How to Tattoo: A-Z



This is basically the Bible of tattooing. Written by the legend Huck Spaulding.

Tattooing A to Z was written to share with you what Huck learned through many years of first hand experience. Don’t expect this book to make a master tattooist out of you in a few days, but what you will gain from it may have taken you years to find out. From set up and maintenance of machines to setting up your own shop, Tattooing A to Z, A Guide to Successful Tattooing is a valuable tool for anyone starting out in the business. We hope that it gives you the information you have long been searching for.
