Modern tattoo artists actively use effective equipment for the high-quality implementation of artistic procedures. In the 1930s, Latin American residents performed tattoos using a classic sewing machine needle. And a few centuries ago, the indigenous population of the islands of Polynesia brightly decorated their bodies with an ordinary fish bone.
A functional tattoo machine greatly simplifies a purely individual procedure. However, qualified specialists are able to make high-quality tattoos without this device. Handwork is a key feature of the "Handpoke" or "Stick and Poke" direction. This format in art is very popular in the United States and Western European countries. In Russia, the style is just beginning to gain popularity.
The history of the development of the "Handpoke" tattoo dates back to ancient centuries. The origin of the first tattoos is closely connected with ancient tribes who used improvised means for this (scrapers, bones, thorns of plants, etc.). This technique was gradually improved and developed into a special ritual. No less important period in the development of the style was the ink drawings on the body of representatives of the criminal world. Thieves in law, scammers and murderers just love to make themselves a high-quality tattoo just with a sharp needle. As a rule, a professional handpowl master is able to perform any drawings using a pointed metal rod or a homemade tattoo machine.
The handpook style does not stand out with a riot of color. It is for this reason that novice tattoo specialists start with this direction. Moderate coloristics completely excludes the presence of plot drawings. The art form of art is great for honing skills and high precision of movements. The priority of the specialist is put on simplicity. After all, even when copying a certain plot on a person's skin, inaccuracies may be allowed. Thus, the image of the Handpoke allows you to minimize the complexity of the tattoo and the occurrence of errors.
A simple drawing is usually represented by a special designation from music, symbols, characters from animated films, simple images of animals/birds and various emoticons. Especially popular are beautiful inscriptions and drawings in one black color.
A handpook is often referred to as a home tattoo. You can get a beautiful pattern on the body as a result of friendly gatherings in the apartment, where friendly tattoo artists gather. In this case, special attention should be paid to proper sanitary conditions. Therefore, the safest place will still be a professional salon.
In most cases, simple tattoos are applied to shoulder, wrist, bicep, stomach, hip and the back. You can experiment with the play of shadows, contrast, clear contours and geometry. A simple image on the human body can be made in a short period of time. At the same time, the drawing will look no worse than a three-dimensional or large-format one.
