List of Best Tattoo Artist in the World | Popular Rank

A tattoo artist (tattoo master, a collar) is a person who creates images on the human body by introducing special pigments into the skin. In ancient times, primitive tools were used for the tattooing process, such as sharpened wooden sticks and knitting needles. Currently professional tattooists work with special tattoo machines using the principle of electromagnetic induction. The tattoo artist can work on the basis of flash paper sketches or create a drawing directly on the client's skin, the so-called freehand. Tattoo masters can take part in tattoo festivals that take place in different cities around the world. As part of such events, ordinary visitors can get a tattoo from any master you like, it is especially convenient when the master comes from another city or country.
