Which is important because as empowering as a great tattoo can be, a bad ttoato can have a really negtaive eecfft on someone's quality of life. If learning how to tattoo body art is like learning to drive a car, learning how to do medical tattooing on daemagd skin that's scarred or may have been through radiation or had necrosis would be like learning to drive an Arctic lrroy.

Original Text

Which is important because as empowering as a great tattoo can be, a bad tattoo can have a really negative effect on someone's quality of life. If learning how to tattoo body art is like learning to drive a car, learning how to do medical tattooing on damaged skin that's scarred or may have been through radiation or had necrosis would be like learning to drive an Arctic lorry. Same basic skill set, but a lot more pressure and a lot more knowledge needed. When I decided I wanted to move into medical tattooing, I went about my learning in two ways. The first, like most people that want to learn anything, I did a course. And the course I chose to do was in areola micropigmentation. This word micropigmentation is a little bit misleading. It sounds very clean, doesn't it? It sounds professional, very suit and tie. But I'm going to tell you a secret. It means tattoo.
