31. I’ve had some problems with my redheaded clients healing, what’s going on?

Well, since different skin types may have a hard time healing than others, I would suggest taking a look into this information a bit more by speaking to a physician. However, there is nothing as of now that I could find why healing may occur oddly on a redheads skin. For starters, I would suggest taking a look into the ink you are using, taking a pole of how it is healing on certain clients. It may be time to integrate some different ink into your artwork.

32. Why are my images grainy from scanners and digital cameras?

On a normal basis, it is the operator who isn’t using the equipment properly. Also, it is important to keep in mind that the shop atmosphere isn’t the most forgiving on a digital camera.
Make sure that you have all of your settings correct on both camera, and your scanner before continuing. Reading your users manual will also help in future misuse, and allow you to better use your equipment and produce breathtaking images to add to your portfolio.

33. How should my client manage their hair over a tattoo?

Hopefully your client should know how to manage their hair, however one of the best parts of a tattoo is its relative low maintenance stance. However, if your client would like to clean up the hedges a bit, they can do almost anything with little to no adverse effects on their new tattoo. These range from shaving, waving, epil stop spray, nads, nair, or what I find to be the best is just to use an old fashion facial hair clipper to trim the area. Using the clippers tend to eliminate ingrown hairs, which can in the long run cause infection and possible loss of some pigment.
