nautical, military, patriotic, romantic, and religious motifs are now similar in style and subject matter throughout the world; characteristic national styles of the early 20th century have generally disappeared.

In the 19th century, released U.S. convicts and British army deserters were identified by tattoos, and later the inmates of Siberian prisons and Nazi concentration camps were similarly marked. During the late 19th century, tattooing had a short vogue among both sexes in the English upper classes. Members of gangs frequently have identified themselves with a tattooed design. Tattooing has declined in many non-Western cultures, but European, American, and Japanese tattooing underwent a renewal of interest in the 1990s. Tattooing of both men and women became fashionable, along with a revival of body piercing.

There are sometimes religious objections to the practice (You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you [Leviticus 19:28]). The health risks of tattooing include allergic reaction to pigments and, when tattoos are applied under less-than-sterile conditions, the spread of viral infections such as hepatitis and HIV.

Methods of tattoo removal include dermabrasion, skin grafts or plastic surgery, and laser surgery. All such methods may leave scars. In the early 2000s a group of scientists developed inks made from nontoxic pigments that could be contained within nano-beads. These nano-beads, implanted in the skin using traditional tattooing methods, created a permanent tattoo if left alone. The tattoo was removable, however, by means of a single laser treatment that would rupture the nano-beads; the inks thus released were absorbed into the body, and the laser treatment itself left no scar.

Excerpt from:


Temporary Tattoos | eBay

While some people invest a considerable amount of time getting a tattoo, others may not want to commit a permanent tattoo on a long-term basis or sit still long enough to have a tattoo imprinted on their body. If you are looking for a great way to accentuate your look with a tattoo and make a bold statement without a long-term commitment of a tattoo, choose a temporary tattoo design that speaks to your unique individuality. You can even change your temporary tattoo to suit your mood or to accommodate a special event that you are planning to attend.

When you put a temporary tattoo on your body, you understandably only want to see the temporary tattoo for a few days or less in many cases. Many temporary tattoo types are made from ink that is intended to look authentic and realistic for a short period of time, and the tattoo artwork may be entirely washed away from your body the next time you shower. In many cases, a temporary tattoo may be washed away in a day or less, and there is no concern about a permanent tattoo imprinted on your body with a temporary tattoo. However, the tattoo timeline varies based on the type of temporary tattoo selected. If you only want your tattoo to last for a day or less, read the fine print before application.

If you are selecting a temporary tattoo, you may wonder what the tattoo application process is and what type of ink they are made out of. There are several tattoo options that are designed to be washed off with water or oil. Some are airbrush tattoo designs that require specialized equipment, paint and stencils. Other tattoos are applied with water and a small amount of pressure. Temporary tattoo options that cover your arm like a sleeve are made out of a stretchy tattoo material that sticks in place but that also can easily be removed.

While a tattoo is most commonly an adult type of artwork, kids often love to wear a temporary tattoo as well. You can find a temporary tattoo that features your favorite cartoon characters. Other tattoo options are exciting designs and lovable animals. These tattoo options are suitable for kids and adults. However, be aware that some temporary tattoo options and airbrush stencils may be more well-suited for adults because of the mature nature of the tattoo.

Some people will wear a temporary tattoo for fun or for a special occasion, but a tattoo may also be worn as part of a costume. For example, a temporary tattoo can be placed on your face instead of applying elaborate makeup. This type of tattoo can give you professional-looking results with less time and money involved. Likewise, a temporary tattoo can be placed on any area of the body for different effects. A tattoo that shows off a faux wound may be great for a zombie look. A glitter tattoo may work well for a fairy. You can easily accentuate your look for Halloween, a theme party or another fun event with a temporary tattoo.
