    Tattoo School on Discovery/TLC

    it has come to my attention that The Discovery Channel and TLC are planning to air a show called 'Tattoo School' where students are taught how to tattoo over the course of two weeks! They are then given a brand new tattoo machine and a permit to possibly open their own tattoo studio (i know some states in the US require a minimum of 1000hrs experience before granting a permit/licence). As some of you know, i happen to be a Tattoo Artist and have been doing it since i was 18 (with a break when i was in the army) and i cannot tell you how mad this stupid show makes me. the 'students' pay $4800 upfront for their tuition and then get 2 weeks training and a new machine, now what about steralising equipment? an autoclave? what to do if something goes wrong? a million other possibilities that only someone with years of experience can deal with?
    I cannot believe that the discovery channel is being so irresponsible with something like this, what happens when one of these people gives someone hepititis, aids or a necrotising flesh wound?...you can guarantee that the Discovery Channel won't be helping them out or the poor sucker who's skin they just f**ked up.
    as you can probably gather, i'm opposed to this show and i'm asking for you guys to get behind the responsible members of the tattoo comunity and write, email or even call the discovery channel to try and get this train wreck of a show cancelled before it ever hits the airwaves, theres also a facebook group dedicated to stopping it too.

    this sounds like a very bad idea...I wouldn't let someone cut my hair with only 2 weeks experience

    it's frightening isn't it, theres some serious implications that TLC/Discovery clearly have not considered. Tattooing isn't really as simple as setting up a machine, slapping on a stencil and going for it, there's a way of reading the skin (sounds stupid but it's true, everyones is different). they did some good for us with shows like Miami Ink initially but now many of us are sick to death with the sob stories many people insist on sharing with us, we don't mind you telling us why you're getting a tattoo, we don't mind what it is (sometimes) we just really hate it when you sit there for two hours and drone on about your cat that died 10yrs ago!...i'd rather have someone screaming the place down sometimes. Personally, I wish Discovery would just stop all of the reality tattoo shows.

    As much as I agree with you Tommy, and I really do, I also think to a certain extent if somebody is stupid enough to let a hack w/ only 2 weeks training put ink on them, they deserve what they're getting.

    that is something else many of us have been wondering, where the hell are they finding clients?..the local crackhouse?...trailor parks? if have also just emailed TLC's ethics centre and urge people to do the same.

    You are correct. They probably even have those annoying things posted on the street corners (like they do for the politicians) "Want a cheap tattoo? Call us, NOW". Plenty of trailer trash will love ink that hardly represents what they really want. Infection? Shit, they have a cheap tattoo to show their drinking buddies.
    Just go for it!

    I would assume that it is being supervised, I doubt they are letting some hack with a week of actually training get their entire channel in trouble.

    If they turn them loose, I'm going to have to write a sternly written letter to them about turning my application down for Ice Road Truckers.

    in all fairness, that tattoo hasn't been cleaned yet, there's a lot of exess ink and vaseline, it would probably look much better after cleaning (although, from what i can see, it'll still be a bit shit!...the skin preparation is inadequate for a start, too much hair))
