    I'm just combing for some opinions, I figured I'd give tattooing a try. I have decent artistic skills, and I plan on buying a basic "kit" from Spaulding or SuperiorTattoo and get practicing on a frozen turkey, or some synthetic skin (The things they make these days!).

    Any caveats or suggestions before I plunk down some coin?

    I do a little bit of tattooing here at my vet clinic; just spay/neuter symbols and humane society ID numbers on pets that are anesthtized for surgery. I use a Huck Spaulding tattooer, black ink only. It's harder than it looks to get a nice-looking tattoo. And when you screw up, it's hard to fix.
