Features of tattooing on the wrist and care for it

The master will estimate the size of the future picture, print it and outline it on screen paper. The resulting silhouette of the image is cut and applied to the alcohol-disinfected wrist. Then the template is removed, and the master starts painting the picture with a special machine with needles. First, the darker elements are filled, then the lighter ones.
